A little about our history - my uncle founded a parasailing company in Vallarta in the 1960s and built it up to numerous parasailing concessions throughout the city. This led me to start as a parasailing instructor when I was in university. I continued working in parasailing for the next 14 years and was eventually given the opportunity to own one concession. My company operates very responsibly, only hiring the most experienced employees, and safety is always our top priority. What sets us apart from other parasailing concessions is that you fly much higher when taking off from the beach vs. a boat. Therefore, the view is unparalleled. For your convenience, we also cover the taxi to the location. Parasailing is my passion, I love to show tourists the beauty of our quaint little city from a bird's eye view! Vallarta Parasailing operates on the beach of Sunscape Hotel (formerly Holiday Inn). Come experience Vallarta from the Air! The best view in the city, guaranteed!
