Paragliding In Mexico?


my name is Thomas and I am a german paragliding pilot. I visit Mexico from 17th till 25th of March. During this time I want to fly somewhere around Puebla. I read something about Valle de Bravo. Maybe there are some closer or better places to fly. Can you tell me where the best place to be is?

To proof my insurance and membership in the German Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (DHV), I will take my national license and my IPPI-Card (International Pilot Proficiency Identification) with me. Is there anything else I have to consider?

Kind regards

Thomas, we have a good friend who lives in Valle de Bravo — he is a former paragliding pilot and has told me that Valle is a very important center for this sport.  I will forward your email to him and ask that he contact you directly.  In the meantime, one of our contributors on this blog, John Olson, might well have some advice for you so I suggest that you check back to see if he or anyone else has a comment.
