My wife and I heard about this before our trip to La Paz, and although we’ve never tried anything like this before we decided to take a chance and give it a try. We are definitely glad we did.

Upon arrival to the 17th floor of the hotel presidente we were welcomed by the very friendly guys at Urban Rush. These guys are not only friendly, but it’s clear safety is their top priority. We were given multiple opportunities to get comfortable with rappelling on their mini practice wall, and at no time did we feel rushed to stop our practice attempts. The entire staff was also very encouraging, and kind, taking time to both correct our mistakes and praise our successes.

Once we felt ready, the safety procedures were explained one final time, and we were clipped in one at a time, and off we went.

We opted for the face first option, which we initially did not think we had the guts to try, but the relaxed atmosphere that these guys created made us change our minds. Plus the free fall option is only available if you go face first.

The hardest part (if you are fearful of heights or at all uncertain) is getting your brain to come to grips with the fact that you are leaning out the window on the 17th floor. However, because the safety and equipment was explained so completely you can easily get past this.

Once out the window it is AMAZING to see La Paz from such a unique perspective, as you hop down the building for about 25 meters. From there you get to enjoy a free fall of an equal distance before you are safely lowered onto the mat at the bottom.

I almost backed out in the hotel lobby but am very happy that I did this, and am actually interested in doing this again later in the week if time permits. For those who are wondering about the price it’s 25 USD per person for the first jump, but please consider tipping since these guys go out of their way to give you a truly one of a kind experience!

Me and my wife did this for her birthday. We had a great time, an amazing experience. The guys there are very helpful and friendly. Only reason this didn't get 5 stars is they only posted photos of my wife doing the reppel and not myself!? Would still highly recommend just make sure they take photos as I suspect they forgot.

Great experience rappelling with urban rush! The urban rush crew were excellent and really put us at ease before you step to the edge and look down 16 stories 🙈 It was a great buzz rappelling down the side of a building and the free fall part was a real adrenaline rush! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for an exciting, adrenaline filled activity!
