Amazing experience

I had a great time paragliding with Christian. Price is about the same than other companies but service is exceptional and professional. Would recommend to anyone.

We went paragliding with Christian and it was simply amazing! Christian was extremly friendly and professionel, he really knows what he is doing and you feel safe the whole time. And besides the paragliding itself it was a joy meeting him and his wife, they are just full of positive energy! It is worth every penny and an unforgettable experience... More

Paragliding with Real World Paragliding was beyond amazing. The whole experience was exhilarating. Christian, the pilot who I did my flight with was an absolute pleasure. He was professional and lighthearted while making the entire flight and preparation very comforting. If you are in Panajachel there might not be a better activity to do. Don't worry if heights freak you... More

I wanted to go Paragliding already for long time, but never did it. Decided to to it hear, because hear it is affordable and you really get a lot for your money! It started with Stefanie in the office, which gave me a perfect idea about how the day will look like and what to bring. The journey starts at... More

OK first off Christian and Realworld Paragliding has and will always be the best in Panajachel. So me and my better half talked to Christian in advance to our trip about flying the skies over Pana. We got there one day and ran into a Travel place on the main strip about 100 meters from Realworld on the opposite side... More

This is definitely a must do activity on the Lake and Realworld Paragliding is the only company to use. The staff was very friendly and really cared about the customer safety. Christian was my pilot and did a great job at explaining the ins and out of flying. It's clear that the staff has a love for flying. The weather... More

I did it through real world paragliding. Christian was amazing. The weather sucked but he still tried his best and drove me up the mountain to see. He is so friendly. Most enthusiastic person i have met in my life. Didn't charge me anything but took me on a drive and told me all about the sport. We picked avocados... More

We booked the Paraglinding through Marios Tours on the Main road, not sure of the company that we had this experience through. We tried real world but when when we went to their shop it was closed. Our paragliding instructors were Sals and Hector, although our Spanish was limited and their English much the same we managed to get an... More
