What you'll do

1) You will book the activity online (parasailing at Sunscape Hotel, formerly Holiday Inn)
2) Take a taxi (FREE one-way, you will be reimbursed by the parasailing instructor) to Sunscape *BEACH ACCESS* (tell the driver "El

Oasi Del Holi Restaurant on the beach between the river & Venetia Condos"). If you choose instead to enter the Sunscape hotel itself, you will need to purchase a day pass (approx $80 USD) which gives you access to the restaurants, pool, & drinks (all-inclusive)
3) Once the taxi drops you off on the beach, turn left (south...turning right will be the river), walk 1-2 minutes & pass the two tall Venetia towers, & the next hotel will be Sunscape where the parasailing umbrella is on the beach
4) Give your name or confirmation # to the instructors operating the concession
5) Next, you will be equipped with a top of the line harness & life jacket, be given some simple instructions, & will take off from the beach & fly via parachute through the air (approx 10-15 minutes per person)
5) Once the ride is coming to an end, you will hear a whistle blow & will see the instructors waving a flag & you will then pull a cord to gently soar down. As you float down to the beach, the instructors will lightly catch you.
The view is unparalleled, you won’t get better photos than this anywhere else, guaranteed! It is an exhilarating experience that will be remembered for a lifeti

Welcome to Vallarta Parasailing! In the 60s, my uncle founded a parasailing company in Vallarta 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 in the late 1990s. 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, and safety is of utmost priority. 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 in front of Sunscape Hotel (formerly Holiday Inn) in Puerto Vallarta. *TAXI TO THE LOCATION IS FREE* - will be reimbursed upon arrival at parasailing concession.*
Come experience Vallarta from the Air! The best view in the city, guaranteed!

Reese was flexible in rescheduling my time. An excellent communicator. The crew who ran the parasailing were very skilled at making it easy. It was really fun but just a bit too brief.

So exhilarating, not scary or uncomfortable like I was worried it might be. My fiance was NOT stoked to go, as he doesn't feel the need to do adrenaline - junkie sports. But he says that as soon as he took off from the beach that he loved it, no regrets at all. It was an awesome experience!

This was such an amazing experience! This is my first time in Puerto Vallarta and I wanted to try this. I’m glad I did even though I’m afraid of heights. I’m definitely coming back the next time I visit Puerto Vallarta

A nice experience with awesome hosts. You are in the air by yourself (no tandem/instructor up in the air with you) and need to steer at the end to turn, and then leave the experts on the beach ‘catch’ you. The process is very well explained. The views are amazing and the flight time is just the right amount of long. Would recommend!

We loved parasailing it was different than I had don’t it before but it was sure a good experience! We left from the beach instead of going on a boat. Reese and his employees were very patient w/ us! We struggled to find the location and where to park! Reese and I stayed in communication which helped a lot! Would definitely recommend going parasailing with Reese! They were all so friendly and kind!
