My kids and I had never been parasailing before and I was hearing horror stories about people getting tangled in the chutes and having to be rescued and even innocent beach goers getting caught in the take ups so I was really careful about selecting the tour company. Paraiso doesn't set you up on the sand, they take you out... More

I had never parasailed before and figured it was about time on my last vacation to Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. My husband and I decided to go with Paraiso Watersports (recommended by our hotel) and we truly feel like we couldn't have chosen a better company! To be honest, I was kind of scared about being that high up in... More

We had so much fun!!! If you are not an avid surfer but want the feeling of being control of your board in the water, you will probably love this also! Brian specifically was so great! I felt very safe and comfortable on this tour. We saw so many fish and just had fun paddling in the ocean!

I had never been para-sailing before but I have to say that I had a great time. I really liked the fact that we could launch right off of the back of the boat instead of having to run along the beach like the tour in Manuel Antonio. Brian and his crew took us all the way around the point... More

Dave and Paraiso Watersports offer an unforgettable, fun and safe parasailing experience! I was a little nervous, as it was my first time, but the crew (Brian & Mike) gave good instructions and took care of me and my partner from start to finish. After living in the area for a year, soaring above the Pacific was a special treat.... More

I had such an amazing time with these guys. I had never parasailed in my life and didn't know what to expect. What a pleasant surprise. It was so much fun, exciting, and peaceful all at the same time. The view is just breathtaking when you are high up and it feels like you are floating in the air. You... More
