Paragliding is a very popular past time in Crucita. The thermals against the southern hills makes for excellent flying. A very nice launch site has been built, which includes a restaurant/bar. A platform on the cliff side makes for nice viewing if you decide not to try flying yourself. tandem rides are available VERY cheap at $35 USD transportation for 4 people is $60 dollars, larger groups will be $5 dollars by the hour a person.
Jocelyne a brave lady, she came from Canada to take a look at Ecuador and she showed paraglide can be done by anyone, so come to Crucita try it by yourself, it is completely safe.
