Medellin is a city that lies within a deep valley and is surrounded by towering hills. The best way to see this beautiful landscape is from above, and that involves a parasail. For an inexpensive price you can book an either 20 or 30 minute flight over Medellin with an experienced pilot for a tandem ride. The view is incredible and should not be missed.
Tour companies will include pick up at your hostel in Medellin. They also provide GoPro's and you can buy the memory card for a souvenir. Alternatively, if you have transportation just ride to the take-off area and book yourself for a cheaper price.
