What You Can Expect

Cancun Parasailing Adventure

Cancun Skyrider Parasailing Adventure

After a scenic boat ride out in the water, it's time to jump in the parasail and buckle up! The rope will slowly release, allowing you to soar further and further away from the boat. Travel between 200 and 350 feet (61 - 105 meters) above the turquoise waters and gaze down at famous landmarks such as Isla Mujeres, the Cancun hotel zone and the tropical jungle.

The lagoon option gives you the opportunity to soar high above the Nichupte waters and allows you to take in up-close views of the Cancun hotel zone, famous beaches and tropical jungle. One the other hand, the ocean option gives you the feeling of freedom as miles of water stretches before you. You'll also receive breathtaking views of Isla Mujeres and you'll be able to see the Cancun coastline in the distance.

With the option of either heading out over the ocean or the lagoon, there's nothing you won't see on this Cancun parasailing adventure!

The only parasail ever to be used by Disney World is now available for you in Cancun!

I had a great time. There was a bit of a hold up due to not having our printed vouchers but other than that it was a great bucket list experience.

Quiet take off and landing and the ride was smooth. Worth the ride over the Lagoon. Only minor point is that the photographer on the boat can inform us early (before starting the ride) on when to get ready for the snaps so we can be ready. Price of the snaps were higher than expected (compared to Xel-ha etc).

I would highly recommend this tour. The jet ski to the boat was almost more fun than the parasailing. The only drawback was being forced to leave a tip they were going to get a tip anyway they didn't need to be so forceful about it but don't let this put you off it was an excellent excursion.

My son and I boarded the boat and went out in the lagoon and stepped into the seat. It was a very gentle take off from the platform... not scary at all. We went up about 300 feet for about 30 minutes. What breath-taking views! The wench on the boat pulled us back where we gently landed on a platform. We never got wet. This was great!

Had so much fun! All three of us were able to go at the same time! The staff was VERY nice and made it fun for us! They took AMAZING pictures and the pictures were well worth $40USD. So glad I decided to buy the pictures. This is something we had been talking about doing for over a year and I am so happy that the staff made our parasailing adventure enjoyable! Thank you so much! I wish I would have gotten their names but we went on Sunday 6/17/12 around 3 pm!! We were a little late because we went to the wrong Fiesta Americana. That is my only complaint. They did not tell us there were 2 Fiesta Americanas! Both were 2 hotels down from our hotel Riu Cancun! Next time diga nos hay dos fiesta americanas! Gracias! :)
