This was an amazing experience, as you would expect. I was scheduled to be picked up around 10:00am, but Konrad texted me on WhatsApp letting me know that the wind was too strong and that it would have to be postponed until later in the day. It wasn't an issue though, as he kept in touch regularly, and eventually I was picked up in the afternoon. After the quick sign-in process, I was driven up to the take-off point by my 'instructor' where I was trained on what to do. Taking off is definitely the scariest part, but once you're in the air, it's a very peaceful feeling.

We were picked up from our hotel in Urca on time.
First we were taken to the beach to pay for registration and insurance.
Just be hopeful you don't need the insurance - it's worth jack, lol.

Then we were rushed into a waiting car and taken up to the take-off zone.
Once at the take-off zone we were unable to savour the moment.
Everything was rushed.
Very little time to take photographs or savour the moment.

The pre-flight instructions were rushed too.

The flight itself was incredible, hence the 4 stars.
Fantastic views all along the coast and felt safe at all times.

Once back at the beach, we had the opportunity to upgrade to the 2-angle video/photos option.
We watched a little of the video and upgraded.

Yes, I'd recommend it as it's an incredible experience.
It would've gotten 5 stars if we'd been allowed to savour the moment at the take-off zone.

The hang gliding was great. The experience with viator was not. We were charged extra fees when we got there. We waited over an hour for our connection to take us back to the hotel. I emailed viator about it on my return and got no response. My advice would be you there yourself and pay when you get there.
