One of only two islands in the Caribbean that are occupied by two separate countries, the Dominican Republic is probably best known for its breathtaking beach resorts. With its lush, natural beauty and a growing outdoor and eco-tourism industry, the island is the perfect destination for those seeking adventure off-the-beaten-path.

Like Daedalus and Icarus, flying is the ultimate way to take your adventure to new heights. The extreme sport of paragliding is a safe and exhilarating way to experience the beauty and diversity of the region from a lofty perch. Experienced pilots will outfit and direct you from takeoff to landing. You can take the ultimate selfie while flying amongst the clouds.

We really like this organization for paragliding in the Dominican Republic: http://www.flyindr.com/paragliding
