How experienced are the instructors?

Our instructor is Unite States Parachute Association (USPA) qualified and has 12,500+ jumps, with over 39 years experience.

When will I jump?

After you have done your paperwork and ground training, your jump will be scheduled. The timing will depend on your arrival time, the weather, and the size of your group. Plan to spend up to 1-2 hours as it may take time.

How fast will I fall?

The average speed is 120 mph / 200 kmph !

How high will we go?

We jump from up to 12,000ft. Sometimes clouds or Air Traffic Control prohibit us from getting that high.

Can I breathe?

Yes, relax and breathe normally. There is lots of fresh air around you!

What does it feel like?

It’s impossible to describe, but it will be the most invigorating experience you have ever had. You don’t get the sinking stomach feeling that you do on roller coasters or amusement park rides- it really is unlike anything you’ve ever done.

Is it scary?

It is normal to be apprehensive about jumping from an airplane. The ride up is typically where most students feel the greatest anxiety but few jumpers report feeling anything but thrill once they’ve left that door!

SkyDiving With Friends

Can my friends come and watch?

Absolutely, they might even have a better view if they jump as well!

Can we all go together?

Each tandem jumper leaves the plane separately from other jumpers, except for their videographer, but you can ride the plane together (2 jumpers at a time) if the scheduling permits.

Where will we land our parachute?

Our landing area is right next to our Skydiving facility on the airport. Once you land your parachute you can walk right back into facility and you’re done. This also makes it ideal if you have friends and family coming out to watch you skydive. They can watch your entire experience all the way from gear-up to landing your parachute.

What types of payment do you accept?

We accept Cash(USD/CRC), Credit cards & Debit Cards .

How will I feel when the parachute opens?

You will definitely know something is happening, but few people have complained about any discomfort.

What if I have a disability?

You should be able to skydive with almost any type of disability. If you have any medical problems, please ask your doctor if skydiving is okay. Also, tell your instructor ahead of time of any issues, particularly if you have back or joint problems. If you have any physical disabilities that we are unsure of, we may require proof from your doctor that it is safe for you to skydive.

How To Prepare for Your Skydive

Do I have to make a reservation to go skydiving, and if so, how far in advance?

Please make the reservations 24 hrs prior to the booking date or call us if we can accommodate you, we will.

What should I wear?

You should dress in comfortable, weather appropriate clothing and wear shoes that will not fall off and don’t have hooks. No hiking boots, flip flops, or sandals.

What about my glasses/contacts?

We will supply goggles that can go over glasses if needed. Contacts are fine, just make sure that your instructor is aware of them so that you get appropriate goggles.

Is there a weight limit?

We take people up to 220lbs. However, there is a fee of $25 for everyone over 200 lbs.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you cancel more than 24 hours out, we charge you nothing and/or return your PayPal deposit. If you cancel within 24 hours, we will charge you 50% of the tandem jump unless we can fill your timeslot with a new reservation. This is possible as many days, we might have a waitlist. If you chicken out in the airplane, you will still be responsible for 100% of the jump; however, we will waive all video and still fees. We might even give you the video of you chickening out for free….

What can I see up there?

We will be flying over the beach and the ocean you will have beautiful views of the Nicoya Peninsula, Arenal Volcano and Monte Verde.

Can I get a refund?

Once you have paid, there are no refunds, but you can reschedule your jump for another day. We can make special exceptions for our friends who are traveling from foreign countries and on Vacations.

Should I tip my instructor?

Tips are always welcome and greatly appreciated. If you aren’t comfortable with cash, we always enjoy beer, wine, tequila… We save it for a rainy day, of course! The best tip is a great referral to friends and family and a great review on Trip Advisor!
