The company picked us up directly from the hotel without any extra charge. All of the staff with whom we interacted spoke great English. Our daughters were given explicit instructions on use and safety. We were comfortable with them being out on their own in the water. A bit more expensive than we've paid in previous places, but it was... More

We went to the beach and spent the day relaxing. We noticed this company offering parasailing. They were very busy. Having never done it before, my wife and I were a little nervous, but when we saw how professional and caring the staff was, we reserved for a later date. We were the first of the day. WOW, what a...

On a recent trip to Costa Rica, myself and the other 5 I was travelling with decided to try Parasailing. My brother had already tried it in Mexico and assured us that we would love it. I, on the other hand, was not so sure, lol. My hubby and I were the first ones picked to go and so we... More

We enjoyed our tandem ride up above the water and seeing the surrounding sites, but the staff member who helped us put our straps on and gave us instructions was so rude and impatient that it kind of ruined our trip. The guy who sold us the tickets was nice, but I'd just suggest the people who own this business... More

Most importantly, I want to apologize that you had this experience.  Whether it was with us or this is a mistaken review and it was with another company, how you were treated and spoken to based on your description here is completely unacceptable and never should have happened.  In the 10 years that we have had our business, I’ve been told many...

They met us up the road and gave us a great parking spot. Then an exciting time over the ocean with fabulous views. Got an excellent package deal with the banana boat ride. Absolutely hysterical ride with thoughtful employees to help drag us back out of the ocean and back on the banana. Laughed our selves silly. Wonderful time!

We have parasailed in Playa Del Carmen (Mayan Riviera), Ixtapa, Puerta Vallarta, and with this group. Parasailing is an awesome activity, but for the price Aguas Azules could really improve on things. For similar amount of time in the air (approximately 10 minutes) it would cost fifty US dollars in Puerta Vallarta and the Mayan. And only twenty dollars in... More

Manuel Antonio is hands down the best place to go parasailing, for its amazing view of the beach and park below. We were able to get a lowered rate plus our deposit back PLUS a student discount for 3 of us. We were treated well from the beginning. Our driver picked us up from our hostal and took us right...

My husband and I enjoyed a full beach day with Aguas Azules. We started our day parasailing. What an amazing experience! Relaxing, thrilling, overall a great time.

I came to Manuel Antonio and wanted to spend some time in, and over, the beach and we chose Aguas Azules to do our parasailing with. From start to finish I was treated fairly, educated about what to expect, all dealings were professional and I always felt totally safe and attended to. Parasailing is both a thrilling and calm/relaxing experience.... More
