Uvita was our favorite place we visited in Costa Rica and this was our favorite tour by far because I'm not sure if we'll ever get a chance to do it again. If you're in the area, do yourself a favor and experience it....you'll never forget it! It's billed by 15 minute intervals so you can go for as little... More

My wife and I had a wonderful experience on our flights. We heartily recommend this tour. It is well worth the cost. The pilot was very competent and Juan Carlos answered all of our many questions. We truly enjoyed this aerial tour.

This is an absolute must-do for anyone traveling in the southern zone of Costa Rica. Located just outside of Uvita (south), Papa Kilo is a breath taking way to see the coast of this beautiful country in a way you can't get from just driving around in a vehicle. It is at the top of our to-do list when we... More

All of who are lucky enough to be able to take regular vacations know that there are a few things that stick out with each trip that are memorable. This one topped our last 10 day trip to Costa Rica. Truly amazing to watch the whales migrating from above where you can see the whole whale and her calf as... More

I booked a half hour flight along the coast. Not having done this sort if thing before and not having a great head for heights I was a tad nervous beforehand. None of this mattered as the flight is quite a gentle experience. The plane is a bit like a toboggan, with the passenger sitting in the back. Take off... More

I did this tour back earlier this year. We were just planning our next trip and planning to do this again, so I thought I should write a review (sorry Georg & Carlos) We were staying in Dominical and drove to the landing strip where we were met by Carlos. I decided that I was going to do the 40... More

You have no idea how beautiful this country is untill you experience an Ultralight tour. My flight was down the coast from Dominical to Coranado and Whale watching on the way back. Wow seeing the Humpbacks... More

Georg (pilot) and Carlos (apprentice) are the most friendly folks I have ever met. These guys love to fly. Georg has a passion for flying and Costa Rica and loves to share this excitement with you. Our group had gone ziplining with Osa Canopy Tours the day before and my wife has a bad wrist and couldn't join us, so... More

No words can describe the feeling of being a few hundred feet in the air taking in all the sights of beautiful southern Costa Rica. I took the 90 minute flight with pilot Georg($235 at the time) which took me from Uvita north over Dominical, up to Playa Matapalo, and then back. As you can see from my photo's, the... More
