Go for it!
How fabulous that you challenged yourselves and succeeded! Amazing adventures that many of us oldsters in the TB community might have done in our youth (and now miss) and are now enjoying it through you! I used to love jumping off high places into small bodies of water--no more. Pretty funny that big smile on P's face after the paraglide even though she says she may not do it again--now, I have to do it there! Also love that visit to charming Burichara. I can imagine lingering in beautiful San Gil for a bit.

Paragliding was amazing...we'll for Chris anyway. The views of the area were amazing. San Gil and Burichara are definitely recommended, such a relaxed vibe to them.
