7 best places to skydive in Brazil
Skydiving is the ultimate way to discover Brazilian beauty…top down. Several locations blessed with blue skies most of the year offer this possibility to both experts and beginners (that want to learn or try a tandem skydive). If you are brave enough, check one of the 7 best places to enjoy this experience in the country:
1 – Boituva – This little city, 120 kilometers (75 miles) away from São Paulo, is the Mecca of Brazilian skydivers. Several companies dedicated to this sport operate locally, such as Skydive, Sky Company, Brasil Paraquedismo and Skydive thru. They share the locations at Centro Nacional de Paraquedismo (National Skydiving Center), the biggest skydiving facility in the country.
3 – Itaparica – Skydive offers the opportunity of parachuting over this beautiful island outside of Salvador, Bahia.
5 - Florianópolis – Vertical Speed operates in the Southern island, capital of the State of Santa Catarina. Hands down, one of the most beautiful places you will ever skydive.
7 – Manaus – Want to skydive over the Amazon? Try Aeroclube do Amazonas, right in the heart of the jungle.
For updated and detailed information, check the website of Confederação Brasileira de Paraquedismo (in Portuguese), the National Skydiving Federation. Also, try the Dropzone website’s list, which includes a few reviews in English of skydiving facilities in Brazil.
Enjoy the dive and come back to tell us how it went.
