Description


We are located 30 min. from Tikal National Park and Lake Peten Itzá. Our means for taking off is a stationary winch system with  2,700 foot long cable. Peten Itzá (look for pictures of this and other strips), and is a small 900 meters long strip with a 100 feet tall slope on its base, in the vicinity of the lake of the same name. We have done the most new stile of "hill towing" J from there, and also top landing.

there is a 900 meters long strip with a 100 feet tall slope on its base, in the vicinity of the lake of the same name.

30 minutes away, from Tikal National Park we have our main central site, a mile long strip actually under development called El Caoba.  Thermal soaring conditions in this area looks really promising.
The third site is located an hour and a half away in Belize, near the border with Guatemala. It is called Maya Flats, and is a trike grass strip with a length of nearly a mile. The Stationary winch has left us up to 2,500 feet high, and thermaled up to cloud base. Cloud streets are seen pretty often and cloud base varies during the year, but it is mostly several thousand feet high. We just started hang gliding in the area and are discovering.
