I just wanted to share my last adrenalinic experience in Playa del Carmen! I just jumped from a plane and did some Skydiving in Playa del Carmen!!!
I’m adding the video below so you can see it, this is just an amazing experience you should all do if you like adventure or adrenaline.
I’m also adding some stills taken from the video so you can see them as a photo.
The experience is so amazing that I don’t even know how to describe it, first you enter a little airplane at the Playacar airport just a side of Playa del Carmen.
Then you take off, there are 5 people in the airplane, the pilot, and two student jumpers with their instructors, that’s me and my friend. The ride to the top is about 15-20 minutes, time enough to relax and enjoy the views from the airplane which are great, then when you get to 3,000 meters or 10,000 feet you are ready to jump.
They already explained what you have to do in the ground so now you are ready to jump off the plane.
You jump and feel a little vacuum in your stomach, I don’t really know how to explain it.
You freefall for about 1 minute, this experience is unique, you can reach up to 220 Km/Hr and you can only hear the wind going thru your ears.
Then, the instructor opens the parachute and you descend for about 5 minutes safely to the ground enjoying great views of Playa del Carmen and Cozumel just next door.
The landing is really smooth actually, you just have to lift your legs and they do everything for you.
Totally recommend to do this adventure tour in Playa del Carmen. AMAZING!
