Basic Tour Overview

Autumn and Winter are great to spend in Valle de Bravo. We have perfect flying conditions and El Peñón is one of the most consistent sites in the world. El Peñón is flyable every day and the wind direction is always good. If you want to escape the cold winter and experience a week of great flying, then you should book our tailored hang gliding tours. Our tours run from November through March. It doesn’t matter if you are Hang Two, or an advanced pilot, you will make the most of this site. You will do air time, do small or big tasks or go XC. Or if you just want to learn to fly, then you can come any time of the year! You can also enjoy the good food, the beer and great vibes at the landing area, where you can share your experience with the rest of the pilots that visit us from all over the world. After flying, Valle de Bravo’s town is worth visiting and walking through its cobbled-stoned alleys, eating its delicious food, and it’s not expensive.

See What Our Satisfied Guests Have Said

  • Word of mouth! Vuelo Libre/Free Flight "Rudy" was highly recommend by my local hang glide community in Florida, and he exceeded all expectations. Rudy and his team run a professional, friendly and safe hang glide tour business that will get you flying high in Valle de Bravo for all levels. My friend and I booked a week tour, and all I can say is that we are already heading back a second time around.

    1. good supervision
    2. gliders in new condition (at the time)
    3. they catered to our needs at all time whether we were flying or not

    Rudy is a legend in the hang glide world (starting flying at 14 years old or younger) and also is a great instructor. Rudy and his team made sure we got the proper training/supervision since we normally fly aero-tow.

    Thank you so much Rudy, Clutch, Pony, and the rest of the team!

  • Highly highly recommend. Even if you don’t speak Spanish like me, no worries, Rudy speaks great English! He took care of me so well from the reservation through the end of the flight and even after the flight!! Rudy is such an experienced pilot. He’s been flying for over 40 years wow. He kindly explained to me how to manage the handle and how to go up high. Also, Rudy and Eric made sure that I got my videos taken during the flight. I would totally totally fly with this crew again if I come back to Mexico!! Hang gliding itself was so much fun and I felt so free like a bird haha. Everything was great! I got dizzy towards the end then had to throw up afterwards because I didn’t eat anything before the flight and my sleep schedule was messed up since I’ve been on a trip. Regardless, this was GREAT and I’d totally do it again. Plus, they seriously took care of me so well😭😭 I’m so so glad I made this last minute decision to experience the hang-gliding with Vuelo Libre!! If you have a chance to come to Valle de Bravo or even Mexico City, it is, truthfully, a worthwhile experience! DO IT WITH VUELO BRAVO!!! Muchas muchas gracias por tu ayudas❤️❤️

  • 5 star ratingSoar with the eagles! The team at Vuelo Libre was fantastic. They were professional and knowledgeable. They gave us specific instruction, and made us feel very confident in our selection of them as our flight company. Erik del Rincon, my pilot, was very personable and even allowed me to take the controls and fly! And, my son Micah (22 years old, flew high enough that there were Eagles soaring beneath him at times! The experience was amazing!

  • 5 star ratingGreat week of flying! Seven of us traveled from as far away as Alaska to fly with Rudy and his team in Valle de Bravo, Mexico.
    The visit was a week long and his team took great care of us.
    We flew every day, and usually for as long as we wanted.
    Landed in the Piano LZ for drinks and tacos afterwards.
    It was a great time with old and new friends.
    I cannot say enough great things about the experience.
    Thanks for the awesome time Rudy and team!

    We will be back!
