Paragliders over Miraflores in Lima, Peru 01 Aug 2017
About this photo
In Lima, steady winds coming in from the ocean, rising off the cliffs makes the beach front in Miraflores the perfect place to paraglide. Not only are the wind conditions reliable and suited to the sport, the landscape also lends itself to being seen from above; the vast beach backs on to a sheer cliff edge which is topped by lush grassland and high-rise buildings, creating an unusual contrast. Add a trip to Miraflores on Insight Guides' Peru Express trip and take flight with one of the cliffside outfits who will take you on a tandem high above the Pacific Ocean to look back on the varying view.
