Hang gliding or paragliding? Which to choose?
Paragliding and hang gliding flights. There is also an option to choose between hang gliding or paragliding. For this, you must understand that both are excellent options, but that paragliding is usually a little more radical - since it flies faster. Hang Gliding, in turn, is slower and ideal for those who just want to enjoy the local look calmly.
