Latest Check-Ins

Very nice views, level spot, wifi at the restaurant and access to clean bathrooms. It can get loud at night because of trucks and neighbours. A neighbour had a party go on until 2am. We saw fireflies in the grass field facing the city. Decent Food at restaurant ranges from 13,000-15,000/plate. Meat with some fries and vegetables. We did paragliding for 15 minutes at 80,000. Overall, a good spot to stop at.

Great spot, still 20'000 COP, food at the restaurant is basic but good. The must : chilling out in the roof tent oriented to the view.

Amazing view, stayed for 7 nights but limited facilities which they advise you in advance. Oscar is indeed nice and offered the use of a shower at his house. Toilet can be used at restaurant.

Laundry 10k, parking per night 20k

They even included the take off fee for me as I came for paragliding. excellent place

Very nice place. Good for big rigs. Awesome view. Oscar is a very nice guy.

Super spot ! 20 000 cop par véhicule et par nuit avec électricité (rallonge fournie pendue à l’arbre), bon wifi (seulement sur la grande terrasse panoramique et alentour mais pas depuis votre véhicule), toilettes, douche froide. Chiens bienvenus. A l’ombre sur un espace privé spécialement pour les voyageurs, à vous de trouver un endroit plat sur la vaste étendue d’herbe. Incroyable vue de jour comme de nuit sur la ville de Bucaramanga. L’endroit est très calme, on se sent en sécurité, il y a 3 portails en métal fermés !
Accès pour tout type et taille de véhicules, tentes acceptés. Le portail ferme à 17h30, essayez d’arriver avant...
L’équipe est au top, Oscar et ses frères sont vraiment hospitaliers et généreux, souriants, s’intéressent à votre histoire de voyageurs. Accès au bar et restaurant avec encore une fois une superbe vue panoramique sur la ville, bières à 3000 cop, les plats ont un bon rapport qualité prix.
Vous pouvez voler en parapente en tandem pour 80 000 cop (de 15 à 20 minutes) + 20 000 cop si vous voulez être filmés et photographiés en vol (2 minutes de vidéo et environ 25 photos). Très bonne expérience !
On recommande l’endroit, aucune hésitation à avoir 👍

Nice view. The toilet for the camping was not working so he said to use the restaurant's and that they were all family.
Went to the bathroom, no toilet paper, I asked for it, they wanted to charge me so I called Oscar. He said it is that way so I could leave if I wanted. It did not feel right. Next day he apologized.

Óscar is very nice. The view is amazing. The camping area is big so you can find a few mostly level spots. Bus to the center passes right by here every half hour. The bathrooms were pretty disgusting when we were there.

Amazing view! 20k per couple and a truck camper

Voladero de Aguilas is the true name. Oscar is super nice! $20,000COP the night. Beautiful views!

Yes this a nice place. Everything is like said before.

Really nice place! Incredible view over the city.
20000p/n
Cold shower and toillet.
Could wash 10000p/maschine
Nice owner!

The driveway is angled so it's best reached coming up. We passed it and had to go back down the road and back up to get in. Charged us 10,000CO pp. As mentioned, great views. Clean bathroom with seat, no TP. The lady in the house by the gate, Patricia, will do laundry for 10k a load.

Sloping site next to landing field. OK for a couple of trucks with leveling chocks.
Read it was quiet but found it not so. Road next to site steep with quite a bit of bus traffic.
Owners very pleasant.

Very quiet and tranquil spot. Amazing view of the city and we greatly enjoyed watching the paragliders. Clean toilet and cold shower. You can get wifi under the main building. Great temperature at night.

Comfortable spot on a grassy field with a great skyline view of the city and of the paragliders. Friendly family owned business. Paid 20,000 pesos which included use of bathroom, shower, wifi and electricity.

Endroit idéal pour voler nous y sommes rester plus de 10 jours 20000col par nuit les propriétaires sont super sympas, possibilite d'aller a Bucaramanga en bus

Exactement comme decrit par les precedents overlanders. Fait une lessive pour 10'000 pesos. Resto ok. Saut parapente 80'000. Parfait endroit ou nous sommes reste 4 jours

20000 par nuit pour notre camping-car (7metres). Très bon accueil, très belle vue sur la ville. Douches sommaires mais bienvenues, wc, eau disponible, wifi 24h mais au restaurant uniquement. Possibilité de raccord électrique et prises à dispo au restaurant/ réception. Les propriétaires nous ont très gentiment prêté leur machine pour faire nos lessives. Après avoir regardé les parapentistes décoller toute la journée, on a décidé de rester pour faire un vol en tandem le lendemain.

All the same, but now they charge 20 000 Cop/RV/2 people. Nice owners, nice place, cold showers, WiFi.

Nice place for a paragliding flight! There are basic bathrooms and cold showers.
30min paragliding flight costs 150 COP. Really beautiful view over the city.

buen lugar para pasar un par de días, excelente vista!

NO TENTS! A nice grassy area next to the launching field of the parapentes with an incredible view over the city. The friendly owner allowed us to camp in our tent if we promised to change the info in iOverlander to inform others that you cannot camp in your tent here, because they worry they cannot offer a secure place with all the daytourists that come to watch the view. Campers, RVs, trucks etc are still very welcome. 10.000 cop, cold shower, wifi and great view!

Paid 10 cop. Nice people and a lifesaver as we arrived after dark. They are trying to turn the area into more of a camping zone for travelers. Bathrooms, showers and wifi. The owner told us not to leave anything out because the dogs like to chew on things. Dogs are friendly though.

Yes,this is a place you should visit too. it,s a paragliding areal. Very nice owner family. There is space for tents, bigger RV,s and there are cabanas, every body is welcom. if you like it,you can make a tandem flight for smal money. :-))

Parking lot next to the paragliding club Ruitoque. Really nice and quiet, great view, easy access to the city if needed, extremely friendly people. On the weekend they have hot meals and we had a really delicious stake, one of the best we have tried in Colombia.

Super endroit calme avec une vue magnifique sur la ville. 10k pesos par nuit. Nous sommes finalement restes 3 nuits et avons fait du parapente. Les proprietaires sont tres sympas.

On left hand side as you drive up curvy steep road. They have 4 dogs that thankfully got along with mine. Restaurant on weekends. Great view! Great family!

Large parking area next to the paragliding launch site. 20k cp. Nice place, nice owners, bathrooms, showers, Internet and cheap paragliding... Great view over Bucaramanga.
