Owner is sketchy - Told us to bring our gear even though DZ was not operational

Xielo Skydive Colombia - Cartagena de Indias Rated 1 by: SkydCanada on 2017-12-13

Pros: None
Cons: The runaway was not yet built... but they told us to bring our gear on a vacation

Hi all,
Xielo has two locations,
one is by Bogota and one is by cartagena.

The cartagena staff are amazing... but have not had an operation runaway in over 2 months..
Something the owner neglected to tell us. We had contacted her 1 week before our trip. she told us to bring our gear. She even told us it was totally safe to check our gear as she always does it to avoid security issues.

She did inform they were a tandem DZ and that we would have to go up with tandems, we were totally cool with that.

Once we land we get a message saying hey sorry to say the runaway has been damaged and is being repaired...

Ok that sucks.... but our hotels had us staying in the town of the DZ so we went out anyways.
We arrived and our hostel owner told us the runaway has been down for repairs for months, we then meet the DZ staff who are like ya they aren't even booking tandems they haven't been for a very long time.

We found out owner was just hoping that the runaway construction would be finished when we arrived.. (its completion date was december 22nd we were there december 9th)

ok so that really sucks... we get to the airport and they force us to check our bags, what ever... but then they ripped over my rig during transit at the cartagena airport.

Xielo owner and cartagena airport can not be trusted

THE place to be for skydiving in Colombis

Xielo Skydive Colombia - Cartagena de Indias Rated 5 by: AnVanEsser on 2017-07-31

Pros: Always great weather, good infrastructure and friendliest crew in South America
Cons: Plane takes off at the airport a 10min drive away but they are working on changing that

We jumped at Flandes (Bogota) so this review is for that DZ only. There are 4 DZ's at the airport, but Xielo is definitely the best place to jump at. Their landing area is a few kilometers from the aiport and a lot better maintained. They have great infrastructure (even a pool!), good restaurant and camping facilities. The crew is the friendliest we met in South America. They fly a grand caravan so go and have a great time!
