One of the best flying sites in Mexico (and probably in the world). During the months of December to May the conditions allow for flights on the 100's km order, with cloud bases of 4,500 plus meters msl.
330 flyable days from November to June 99% every day flyable.

From February to the beginning of the rain season the conditions get stronger, with rough air and strong winds almost all day.
During the rain season conditions are mellow, but there is risk of fast overdeveloping, with strong thunderstorms.
The launch was expanded on 2008 by the government of the Estado de Mexico as part of the improvements for the Mexico 2009 Paragliding World Championship.
Nice slope and ok for no wind takeoff in the morning and late afternoon.
The official landing is a big grass field 2.5km in front of the launch. Height difference 600m.
Landing during the day is turbulent due to termic activity.
Very safe landing for begginers in the morning and in the afternoon.
Afternoon wind normaly blowes from the right (W,NW)

APPI certifications awarded to a pilot is internal to the APPI system, and shows no particular right in the country where the activity is done, unless APPI is recognized by the legal authority managing free flight in that country. Your paragliding activity must comply with the laws of the country in which it is performed. Check with the local federation if such an agreement exists. In some countries, APPI is the official education system.
