The pilots in Colima had some good things to say about the flying in Tapalpa. Only 2 hours from Colima, I thought it would be worth a trip. Tapalpa is one of Mexico’s many Pueblos Mágicos. The town is located at almost 2,000 m above sea level, and so at night it was quite cold. Coniferous forests and mountain pastures made for some beautiful scenery.
Flying here was a lot of fun. Though I wasn’t lucky enough to experience great weather conditions, I was able to fly half-way to San Marcos. Here I am at the northern Tapalpa take-off. What a pretty site to fly!
