My First Skydiving Experience in Costa Brava

Since before I bungee jumped in Costa Rica in 2009, I’ve been dreaming of sky diving. It’s been on my to-do list for quite a long time, so I was very excited when I found out it was a planned activity on my itinerary for my recent press trip through Costa Brava in Spain. Empuriabrava is the largest skydiving center in Europe, so I thought to myself, “why not?”

My long-time friend and business partner, Carlos de Varona, accompanied me on what is definitely one of my top travel moments to date. We finally took the plunge and the rest is history. Here is my story of Skydiving in Costa Brava!
