Trips are easy from Tamarindo.

David "Clem" Major

proprietor pilot instructor

David “Clem” Major was introduced to me by my best friends Andre and Lisa Vander. Clem, Lisa, and Andre were fellow pilots in California and originally hoped to open the business together. Andre and Lisa came early to scout the landscape and settled in the Tamarindo area with their young family. When Clem came a few years later the Vanders were ensconced in Villa Real with their son in local schools. In addition conditions in the Tamarindo area were not suitable due to  lack of suitable local runways and wind conditions. So Clem found a suitable location in beautiful Aranjuez Puntarenas an hour or so south of Tamarindo. Clem was a well known Hollywood aerial cinematographer stunt man and pilot and definitely  looks the part. He is a seasoned pilot and sky dive instructor with awards and accolades  that decorate his hangar from all over the world. Clem was so well known and respected in the industry that he was tapped by president Bush’s team and on the jump when Bush made his epic sky dive in his 90s

Clem (the owner) is one of the most skilled skydivers in the world. He has literally done it all & decided to settle... down in Costa Rica. Whether you are a tandem student or experienced skydiver, if you get the opportunity to skydive with him or his staff, you are lucky.read more

On behalf of my family (sister, brother, boyfriend), I want to say this was by far the best experience we had in Costa... Rica. Thank you Mike and Glen for being so awesome throughout the entire experience and making something so terrifying into one of the most blissful experience of my life. I highly recommend Skydive Pura Vida if you are hoping to do Sky Diving for the first or 100th time, as the service provided by them was nothing short of amazing. Thank you again for making our second last day in Costa Rica one to remember. Dhar.read more

I had a great time skydiving with the instructor Clem yesterday. I'm a beginner skydiver myself and he gave me lots of... great advice to improve my skydiving. He also had rental equipment in good condition for skydivers. I highly recommend this dropzone!read more

Had a blast jumping out of the plane over by the beautiful gulf created by the Nicoya Peninsula!You get a birds eye... view of Puntarenas while climbing and David, the man who owns the plane, is the best guy to jump out of a plane with overall!I definitely recommend checking out this team if you are considering jumping out of a plane any time soon!read more
