Los Voladores de Papantla

Ventura flying through the sky with Los Voladores of Papantla in Puerto Vallarta

The Voladores, Totonac Indians, dressed in brilliantly coloured traditional costumes, climb up a 150 foot pole, tie their ankles to ropes wound around the pole and then jump off “flying” gracefully around and around as the ropes unwind until they reach the ground. As the voladores “fly” another performer balances at the top of the pole and plays haunting tunes on his wooden flute.
Breaking Cultural Boundaries in Puerto Vallarta, Ventura is the first non tribal member to do this.
