To carry out a bungee jump, we don’t need any special requirement, nor have any previous experience, is an activity that can be done by anyone, and that the only obligation is to be brave during the jump.

Also, to complete the activity, you can try goming-up, that is like a type of catapult built with elastic strips, that will make you fly and reach an approximate height of 25 or 30 meters and where a gravity sensation will be none.
Another alternative, near Granada, for the seasons it has restrictions to jump, is Gádor, in Almería. Here, you will have the opportunity of jumping from a height of 30 meters.
