Teotihuacán Hot Air Balloon Ride

The tour meets first thing in the morning, between 5 and 6 am, to make our way to the take-off point, to take our hot air balloon ride at the calmest moment of the morning. As we wait for the balloon to fill with air we'll enjoy a coffee or a snack to fuel up.

Having climbed aboard, and before we begin to float serenely through the air, our certified pilot will explain the details of the trip and some of the most important security measures, enabling you to enjoy the tour in total safety and to the maximum.

The balloon tour will last around an hour, and will fly over the Teotihuacan Valley, enjoying the best views of the most visited archaeological site in Mexico.

From the clouds, we'll get a unique perspective on the "City of the Gods" admiring wonders such as the Sun Pyramid, the Quetzalpápalotl Palace, the "Road of the Dead", "Pyramid of the Moon" and Quetzalcoatl Temple.

To end this fascinating experience, we'll follow worldwide tradition, with a toast and a full buffet breakfast, and all participants will receive a certificate to accredit them as certified hot-air-ballooners!

Afterwards, you will have around 2 hours to visit the Teothiuacán ruins at your own pace, and the tour returns to Mexico City around 2:30 pm.

Afterwards, you'll have two hours of free time to visit the Teotihuacán ruins at your own pace, with the tour returning to Mexico City around 2:30 pm.
