Teotihuacán Hot Air Balloon Ride

We'll meet at the scheduled time at the Independence Angel statue in Mexico City and make our way to the take-off point.

As we wait for the balloon to fill with air we'll enjoy a coffee or a snack to fuel up. We'll then climb into the basket and set off on a unique trip through the skies.

You'll fly over the Teotihuacan Valley and admire the best views of  the most visited archaeological site in Mexico. The flight will last between 30 minutes and 1 hour, depending on the weather on the day.

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 discover this incredible site.

But that's not all! We'll attend an artisan workshop to learn about Teotihuacan customs. We'll learn some of the uses of obsidian, the importance of the agave plant, how mead is fermented and how silver pieces are made. As the finishing touch to this special day, we'll enjoy a tasting of pulque, tequila, cactus liqueur, and mezcal. Cheers!

Lastly, we'll make our back, ending the tour in Mexico City after 8 hours of fun.

Important

The schedule may be subject to change due to weather conditions. In the event of any changes, you will be notified 12 hours in advance. We recommend booking your flight for the first possible day you're available. This way, if weather conditions are not optimal, we can reschedule it for another day. 

Also, please keep in mind that the route may change depending on the wind, and it is possible that on the day of the activity we won't be able to fly over the ruins of Teotihuacan.
