Spend an unforgettable day discovering the ancient Mesoamerican city of Teotihuacán: fly over millennia-old pyramids in your own private hot air balloon!
Teotihuacán Private Hot Air Balloon Flight Itinerary
Meet your guide at the indicated time at the Angel of Independence monument (Ángel de la Independencia) in the heart of Mexico City. From there, you'll be taken on a shared vehicle to the takeoff area. Ready to experience one of the most exciting days of your life? While you wait for your hot air balloon to be prepared, enjoy a coffee to build your energy for your flight over one of Mexico's most famous archaeological sites.
Climb aboard your hot air balloon accompanied by an expert qualified pilot who will inform you of key safety procedures so you'll enjoy the hot air balloon experience as much as possible.
You'll be able to fly over the Teotihuacán Valley during 45 minutes or an hour, taking in the spectacular views over the archaeological site with a soundtrack of romantic music. The Avenue of the Dead, the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, the Pyramid of the Moon... you'll have ancient Mexico at your feet!
For the finishing touch on your hot air balloon flight, you'll be handed a glass of sparkling wine to toast to an unforgettable experience, as well as enjoying a delicious buffet breakfast. What's more, you'll be presented with a certificate demonstrating your flying experience - the perfect souvenir!
Back on solid ground, you'll have two hours of free time to explore Teotihuacán on foot at your own pace. You'll then be returned to Mexico City at 2:30 pm.
Dates and times are subject to modification based on weather conditions; if any changes have to be made, you'll be notified at least 12 hours in advance.
We recommend that you reserve your ride on the first day you have available, and this way if the weather conditions are not suitable for the flight, there is time to reschedule for another day.
