Teotihuacán from above
Imagine taking a sunrise balloon ride with your sweetheart or a group of close friends, viewing the majestic silhouettes in the distance or the nopal and prickly pear crops, which have stood for generations as witnesses to one of Mexico’s most iconic landmarks.
Teotihuacán’s archaeological site is one of Mesoamerica’s most intriguing and fascinating multiethnic metropolis.
The proper name is of Nahuatl origin and means “Place where men become gods” it was given by the Mexicas to identify this city built by a civilization before them that was already in ruins when the Mexica first saw it.
You can take this experience by driving in your own vehicle to the previously agreed meeting point one hour before the flight or if you wish it can include transportation from Mexico City, arriving directly at the take-off area where you will be received with a small coffee break.
There you will register and be assigned a balloon where the pilot will give you further instructions.
The flight will last between 45 to 60 minutes, all depending on the weather conditions on the day of your flight.
There are numerous ways to participate in this magical experience, including shared trips, private trips and VIP experiences, some include souvenirs, canapés, champagne, and private visits to ceremonial caverns and the archaeological site. You can choose the option that best meets your budget.
If you arrive by automobile, the area offers a variety of activities to fill your day, such as visiting the Reino Animal natural park, the Teotihuacán cactus garden, or having lunch at the well-known La Gruta restaurant.
One thing is certain: a hot air balloon ride above one of Mexico’s ancient sites is an exciting way to experience one of the country’s archeological wonders.
