Tick off two bucket list activities in one day trip from Mexico City. Visit Teotihuacan – the pre-Aztec City of the Gods – and get a feel for the scale of this ancient city and its incredible pyramids by hot air balloon, before walking the site itself.
At about 50km north east of Mexico City, Teotihuacan is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a city of great historical importance built over 2,000 years ago. We leave early in the morning to get to the pyramids for a dawn flight over the City of the Gods in a hot air balloon.
Your hot air balloon is perfect for 12 people, so if you’re in a group on vacation for a special occasion, this is a fantastic day trip to take. Following a light breakfast (and some mezcal for those afraid of heights!), we set sail above this ancient city in your very own hot air balloon. You will get some incredible shots of the most important monuments – the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon, and the Temple of Quetzacoatzl. Enjoy the views and the morning light for 40-50 minutes – a truly magical experience!
On landing, we treat you to a glass of champagne, a coffee and more to eat, before driving over to the site itself. You’ll have the opportunity to walk the site, exploring the magnificent structures with a guide who will reveal all the interesting stories of this mesoamerican city.
We recommend wearing layers and closed shoes for this trip, because it can be chilly in the early morning, and the sun is strong later in the day. Bring sunscreen and a hat if you plan to walk a lot, as there is very little shade in Teotihuacan. Transport to and from your accommodation in Mexico City is included.
