    The favorite Magical Town to fly

    The state of Tlaxcala is a place that continues to amaze tourists who visit it, because despite being a small state located one hour and 46 minutes from Mexico City, there are still interesting things found to do in Tlaxcala.

    Within Tlaxcala is the Magical Town of Huamantla, known for its gastronomy, festivities and traditions. You will be in for a great surprise since you can go up into the clear sky and have a panoramic view of the volcanoes in the area, such as Iztaccíhuatl, the spectacular Popocatépetl, Pico de Orizaba, all surrounded by rivers and mountains, making it a unique show in the Magical Town of Huamantla.

    The main reason why the balloon flight in Tlaxcala is our first recommendation, is because it has the advantage of being available practically all year round and open from Monday to Sunday. The trip lasts a total of three hours, departing from the balloon port in the center of Huamantla. Keep in mind that the regular hours are from 6:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
    Make the most of your trip and do not forget to visit Parque Nacional La Malinche and enter the Sanctuary of the Fireflies. Another attraction we recommend that you should not miss.

    Make your dream of flying come true

    Guadalajara has given the world delicacies like tequila, sweets and Mexican folklore; it is also the host of one of the most impressive balloon rides. It all begins in Amatitlán, a municipality in the state of Jalisco that claims to be the one with the best view from the heights. An agave landscape that everyone loves without exception, if seeing it on ground level is already beautiful, just imagine what it would look like from the sky.

    Unlike other destinations that offer the balloon experience, here the starting time depends on the sunrise and varies during season, the time is within the range of 06:00 and 07:00 am.

    The best thing about the trip is that it begins with a traditional toast and then the hot air begins to raise the balloon that will take you on an unforgettable trip, surrounded by the fascinating charms of Jalisco.

    The adventure in this place is only available in the months of October, November and December, with a duration of one hour each flight. Conclude the tour with a landing ceremony and take the opportunity to visit the tequila factories in Jalisco. Feels like a good idea, right?
