Frequently Asked

Do you have questions about what to expect during your hot air balloon adventure?

How do I make a reservation?

Your reservation is a phone call away. Please contact our Concierge to assist you. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Bank Transfers and Paypal to reserve your space. We require 48-hours notice for cancellation or schedule changes.

What should we wear and bring?

CAMERA! Wear casual clothing, preferably in layers so that you can adjust to the warming temperatures as the morning progresses. Ladies are most comfortable in trousers, because of the need to climb in and out of the basket. Flat-heeled, closed-toe shoes recommended. Some people like to wear a light hat or ball cap. Sun glasses or binoculars are optional.

Where do we fly and what do we see?

On most days, we launch from the historic surroundings in the heart of San Miguel de Allende –a quaint colonial village in the heart of Mexico. As we rise above the valley floor, panoramic views open up of the historical Colonial San Miguel de Allende. To the east the majestic mountain called "Los Picachos", to the south, the magnificent lake of San Miguel. With favorable winds aloft the balloons can climb to higher altitudes where we may catch a glimpse of the Mexico's Bajio central valley, skyline and even the majestic mines of the Sierras of Guanajuato to the east.

How does weather influence ballooning?

We are blessed in the San Miguel de Allende with nearly perfect conditions for hot air ballooning most of the year. Those conditions are calm surface winds, stable air currents and cool temperatures. Each year, on average, we are able to fly about 300 days. When you receive your confirmation of balloon flight, we will keep you advised with a current weather briefing if the climate is questionable. If we do have to cancel due to bad weather, there is of course no charge to you and we will make every feasible effort to reschedule you if you will be in the area for additional days.
