Enjoy early morning pickup at your hotel in Monterrey. Board a comfortable minivan and travel roughly 40 minutes outside the city toward Allende, arriving at the launch field in time to see your balloon being inflated.
Listen to a safety briefing, then step inside the balloon's basket and take off with your pilot at the helm. Float up to 1,000 to 5,000 feet (300 to 1,520 meters) for aerial views of Nuevo León, the Sierra Madre Oriental and beyond. Look closely and you may see a mule deer or puma darting through the trees in the early morning light. You may see Cerro de la Silla Tía Liberata mountain or Las Cruces River, all landmarks used for aerial navigation.
Your sky-high travels will last between 35 and 40 minutes, depending on the day's conditions. Upon touchdown, sip some sparkling wine and toast to your successful adventure. Board your minivan for the short trip back to your Monterrey hotel.
