Hot Air Balloons in Mexico


Did you know that in Mexico there is a big tradition relating hot air balloons?  This experience began several years ago as a very particular niche and nowadays there are festivals and opportunities in many places to have an experience like this. This time, it is turn to Tequisquiapan to invite you to celebrate in “Fiesta en el Aire” a party to pay homage to this great invention that once was used to travel and now it is used for leisure.


It is known that the Hot Air Balloon was invented in Brazil, but the credit has always belonged to Montgolfier brothers in France. This invention was presented in Palais du Versailles and made everybody feel speechless.


This invention works with gas that warms up the air that gets caught inside the fabric that conforms the balloon, and as more hot air gathers inside, higher it will get.

The original shape of the balloon has changed thru time, and nowadays we can even find balloons in many different shapes, sizes and colors. This is something worth to see.


Back in Mexico, history of hot air balloons starts in 1982 in Tequisquiapan, where this tradition flew to other cities like San Miguel de Allende and Teotihuacan. Today this little town full of enchantment invites you to the balloon festival calles “fiesta en el aire” or party in the air, an event that will fill its natal city with activities and things to do and see and of course, the opportunity to fly in one of this marvels. On December 13th and 14th 2019 Tequisquiapan will be waiting for you to be part of this event.
