Caribbean: Hot Air Ballooning

Fun in da Sun wit lots'a Rum!

In 1995 the first Hot Air Balloon Festival in the Caribbean was created by Todd Challenger. And now hot air ballooning has taken off all over the Caribbean. You can visit at any time of year and have the chance to experience the oldest form of manned flight. If you visit Antigua between the last week of November and the first week of December you will be able to feast your eyes on an array of colours as hundreds of hot air balloons participate in the International Hot Air Balloon Festival every year.
