Costa Rica: Hot Air Ballooning

Where the sun always shines

Ballooning is offered in the San Carlos area, 20 miles east of Arenal. Half-day expeditions typically end around 9:30 a.m. Groups of up to five people can charter whole day adventures which include breakfast, lunch, round-trip transfer to and from most hotels in the La Fortuna area, and best of all, the exclusive use of the hot air balloon. In ideal weather conditions, guests can witness the brilliant eruptions of Arenal Volcano above the clouds.
