Hot Air Ballooning in Costa Rica

A once-in-a-lifetime adventure! Soar like an eagle over the Costa Rican cloud forest canopy. If you journey into North Central Costa Rica, you have the opportunity to go hot air ballooning. Only 20 miles east of the Arenal Volcano, Serendipity Adventures lifts visitors to the sky. Your flighted tour, which lasts between 45 minutes and 2 hours (average is 75 minutes), offers sights relished by very few people.

See monkeys, birds and iguanas from on high. Take a spectacular look at a puffing volcano. Feel a tropical breeze in your face as you peer down at rolling green treetops. Dip to follow the soft curve of a river amid swirling birdsong. Take pictures of it all!
