Lastima de propaganda, desorganización total, no vayan !!!
Nov 2019
Bastante desorganizado, mucha propaganda por lo que llega mucha gente y no organizan a los camiones por lo que se hace un caos vial, fui en mi coche particular con mi novio tardamos más de 40 minutos para pasar os camiones que se ponen a bajar pasaje y la gente baja sus pertenencias tardan mucho y generan caos, no se encuentra estacionamiento, es muy caro, no hay baños cerca, las casas abren sus baños particulares y las filas son inmensas.

Si te perdiste el despegue de los globos por el caos vial (0 organización) mejor ni gastes tu boleto porque no hay nada que hacer en el parque, puro artista de los expulsados de operación triunfo y la academia, cantan pal perro, no hay actividades por hacer dentro del parque y la comida de mala calidad y carísima.

Deberían poner camiones que lleven al centro de León para aprovechar mínimo el tiempo y comprar algo de piel, de las 8am a las 6pm no hay absolutamente nada que hacer en el lugar, no te puedes subir a los globos porque ya no hay globos, ni tomar fotos porque no hay.

A las 7pm cuando oscurece comienzan otra vez a inflar globos y solo los prenden y eso es todo no tiene nada de espectacular, todos se conglomeran, los souvenirs carísimos y no se dan a basto para atender a tanta gente, tienes que volver a comprar boleto si sales para no aburrirte y quieres ir a dar una vuelta al centro, no hay taxis ni ubers porque esta en las orillas de la ciudad.

En la noche es cuando finalizan con el concierto de alguien que vale la pena, a esa hora comienzan a entrar muchos locales con alcohol y productos nocivos para la salud, no hay seguridad, puedes meter de todo, los policías no se dan a basto para la cantidad de gente que entra.

No es un lugar seguro, preferimos huir del lugar antes de que el ambiente se pusiera pesado y se volviera a hacer caos para salir por el trafico.

Reserva mucho antes ya que los hoteles suben los precios al cielo y no hay ninguno disponible.

En General no lo recomiendo, las fotos que suben con mucho fotoshop nada de lo que esperaba

Fest Del Globo
Nov 2019
Este festival del globo se realiza en la ciudad de León Guanajuato y es un evento internacional ya que llegan turistas de diferentes partes del mundo, es una experiencia maravillosa ya que disfrutas desde el primer momento en que tú llegas al lugar.
En total son más de 200 globos que volarán por los aires durante 4 días, todo comienza a partir de las 6:30 horas con el inflado de los globos y los primeros vuelos. Entre las actividades que puedes disfrutar, se encuentran: una noche mágica en la que figuras iluminados harán de tu velada un momento inolvidable, presentaciones musicales de artistas internacionales, un zeppelin show, cursos, talleres, presentaciones y exposiciones culturales, entre otras sorpresas.
Dentro de las locaciones encuentras diferentes stands donde puedes disfrutar de la gastronomía.
El clima en estos tiempo es muy frío al comenzar el festival, yo te recomiendo ir bien abrigado para que disfrutes del maravilloso show, utiliza ropa cómoda y calzado cómodo.
