A hot air balloon ride over Punta Cana and Bavaro is the most amazing experience in the Dominican Republic. The one-hour ride will provide passengers with a whole new perspective of the impressive Punta Cana region. Balloon rides take place at sunrise, offering passengers unique breathtaking scenes.

During the ride, passengers will be able to enjoy the beauty of Punta Cana and nearby areas from a completely new perspective.

Enjoy an impressive view of the endless kilometers of sugar plantations, cattle-grazing land, nearby villages, and Higuey, the region’s most important city and provincial capital.
  • Fly over Punta Cana during this sunrise hot-air balloon ride
  • Ideal for celebrating a special occasion—finish with Champagne 
  • Unobstructed views of Punta Cana’s beaches and resorts from the air
  • Round-trip transport included with this Punta Cana hot-air balloon ride
What to Expect
Your Punta Cana tour begins with early pickup from your hotel. After a short safety briefing, climb into the basket of your hot air balloon, and take off.

Your pilot takes you up into the sky for a hot-air balloon ride over Punta Cana and Bavaro. Watch the sunrise as you float above the white sand beaches and resorts that line the Dominican coast. Then drift across the sky and enjoy 360-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, sugar cane fields, cattle-grazing land, and distant mountains.

Afterward, your pilot guides the hot-air balloon back to land. When you touch down, share a Champagne toast and a light breakfast, and then end your tour with hotel drop-off in Punta Cana.

I cannot recommend Dominican Balloons enough. The only downside is that it’s an early start (especially after white night 🙄😬 that was my fault though). You’ll be lifted at 5AM for a 6AM departure. We travelled in the balloon about 12-15 miles over beautiful countryside...More

I can't see it being an issue... only problem might be the landing as you really need to be stable. The staff are excellent so I'd just shoot them a message... it's an amazing trip!
