My mom, my husband, my young daughter and I all took this amazing balloon ride in Costa Rica. Esteban, our pilot, gracious host and fast friend was exceptionally skilled and took us on an adventure we never could have anticipated.

My 14-year old daughter and I did the Serendipity hot air ballooning trip during our stay in La Fortuna - not Turrialba, as I don't think they do it out of Turrialba any longer. At first I was hesitant to spend the money but figured it was the chance to do something I'd never to again. We got up at... More

I've been flying balloons in Italy and the United States, and any balloon flight is special to me due to the unique characteristics of these lighter than air flights. But since my flights in Costa Rica, I have discovered two other aspects that intensely improve the overall flight experience. They're the country's facets and the pilot! The combination of Costa...
