Mexicali is known for its sunny weather, its beautiful sunrises, and sunsets, however, few people know that there are aerial activities that can be done in the city. If you are one of those who like to have different experiences, the magic of getting on a hot air balloon, jumping from a parachute, or getting on a microlight, is the ideal activity for you.
Hot air ballooning is a recommended activity at dawn or dusk because the flow of the wind is required to be adequate since the balloon is guided by its direction and strength, it moves wonderfully and differently to be able to know our surroundings, in addition to to be able to take incredible photographs for our social networks.
Another of the activities that we talked about is parachute jumping, a sport that consists of jumping from a plane at an elevation of approximately 12 thousand feet, when falling, after a while, a parachute is deployed to fly safely to the ground, it is a unique experience because we add the free fall with the magic of the landscapes that the region offers.
In the same way, we can have the experience of flying in ultralights, these are small sports planes, they are between free flight (hang gliding) and motorized flight (small planes), the flights are made at a height of 150 to 200 meters with a built-in parachute. In addition, other branches of the tourism sector benefit from this type of activity such as transportation, culinary area, and local hotels.
