Jayuya Aerostatic Globe
Jayuya, Puerto Rico

The Jayuya Balloon is the main attraction of the Tierra Alta Agroturistic Project. To arrive, we do not recommend depending 100 percent on the GPS, since it usually takes secondary routes. It is better to orient yourself with a map and follow the signs that lead to the project, you can use the GPS as a reference. In addition, not all mobile carriers have a signal in the center of the island. Finally, some GPS suggest the section known as the "Sec La Cuesta", it is a fairly steep slope; we do not recommend this stretch unless you have an all-terrain vehicle.

After arriving at the main parking lot of the project, which is free, you pay $1 per person for local buses to transport you to the top of the mountain. The view of this tour is spectacular, as you can see at the beginning of our video. Then, the bus will leave you in a facility with a beautiful view, it has: The Hacienda Restaurant, a souvenir shop, restrooms and a food truck of ice-cream, shakes and fruit bowls. To reach the balloon, you have to climb the last section, you can do it on foot, if you are in a good physical condition, or you can use the local transport.

Depending on the weather conditions, the balloon takes flight. The factors they consider are rain, thunder, fog and wind speed. All these are safety measures, to avoid setbacks. The area has police and first aid personnel as a preventive measure. If the balloon is flying, you can buy the ticket; at an approximate cost of $19 per adult and $ 15 for children under 12 years. A very economical cost, when compared to similar attractions around the world. The balloon has the capacity to raise up to 30 people at a time and is adapted for people with disabilities. It is open from Monday to Sunday from 9 A.M. At 9 P.M. For more information you can contact the 787-223-6212 - Gift Shop or 787-223-5464 - balloon platform.

Very disappointed. I brought my son from Illinois (he only visits the island once a year) and all we wanted was to board the balloon. We were given an array of excuses of why the balloon could not be elevated: a broken part that was being delivered the test flights were every 30 minutes the winds were too strong etc...

El viaje en si no vale la pena. Hay que ir sin ninguna seguridad que van a subir el globo. He tratado de subir por los pasados 2anos y no he tenido la suerte. No es algo seguro. Hay muchos impedimentos u excusas. El viaje en si pésimo y uno no poder subir no vale la pena. Ya me doy por vencido. No más viajes para jayuya. En mis próximas vacaciones jayuya está descartado
