  • It is beautiful to see the dawn when the balloons being inflated and then watch them soar in the morning, is something spectacular, see them at night when they lit them. The organisers need to put the batteries in other ways because you pay your entrance ticket and if you have to pay, but the food you offer in is very low (although they say burritos, gringas and giant pirates) the tortillas are great but they only barely clouded content to all cakes or tacos and is very expensive and nothing rich flavor, locals outside of the Park sold food rich and less than a quarter of the price that sold it in that Yes is very abundant , but there to leave and return to pay the entrance fee there is no variety in the souvenirs are also very expensive, and there is nothing to do all day if you arrive in the morning at the elevation of balloons and want to stay to see them illuminated at night , they present some groups or music but a while and at noon there is nothing to do or to see and this is almost to the night.

  • Not recommend camping!!!!! Extremely disorganized the issue of park entrance and camping. We arrived with equipment for camping and told us that the closest parking was 1 km minimum, so we downloaded our stuff and we had to wait in a huge line, by approximately 2:30. To enter the Park, then we get to deliver the tickets and still face more queue for security control. They looked at our stuff 3 times, and the police told us that he was repeating pq boss was next and had to show service. The bathrooms are disgusting, chemical toilets are disgusting, but these were sooooo dirty! The camping area is not straight, also must have sold more than capacity, so a tent was stuck in another. The balloons are beautiful and impressed by the size and creativity, it is a show! If you want to go to the festival, if a guest in a hotel and leave super early to see the balloons going up!

  • I DO NOT RECOMMEND FOR ANY REASON GO TO CAMP!! We decided to camp in FIG 2017 together with some friends and it was the worst idea we've had. It was a total disorganization, nobody knew where to park and many had to walk a long distance with your camping equipment, then had to do a huge row almost 2 hours waiting in the Sun to enter. We had to walk with our entire team why wouldn't let us go out to the car or otherwise would have to pay for another ticket (did not have the minimum control in ticket sales) and arriving at the camping area was completely full at 5 in the afternoon there was no place for ecia disaster area after an earthquake not to mention that it was a place full of dirt and dust. those who arrived after 6 o'clock had to camp outside the camping area where I do not know if there was a minimum of security and comfort. Best to book a hotel in advance and get up early to see the balloons in the morning is the only thing that is worthwhile.

  • We been there for FIG 2017. Excellent place to Visit. Make sure to be at the ground at 6:30 to enjoy the event. If you are late you will regret.
  • An interesting and slightly beautiful park. The problem aligns with lot of public facilities in León. The lack or non existent funding shows the degrading age. There is bicycles you can rent at the park but all the bicycles have issues and are rusted. It took trying 4 different bicycles before finding an acceptably broken one. All had broken or damaged seats. For a town which experiences rain often, the lack of green makes a point of how little is invested into upkeep.
  • This park is really incredible, each time I come here I enjoy of relax moments, familiar camps and laughs with friends. Also here you can enjoy the International Ballon Festival that is an amazing and spectacular event with airballons at mornings and the best artist and singers at night, it's really amazing!!!
  • A good place to exercise, and connect to nature, in November it takes place for the festival internacional del globo wich is a very concurred event
  • Went there for FIG2017. Amazing view of Hot air balloons over the lake
