Meeting Location

Balloon America flies exclusively from La Mariposa Resort, 1501 North Houghton Road, Tucson, Arizona 85749. Our balloon port is owned and managed by an American Airlines captain. La Mariposa is located on the west side of Houghton Road 1/2 mile north of Speedway Blvd. and 1/2 mile south of Tanque Verde Rd. Look for the TWO LARGE STONE MONUMENTS that mark the entrance just a few yards west of Houghton Rd. The name of the street you will be turning west on is E Corte Vista La Mariposa. Follow it past the main building to the south end of the paved parking lot across from the tennis courts. Park there. We take off from the large polo field to the west.
