Ok service. Little pricy for what it is. Just does the trick. Long wait sometimes. Great view of downtown zacatecas. It s a try once thing.

Put your fears aside, and jump on the "Teleferico". The most amazing views of the city are seen from here. The cost is reasonable, and worth it. Only a few minutes to get across, but worth it. The line was long, but only because it was closed the day before due to high winds. Get to the "Cerro de Bufa"... More

This is the main route to get up to the top of the hill to see panoramic views of the city. The attendants and friendly, bilingual and chat to you on the way up, interested in your views of the city.

This is the way to get to La Bufa. First tour the silver mine, then take the gondola to the top, visit the museums and zip line back down.

MXP 50 each way, with view of Zacatecas as you travel between El Edén and Cerro de La Bufa. According to the cable car operator, they are due to upgrade the cable cars to all-glass units that give better views. Not sure when that will be done though.

contrary of what I read regarding reviews, It does not look old and unsafe, it is save and very well maintained, actually new equipment is coming, not because It is needed because It is a different equipment that can come and go on the same zip line. Guide were excellent and now very well buildings and story, the view is... More

It's a long walk down from the hill top where a taxi drops you off to the entry for the cable car ride but the views are spectacular. The cable car descent is rapid and you're standing, jammed in with other people so you don't really get to see much. The museum on top hill disapponting as all in Spanish.

Zacatecas is a beautiful place! so you can imagine the wonderful view during this ride. Depending on the season the line can be long or short, also you have to watch out for the weather, they are professional enough to handle this situations. One sure thing is you wont regret taking this ride and a long line is totally worth... More

To get to the top of la bufa, the teleferico is the fastest way. The problem is that it is often so crammed full that picture taking is not easy.
