A great way to travel from La Mina del Eden to El Cerro de La Bufa. Get to see the entire city, relax, and enjoy the diverse history of Zacatecas, Zac

at 50 pesos each way it is a bit expensive. however I recommend you to take one way and then go back by taxi. the ride is ok but one way is enough.

I went here for a school trip in 2004 (March) and was so afraid to do this but it was not as scary as I thought. I would do it again in a heart beat. Great opportunity for pictures and to really see the city. There were plenty of opportunities to pick up souvenirs on the paths leading to the... More

The view is magnificent, but the driver (?) wasn't engaged into providing information at all. The cabin has tinted windows which spoil the photographs.

Took a taxi from Centro (50 Pesos, a bit high) to the City end at 09:15. Did not realize it doesn't open until 10. Ride across the city is about 5 minutes, provides good views and gives a nice perspective and orientation of the city centre. The cost was 40 Pesos each way. It was worth the ride to enable... More

We had a very knowledgable cabin attendant and enjoyed the view for about 5 minutes, the souvenirs and "native" extra are superfluous, but good bird'e eye view on a sunny day!

The ride gives you a quick overview of the picturesque city. I wish we had more time in the air, but it still afforded a nice view angle. The city is colourful with some beautiful buildings such as churches. The ride is not really a must in the city. We took a taxi to get to la Buffa (higher end)... More

Although it is cheap (50 pesos, about 4 USD) I don't think it is worth the price. The ride is too short and the guide talks all the time, so it is difficult to appreciate the view and to enjoy it in silence. I enjoyed more being in the mountain where the ride ends, than in the cable car.
