Lovely view

Safe, comfortable, even for those afraid of heights as I am. There were fairly high winds that day and the tram didn't even rock. Great views.

The teleferico is treated as one of the main events in Zacatecas, but actually it's not very spectacular. The view is nice, the ride is short, the waiting time unacceptable, the organization simply bad. Personally I would not recommend to ride the teleferico without checking what the current waiting time is. Even if the line seems short, the waiting time... More

At 50 pesos a trip, this must be done! The cable car crosses the city while the operator points out all the landmarks. At the top of the mountain you are presented incredible vistas of the city, a pleasant walk, a great museum and a lounge (if you have a thirst after the walk). We really enjoyed this trip!

Its was a quick ride but the view was awesome. I recommend doing the Mina el eden trip first then take the teleferico in to the bufa.

Long lines to get off the mountain start at about 3:00. Waited almost an hour so time your departure well!

I took the cable car to the top to view the city and explore the museum, church and revolutionary square of 'La Bufa'. The ride itself was fun, but at 50 Mex dollars a throw, I decided to walk down which is really easy due to the numerous easy to walk routes down.
