The view is great !... You can see the all city and it's also a nice way to go to the La Bufa mountain whithout walking to much. If possible go in the morning because in the after lunch it's busy and you may have to wait a couple of hours.

After visiting the Minas, wandering in the heart of what had been one of the great silver-bearing mountains in Zacatecas, my wife and I decided once we were nearby to take the teleferico across the city to the opposite hill. State-of-the-art cable construction gave us perfect confidence to think about what we were seeing, not whether we would tumble into... More

What a rush....don't miss it for sensational views of the city. It's a bit difficult to find on foot, but well worth the experience. Take a cab from town to avoid a lengthy walk if you are impeded in any way.

This is a nice way to enjoy the beauty of Zacatecas and have an overall view of the city. I believe that taking the teleférico during the evening (with the city lights) would be even better! You can buy the tickets directly in there but It is also a good option to check for tours that include the transportation to... More

I have to say I was a bit disappointed when I finally hopped in the teleferico. The ride is very short, and it was too crowded, I couldn't really see that much of the city. Was able to take about 2 or 3 pictures, but I was expecting more.

A nice experience as it allows you to have a general sky view of Zacatecas. The teleférico guide was quite amicable. We stood in line for about 35 mins; and it's a one way ticket. You need to buy another ticket at the other end if you wish to return via teleférico. You can walk down the mountain too; waiting... More

This is also a highlight of your vsit to Zacatecas, you can get a panoramic view. Maybe they need a new Cart but it is nice.

Amazing ... a must if visiting Zacatecas! It takes you from the upper part of Downtown Zacatecas all the up to Cerro de la Bufa ... very good views and well worth the pesos and the wait!

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.
