good way to see the city and surrounding area from the air. inexpensive and safe. take it round trip from the cerro Grillo or one way from cerro Bufa. that way you can walk down the hill from Grillo to the center of town.

The view from the cabin is very good, but I would not ride it agai. First af all for the waiting time. It would have been good if they had a waiting time before purchasing tickets. Especially in the Bufa end. Very long line which you can not see until you buy a ticket. Then wait for a long time... More

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
