The journey only last a couple of minutes but it's worth it and very cheap, you can see almost any point of downtown Zacatecas, your hotel, the Cathedral, The Bull ring Quinta Real...etc...

A great view of Zacatecas that puts this town into its geographical context.we took it to the top of the Cerro de la Bufa and then strolled slowly down. A lovely walk.

LOVED THIS RIDE. This ride not only gives one a great perspective on Zacatecas (which is chopped up into little sections) and the surrounding countryside, it's just plain old fun. Did not have to wait for more than a few minutes. Was the only gringo present, which was pretty much my experience the five days of my stay.

it's inexpensive. Great view from above. Luckily there was no line when I went. make sure you take good walkiing shoes. I would go again, it's nice to go up to the Cerro de la Bufa.

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

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
