Loved it; it was slow enough to get an excellent view of the great city and to hear about information being told.

The view from the cable car is really nice, and the operator told us a lot of things about the city and the buildings even though the ride is quite short. It costs 150 pesos, but you can easily walk back down to the city from the top of the hill or take a taxi with less than 80 pesos.

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
