Zacatecas, Zac is a beautiful, historic, and very colonial city where various important battles of the Mexican Revolution took place. From El Cerro de la Bufa, you can see so many of these places, as well as a spectacular view of the entire city. Make sure you take a guided tour, and learn about the statues, church and museum up...

The view is excellent but then the museum was closed and not much else to do. 20 minutes is enough up there unless your kids like running around with no reason

History has unfolded in these hills. Zacatecas is rooted here. The spirit of the whole entire land was born anew here. Cerro la Buffa is a site of profound importance, forever the resting place of heroes. The views are good, too. I suggest a cable car ride up, followed by a walk down.

What you get in la Bufa is an amazing view of Zacatecas and Guadalupe. The rest is just there to complete the experience. La Bufa provides unparalleled sightseeing.

You can't go to Zacatecas and not get up there, beautiful views, I've been up there during the day and at night and I think it's better at night but the pictures aren't as pretty, I guess you just have to go twice, it's worth it!

Visited in September 2013 with my wife and kids. We are Canadian and really stand out in Central Mexico, but felt very safe and all of us enjoyed the views, short hike to the top, and the sunset was spectacular! It's not far from the city - we went on a Friday evening and all the shops were closed (bonus!)... More

I stayed on the top of Bufa waiting for the sunset, and finally I realized that I was the only tourist left on the top of the mountain. I went to a policeman, who is a senior gentleman, asked him to do me a favor call a taxi. He doesn't speak English while I don't speak Spanish. But obviously he... More

On a very windy day (the tram closes at a certain high velocity MPH blow), my friends and I visited the Bufa. I was most taken by the anatomically correct genitalia of the horses. Wow!

Just another few hundred steps will take you from the Museum and Teleferico to the top of the La Buffo. There is an amazing view from there and you certainly see how big Zacatacas really is. There is a new Mausoleum dedicated to famous people from Zacatacas. I wished that there had been a little more information about the people... More
