If you visit Zacatecas, you have to go to the top of el Cerro de la Bufa, and you will find a little bit of everything once you are there. First of all, you will appreciate an amazing view of the city. Secondly, you will see the statues of Pancho Villa, Felipe Angeles, and Panfilo Natera, who fought during the... More

We have been here before, but this time we visited el cerro de la bufa for a wedding. It is spectacular. There is a lot to see. The view is amazing. Almost as amazing as the teleferico. There are little shops that sell hand made ceramics, jewelry, and clothes. There are also plenty of places to eat that have true... More

Amazing view from the top. I think this is the must thing to do in Zacatecas. There is a cable car that goes up the hill if you are not in steep hiking. There is a steep stair climb up from the center of the city. The climb is great. Definitely walk down if possible, coz there are good views... More

Peaceful, nice view, shops & zipline, worth a visit. You can get a photo dressed up in black-and-white bandito clothes, fun!

I had a lot of free fun going here, and climbing on the big rock. There is a great view from the top and some cool statues at the base. I would personally recommend to go climb the thing, it's really easygoing! :)

If you go to Zacatecas you must go to La Bufa, great spot at 2650 meters above the sea level. Also the revolution square and the surchs, etc are worth the visit

Take the cable car up to this historic site. Reflect on the bravery of Poncho Villa and his army of revolutionaries as they repelled 12,000 federal troops. The views of the city are amazing.

From here, you can understand how Zacatecas city was settled by the Spaniard Conquistadores in old Mexico. A mining city, one of the biggest enterprises in New Spain Territories and still a very "colonial" city.
