Parking can be an issue if you go on a holiday. There are zip line adventure activities available at the top. It can get very very cold and windy at the top of the hill. Be sure to have someone with you that can either translate or pay for the tour. There are plenty of shops and food sales at... More

At the top of the hill, cerro de la bufa, you will have a very nice view over the city and the valley. You can take a bus-train to the top or you walk along the Indian traders which are selling handmade stuff. At the top you have the spectacular statue, rocks where children can climb on, the museum and... More

The teliferico (cablecar) is only 50 pesos each way with an incredible view of the city. At the top the view of the city and surrounding countryside is breathtaking. Be sure to walk the stone pathway to the Moment of Heros. As well take in the museum of the Revolution (20 pesos); it is small but well worth it.

You can get there by Teleferico (cable car) and then walk a few steps (steep walk uphill) or by car and then walk a bit of distance (not a steep walk) because the parking is always full. Awesome view of the town and surrounding mountains. One of the very few places in town where you can get sugar cane to... More

I went there during Holy Week, la Bufa is the Zacatecas top hill. The weather is cool which means that you can walk all the way up there and you will not feel too hot. The view is amazing, you can see the entire city from there and there is a "Teleferico" or cable car that you can take and... More

I took the cablecar to la Bufa and spent about 90 minutes at the top admiring the view, visiting the small church, going around the well- thought out and high quakity Revolutionary Museum (although all explanations are Spanish) and looking at the multiple monuments dedicated to leaders of the revolution. It was pretty windy at the top, so take a... More

One of the most beautiful places I've visited! Cerro de la Bufa sits on a mountain high about the city of Zacatecas and Guadalupe overlooking both cities.. The scenery is breathtaking.. the history behind this cerro is interesting.. lots of history sits on this battlefield ground.. el teleferico (sky zipline) is a must ride across the city's skyline.. what a...
