A grand vista of the city from the inside of a small cable car. If you've been to Medellin, these are similar. The ride is one way or roundtrip. Pay a little more and ride with a glass bottom! Don't miss the Camera Oscura exhibit.

We were so disappointed that we couldn't go up in these trams. They are obviously a pride of Zacatecas since they are in every gift shop on t-shirts and key chains etc. It seems they are building a new system and I was told it...More
