Nice views.

This is only 5-10 min ride but I think it is a must in visiting Zacatecas. It shows the views that could never be seen if you are on foot.

Only a 5 minute ride but good view of the city and easy way to get from La Bufa to the top entrance of Eden mine. No seating and very basic system Swiss made and looks to be well maintained

This Swiss built gondola gives you the best view of Zacatecas and the surrounding hillsides. Our conductor pointed out several interesting sights, such as the first Spanish house in Zacatecas. We took the Teleferico both ways, there is a discount for seniors with their Mexican DIF cards, but even if you do not have one . . . take the... More

I mean, you've seen one ropeway and you've seen them all, right? Well, yes, and no. I've never been in one that crossed a city - especially from the entrance of a mine to top of a mountain with a statue of Poncho Villa. There was something sort of wonderful and relaxing about passing over the city in the teleferico.... More

Since I live in Zacatecas, I take visitor to the teleferico (cable car) and see the wonderful view of Zacatecas which is a colonial city with many buildings built in the late 1800¨s and early 1900¨s. The cable car was inagurated in 1979 and the distance between Cerro de Bufa and Cerro de Grillo is approximately 654 meters traveling at... More

The Zacatecas Cable Cars are a must do while here. The views are spectacular! The cars are a bit small so the wait in line can get long especially during vacation periods.

We went at 10 am when they opened and it was a great way to see the city. I noticed when we returned about 2 hours later the line was super long. It was well worth the ride. The ride was smooth and the guide was very informative (only in Spanish). The only bad part was that they have 12... More

Its fun riding the cable car. It goes very slow so it feels very safe. You get views of Zacatecas in all directions. On the day i wanted to ride it , it was windy so i could not because its not operated when the weather is windy. Finally my last day in Zacatecas I was able to ride and... More

Put your fears aside, and jump on the "Teleferico". The most amazing views of the city are seen from here. The cost is reasonable, and worth it. Only a few minutes to get across, but worth it. The line was long, but only because it was closed the day before due to high winds. Get to the "Cerro de Bufa"... More
