Definitely walk up there or take the teleferico. The view is amazing and there is a small museum on top, that is worth visiting as well. There are some vendors around selling crafts and food. If you go early you have the place to yourself.

The views are amazing. You can see the entire city from the top. It takes a little to get up here but definitely worth it! There are also cute gift shops in the area.

A must visit for Zacatecas, great aerial photography location, small museums and shops, shops are way cheaper than any others downtown, so buy your souvenirs and extras here.

We took a cab there, which was kind of a mistake because we couldn't get a cab up there or uber until an hour later! The ride up there was very nice, the view is amazing up there. The chapple up there is so sweet...More

'Climbed' up to the Bufa, following first the street adjacent to Calle Angle and then a nice path with plenty of place to rest, since it is a rather steep 700 meter trail. The view is great and the chapel nice to visit.

The views are great from La Bufa and we enjoyed walking around outside, climbing up the hills, etc. They have beautiful statues outside representing on of the famous battles in Zacatecas. If you are not a Spanish speaker, the museum itself probably is not worth...More

A few years ago we rode the tram to the summit - that's no longer working and it's been down since 2016. The cable is down too, from what I can see. Don't expect to see this up and running anytime soon.... We rode a...More

A lot of information on the area including very important historical info. Outside the museum it's just as historical. There's an area facing the entire city from the top and that provides for a meaningful experience. The only downside is that some areas are plagued...More

I cannot answer this, but there are plenty of hotels in downtown that are very close to the Nighclubs, an easy walk there and back.

San Sebastian - Cerro de la Bufa (3 Replies)
Hello all, My wife and I are on our first trip to PV and I am contemplating a day trip to San Sebastian del Oeste. I have found some great info on the forums here but still have a couple of questions: 1) Is San Sebastian the best option for a day trip into the mountains or a historic village? Does anyone prefer Mascota or Talpa de Allende over San Sebastian? We will be travelling by bus; I'm assuming the info on vallartainfo.com about getting off at La Estancia and taking a taxi the...More

San Sebastian is not feasible as a day trip due to the bus schedule. As are the other towns. But but as a tour, like Superior Tours, easy in one day
