Great Mexican Revolution museum, it explains the accomplishments of Pancho Villa and helps you understand why he is so loved by Mexican people. The Mirador is very relaxing and the views of the city are great. You can spot the main landmarks, like the Cathedral, the Alameda, San Francisco church and even the San Agustin church with its white stucco... More

You can rather take a steep walk to the top or take a tour in a truck, my friends and I bought some beers at a local store and hiked our way to the top through town, the view is really cool totally worth it

We visited Cerro de la Bufa as a first stop in a tour recommended by the hampton's concierge. They picked up at our hotel, and during the visit the guide explain the name's origin and the sculptures from revolution characters that are there. Also visit the Capilla located there. Amazing city views to take pictures. Additionally there is a zipline... More

La Bufa is a vista point that overlooks the entire city of Zacatecas. It also has a concrete mini-plaza area with four very large bronze statues of Mexican Revolutionary War Heroes. There are basic restrooms (5 pesos) and garbage cans. There are souvenir stands and a snack bar with soda, chips, elote, and I think tacos and quesadillas. There's a... More

Many ways to access Cerro de la Bufa. We used the Teleferico and hiked the rest. You will not be disappointed.

Very picturesque, you can see Zacatecas from the viewpoint. There are also zip lines, amazing experience, all children in our group (the youngest was 4) did it on par with adults. Awesome and pretty cheap.

The Zacatecans make a big deal of the bufa. It is a nice place for viewing the town from above. But since we are talking about an old, colonial city, there is nothing to gain by a distant view in my humble opinion. The only worthwhile times are when there are fireworks. And then one had better secure a place... More

THE VIEW!!!! It's all about the view! Once you are up there, make sure to take the zip line! It is great and affordable! There is a nice "Mercado" to buy stuff.
