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.

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

The Bufa has great view during the day and night. Unfortunately the teleférico was closed both times we came. It gets chilly at night. Try climbing to the top... to the cross.

We disappointed to learn that we couldn't get to the top by tram since they were building a new system and it wasn't ready yet. We went by cab which didn't cost that much. The views are spectacular, we were there on a sunny day...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.
