The newer tourist cable car is still broken, but this original remains a must see. The views from the top are quite beautiful. Don't forget to try the eempanadas. An order is only 1000 pesos,and comes with four bite sized pieces of yumminess!

Fun experience, this cable car offers you a good experience for a good price. And the view at the end is amazing. Plus you can have a cold beer with some locals at the bar in the top.

Don´t hesitate, it is going to be fun. A short trip in the garrucha, for about U$2,5 (round trip). Expect at the top a very nice view of Jardín and its mountains, and have local food and beverages. Don´t miss the “empanadas”. It is open...More

This is unlike any other cable car you will have seen! Very rustic little wooden box on a cable. The trip to the top takes only a few minutes and costs 4,000 pesos, you can then enjoy a drink with a view in the cafe...More
