Great city views

We took the cable cars to the top and back. Wonderful city views and picture opportunities. The cafe at the top is quite authentic and worth trying.

150 pesos is a bit tough for the return ride. It is possible to take the path up the hill, it is fairly easy to walk and nice scenery under the tress. The view for the top is nice and engulf the whole city. A nice little trip for a Sunday afternoon when all shops are closed and activity is... More

Unfortunately we were not thrilled by the cable car. The wait in line was long and cold during winter months. The view was quite plain at the top. There is a local market across from the cable car which is worth checking out.

We hiked up the cerro and took the tram back down. It gives you a nice view of the whole city, which is cool. Also conveniently drops you in the park next to the feria Artesanal so you can check that out after. Reasonably priced. Wouldn't do it on a rainy day but it was nice when we went.

Was nice to take the cable car and just enjoy the peace. Was a beautiful day, stunning scenery. A city looks so different from a height. The garden at the top was nice and a few good priced souvenirs. A nice thing to do if you have a spare hour or 2

We walked up Cerro San Bernando and took the Teleferico back down and were glad for having earned the trip down after all the steps up to the summit. Well worth the effort, as it took about half an hour to get to the top and it's only 8 minutes back down and gives a good view of the city... More

Fun experience and an excellent way to get out of the city noise and traffic. Glide towards the sky and the park waiting for you and the top of the hill. And the fresh air of course

We enjoyed our evening trip up the hill. The park at the top is beautiful, and the views are great. Well worth the money.

We walked through a pleasant park to get here and we were the first to board the cable car. The view was quite panoramic although it is hard to distinguish the landmarks of the old city. It wasn't a very clear day; on a sunny day it would be more impressive. There were some shops, gardens and amphitheatre at the... More
