Fodor's Expert Review Teleférico
Kids and adults alike appreciate the sweeping views from this retro cable car, which takes you 2.5 km (1.6 miles) from the Rosaleda gardens in the Parque del Oeste to the center of Casa de Campo in about 10 minutes. If you're feeling active, take the (very) long hike to the top and ride the car down, or you can find well-marked trails and primo picnic spots at the top. This is not the best way to get to the zoo and theme park, located approximately 2 km (1 mile) from the drop-off point in Casa de Campo. You're better off riding the Teléferico out and back, then taking the bus to the zoo.
