The price is now 70 pesos each way… no discount for purchasing a round trip ticket. We did anyway to avoid queuing again at the top. We went on a Monday afternoon, around 3.30 and had to wait in line for about 25 minutes to get tickets, and same again to board the cable car. I sometimes get a bit fearful on these things, but I found this one pretty easy, maybe because you are all enclosed in a box. As others here have noted, it was quite warm in the car, with not much airflow, even though it was not a hot day. There is a small window opening which is good for photography, but shooting through the Perspex worked OK too (see my photos).
At the top there was some nice walking paths and seating areas arranged around a water garden, all nicely done. There was also a trendy looking café with spectacular views under umbrellas, but alas, he sold nothing but pop soda, water, biscuits and sweets, and the service was all but non-existent. The only other food available was from a popcorn trolley. Somebody could be cleaning up here, if they could get it together.
The cable stops running at 7.30pm. It was still quite busy when we decided to descend at around 6.50. We were surprised to find only a small line of people waiting to go back down. It was a pleasant enough way to spend half a day, and I would recommend you do it when in Salta. There is also an option to walk down, which could be fun.
