It connects to the Medellín transportation system which basically runs North and South along the river. You take the metro to the Metro Cable station and pay... More

I took this all the way from the train metro to Arvi park. That is about a 30 minute journey. But the views of the city make the time go by fast. Then when you are finally over the last hill, you can't see the city anymore and you feel like you are in another part of the country. I... More

I'm torn on whether or not to recommend you go all the way to Parque Arvi. You have to pay more, and a big portion of that section is going over the park, which isn't quite as thrilling as the rest of the ride, but you do get to see the city from the highest point of the Metrocable. Santo... More

This is probably the best and cheapest way to see and enjoy this gorgeous city. Take the metro to station connecting with the metrocable...go up...what a view!!! Then visit the park up in the mountain and enjoy yourself with all the local food delicacies offered by the numerous vendors. Get some souvenirs...and get back either by the cable or by... More

The metro cable is awesome for the people in the poor areas it passes. And the views you can enjoy as a tourist is definitely worth the ride even though it is a bit pricey if you go all the way!

The Metrocable takes you up the hills of Medellin and traverses some of the poorest areas of the city from a safe vantage point.

The view from the Metrocable cant be beat. It is a ride you have to take on your visit to Medellin. It is an amazing sight, you can see the entire city. The boxes do get petty warm though. It is a short ride to the very top but I would recommend sun glasses and water for the ride.

If you have time to beat in Medellin there is no better and cheaper way than taking the metro and metro cable up to the last station before you need to change to the arvi park cable. Way fun with great views of the city.

We have travelled both the Metrocable lines. It's very easy because of the excellent connection to the "normal" metro lines. Naturally you will not be comfortable if you have a fear of heigts, but the Metrocable feels very safe. The Metrocable ticket is included in your normal fare ticket.
