The Metro was a safe and affordable way of getting around. The Cablecars are worth doing in their own right. You get great views and the Park Avi was also a wonderful time.

In some countries you pay in excess of $20 USD to ride on a cable car. In Medellin it's included with your entrance to the metro (at just $1). To go beyond Santo Domingo station requires an additional ticket, but this is also quite reasonably priced (at less than $5 return). Views over Medellin are fantastic. Well worth the experience.

This is a great thing and must do when going to Medellin. Very cheap and you can get quite far just on the one way train ticket. I carried on to the top and the national park, the views on the way going up the side of the mountain were amazing of the city. In the national park you are... More

Great view from the Metrocable. Travelling with locals that live in the favela. Best way to get there is with the metro because of the traffic jam. Take the metro from the Jardin Botanica 3 stops to get to the Metrocable.

I am scared of heights but this was so much fun! I cant remember the price but it is not that expensive. Maybe 10,000 pesos round trip? Bring your camera because the views of Medellin are BEAUTIFUL. Also, if you plan on going to Parque Arvi wear good walking shoes. There are bathrooms (but you have to pay for toilet... More

First of all, be sure to check to see if this is open before you make the trip (my husband and I took the Metro from Poblado to Acevedo). Yesterday, we rode all of the way here and in the cable cars up the mountain (the first 3 stops are free and part of your metro pass) just to find... More

this is fantastic. great views of Medellin. it is defiitely worth getting on to the connecting cable journey to the park arvi, but leave in plenty of time as the park shuts at 5pm and the park is huge! definitely check this out but leave early in the morning!

I like the fact that the metrocable has had a positive effect on the lives of the poorest people of Medellín. It also takes you the second metrocable to Parque Arví.
