From the metro you can change (free) to the first part of the metro cable. It is as clean and safe as the great metro's in the city. It is a nice trip up the hills. Half way, in the middle of the poor neighbourhood, you need to change for the last part of the cable to parque arvi. I... More

The views from the metrocable are amazing but the most amazing thing is the price. For about .75 cents each way the metrocable/metrotrain transports locals, as well as tourist, from Santo Domingo to the other side of the city. This cheap,clean and safe mode of transportation allows hundreds of locals access to jobs all across the city. As a tourist,... More

If you go to Medellin everyone will ask you if you rode the cable car...they mean the metro cable To reach the metro cable you simply get on the metro train. The cable ride is included in the price of you metro train ticket. The metro cable is a gondola lift system that goes up about 2,000 meters and end... More

The ride goes up 2000 meters with great views and then tours the rainforest at the top for a mile or so. Colombia has great challenges as the poverty on the mountainsides is clearly visible.

I enjoyed my ride in the metrocable up to Santo Domingo. It's very easy to get to the metrocable station- using the metro train, line A, you go toward Niquia, get off at Acevedo station and walk up a flight of stairs to the metrocable station. The best part is that you're still on the metro, so you don't have... More

Positives: Cheapest half day activity Experience the real medellin Safe during the day Great view. Negatives: Must afternoons it rains and most mornings its hazey so hard to get perfect day. Some of the windows are not to clear so if you jump on the wrong metro cart you may not see to much. Overall a good cheap half day... More

Great way to get amazing views of the city for a very cheap price. Also interesting that it is a viable mode of transport rather than just a tourist attraction.

I was thinking about take the "metro cable" and if it was safe or not, finally we went and took the metro cable in Acevedo station, we had a great surprise and had a good time, it is so safe and it's a great opportunity to see the "favelas" so near, then we went to "Arví" park, it's a beautiful...

Nice way to get good views of the city for cheap. Hard to get good pictures though as view is quite hazy. At the end of the day though its just a cable car, there are better things to do in Medellin.
