Went all the way to the top of the hill. It allowed me to see even more of this city. The local life is very interesting to me.

you get a great view over Medellin and it's sometimes poor neighborhoods. You can do it alone, it is safe, but we had the cable ride included in a halfday tour with Palenque Tours, so you you get a lot of information about the history of Medellin and they tell you a lot about these neighbourhoods and their sometimes violent...

Can't imagine this cable car is a daily use transportation for local people, you could use your Subway ticket to take it without extra charge, the city view was excellent while you ride it up or down hill, must go for it!

We rode the Santo Domingo line up in the North of the city and continued on the extension over the mountains to Parque Arvi. The views from up there are absolutely breathtaking, I could have ridden it all day.

The views, the sites, the smells. I just couldn't believe how spectacular this was. I am going to do it several more times before leaving. What an experience!
