The cable cars are very new and modern and give an excellent birds eye view if the city. Please note these are public transport for local people so the are very cheap but avoid peak hour as queues are long. Also they don't operate in the rain.

Clean, well organized, safe and cheap. You have to try it. Excellent views. If you have the time go to Parque Arvi by metro cable. The views are worth it. Even if you don't want to walk in the park, the cable ride by itself is worth it! Just remember that mondays does not work.

The Metrocable takes you to Parque Arvi. Excellent views of the city were you can appreciate the different social clases in Medellin. It is very safe. The subway can take you there, just don't wear your expensive jewlery. You will get a lot of attention and, even when it's safe, you don't want to stand out.

We took the cable cars all the way over the mountain, and stopped along the little villages on the way up. This is how the people who live in the hills get into the city every day to go to work.

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
