Unbelievable how clean, efficient and cheap this is. The United states could take notes from this system. Less than a dollar takes you anywhere in the city but parque Arvi. Easy to navigate for gringos with no espanol as the signage includes English as well.

Easy to use. Get a Metro pass for several trips to avoid the ticket window every trip. Free connection to the gondola ride. Clean and safe stations.

Absolutely fantastic, it is a bit more expensive compared to the metro (only if you want to go to the top) but it is worth every penny.

To get to Arvi Park, you take the Metro to Acevedo station, then the Metrocable to Santo Domingo. Then get on another Metrocable to Arvi Park. Even if you don't spend much time at Arvi Park, the experience on the Metrocable is wonderful and so worth it. You get to see the hillside communities. If you print out a Metro... More

Easily accessible by the regular metro, the metrocable brings you to the top of one hill. Then you can take another one toward the Arvi park. The view while you're going up is beautiful. From the slums down the metrocable to the buildings of poblado you have a real overview.

I moved to Medellin from Atlant, Georgia. I was also riding publice transportation. The Metro here in Medellin is extremely similar to he one back in Georgia. I am from Florida and there are no extrensive Metro public tranportation system like the one in Medellin and Atlanta. The Metro exceeds ecpectations because of the cable cars and the fact that...

What's not to love: for the price of a Metro ticket, you can ride above the mountain settlements and even get off to purchase some water or food. Great views, comfortable ride. To be honest, I really love the whole Metro system and the great things you see on there: the politeness, the respect--it's awesome.

Good way to see Medellin from "above". Tip: if go to Arvi Park by cable car in hope to see Medellin from above and take some pictures, don't go all the way up as the park is far from valley's edge and there is no city view once you get there. Instead get off at the last transit station, save... More

If you travel by train this attraction is free as you get off at the station, board another train out to the cable car then board the cable car without leaving the stations. The best $1 return train ride/cable car ride.
