Riding on the metrocable is definitely one of the best things to do in Medellín. It costs no extra than riding the metro. Therefore, it is very easily accessible. Riding in the cables will show you some of the greatest views of the valley. I highly recommend that everyone ride the metrocable before they leave Medellín! It is gorgeous!

This is a must do! A very nice way to get a glimpse into the homes of a very poor section of the city, it is very intriguing how the crowded neighborhoods "climb" up the mountain and then start to get more rural as you go and back. Once you get to the top, the park, walking trail, and various... More

Disliked jumping on and off while tram still moving. Also very warm the day we went. Very little circulation of air in tram.

When I ride cable cars, I am usually in touristic areas - I took one in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Jasper, Canada, Ocean Park, Hong Kong, etc. This Metrocable cars go up the hill in an urban area of Medellin, Colombia. The cable cars are not for tourists only but are used for everyday commute by the people in the... More

You just need to pay for a metro ticket to be able to go thru the metro cable. This is a really good way to see "El valle de aburra" and also to meet some good people that ate willing to take pictures with you.

The metrocable is a good way to spend a couple of hours. It connects to the normal metro, and the best line to go on is the San Acevedo line. A normal metro ticket can get you on the metrocable without having to pay again. Once you get to the top, you can just come straight back down again, as... More

Me and my friend loved the metro cable! We will probably go again soon before we go back to the United States. Cheap ticket and has a great view of the city.

Great ride! Longest cable car I've ever been on and fascinating to see the integration of the communas into the city. With or without the park at the top, it's well worth the trip.

No visit to Medellin would be complete without a gondola ride up to the communas that at one time were very isolated. The gondolas can fit 6 to 8 riders giving sweeping views of the city. There are about three stations - I stopped at the second and traipsed around the city and grabbed some lunch.
