There can't be many transport systems in South Amercia which win such high marks. The Metro Cable is very efficient, well managed and spotlessly clean. Above all, considering Medellin's recent reputation re security and also that the cable is a transport system for the marginalised people of the city is was great to be able to start up a conversation...

It's cheap as chips, safe and modern. Don't just take the cable for the views. Take time to walk around near the stations, buy a beer at a little bar and try and chat to a local. It's perfectly safe so long as you stay in the busy areas near the stations. I loved the area around Santa Domingo. It... More

Easy to use once you have had a few trips, sometime long queues form to buy tickets so try to buy the number you need at the one time.

The Metrocable provided incredible views of the hillside communities and the valley of Medellin. It was a sight to behold!

I'm afraid of heights but was o.k. in the fully enclosed gondolas. Interesting experience to see how the locals live. Great scenery shots and had a great local meal for $4.

What a great development for the people who live in the barrios on the hills. Previously neighborhoods off limits to many, now accessible by all. It's cheap, efficient and offers incredible views of the city. It may be advisable to not venture into the neighborhoods late at night, but during the day is fine.

The metrocable ride has 2 parts. The first part is mainly used to transport people who live along the metrocable line. Stay on the metrocable until you get to the end and enjoy the views of the city. From there you change onto another one after paying another 4600cop (each way). The second part of the trip is much longer... More
