It's a very cheap and convenient way to see a panorama view of Medellin. Very easy to use but remember to avoid it during rush hours - you will waste so much time while during the working hours there's absolutely no waiting time :)

My friend and I took the metrocable up to Park Arvi late one afternoon and it was gorgeous. The ride was smooth and quiet and the view was spectacular. We got off and checked out the library and the town and then continued up to the top. When we got to the top, the line plateaued and we glided over... More

Getting the metro cable all the way south and north of the city was the cheapest yet best spent hours on Medellin! A must do activity!

Relaxing ride up the mountain/hills of Medellin. You pass through the poorer neighborhoods of Medellin and see why the metrocables are so important for that community. You are also rewarded with the sweeping views of the city of Medellin.

This is a great way to get a feel of the city. Its not only the cable cars, but the whole process of jumping on the metro, taking the train through the whole city (assuming you're staying in Pablado), and then seeing the city from the air. If we had to do it over again (with the limited time we... More

Having ridden metro systems in London, England; Paris, France; Rome, Pisa, Florence, Italy; New york City, New York; and Washington DC, I can honestly say that this is the best of all of these. Clean, on time, quiet, comfortable, and where people share a "metro culture" that I've seen nowhere else. Medellin is proud of it, with very good reason.
