You shoud go up 'till Parque Arvi, and spent a good amount of time to enjoy it because it has a lot of things to offer.

As part of the fantastic public transportation in Medellin, you get the Metrocable! You can see the whole city from above. It also an incredibly efficient way to get up the mountain to the parts of the city away from the center. Imagine that you are on a giant chair lift over Medellin and that it was the MetroCable is...

Taking a ride on Medellin's Metrocable system is easy and VERY cheap! The Metrocable takes you over some of Medellin's poorer parts and, if you continue on up the mountain, to Parque Arvi. While the ride is relaxing and provides stunning views of the city, my cable car was quite full (8 people) and the glass was very foggy, which... More

The library is a symbol of peace here in Colombia! Enjoy the view of one of the most diverse urban landscapes in America!

Beautiful scenery, gorgeous nature, and fun times. Once you get to the park, there are a lot of locals selling food and drinks. I highly recommend getting food from there if you're looking for Colombian home-made food.

People in the mountainside have to take the Metrocable to get to work in the busy city of Medellín, Colombia. The Metrocable was built as the most viable people mover for the terrain. It connects to the Medellín transportation system which basically runs North and South along the river. You take the metro to the Metro Cable station and pay... More

I took this all the way from the train metro to Arvi park. That is about a 30 minute journey. But the views of the city make the time go by fast. Then when you are finally over the last hill, you can't see the city anymore and you feel like you are in another part of the country. I... More

I'm torn on whether or not to recommend you go all the way to Parque Arvi. You have to pay more, and a big portion of that section is going over the park, which isn't quite as thrilling as the rest of the ride, but you do get to see the city from the highest point of the Metrocable. Santo... More

This is probably the best and cheapest way to see and enjoy this gorgeous city. Take the metro to station connecting with the metrocable...go up...what a view!!! Then visit the park up in the mountain and enjoy yourself with all the local food delicacies offered by the numerous vendors. Get some souvenirs...and get back either by the cable or by... More

The metro cable is awesome for the people in the poor areas it passes. And the views you can enjoy as a tourist is definitely worth the ride even though it is a bit pricey if you go all the way!
