If you'll be visiting Parque Arvi, be sure to make this your mode of transportation. The ride is lovely. Don't stop there though, there are many Metrocable lines in the city with amazing views.

very convenient service for locals and tourists. It helped people living in 'barrios' get out of poverty. The ride provided a panoramic view of the city.

The cheapest way to see the entire city! Easy to navigate through the metro rails to the metro cables.

Such a cool way to see the city! We didn't have tons of time in Medellin and it's such a big, sprawling city. Metrocable was an excellent way to see many areas of the city that we wouldn't have seen otherwise and to get incredible views of the entire valley. If you take it to Parque Arvi, you'll see great...

Wonderful view for the whole city!! If you in Medellin you must have this experience, really worth it!! And very cheap!! The only thing you need to do is to take the Metro Line-A, (the only Line) and get out at Acevedo Station, for 2000 pesos! Then go upstairs and take the K- Line! (Line-k is already the MetroCable).
