A great way to get to see all of Medellin and Arvi Park at the same time. Recommend to take the Metro Rail to get there as it makes for an easier experience vs. driving, parking, etc. Also, if you have time, explore Arvi Park, and head down the other side of the hill (about 1 kilometer) for a bite...

You will wait a long time to get on this, and there is not much food nearby, but once you get up the view is spectacular and it's a very cultural place. The far away look at some of the poorest neighborhoods on the mountain below definitely puts a lot into perspective as well.

Metrocable offers you unique experience by seeing one of the poor communities in Medellin via cable car. There are three routes of cable cars to reach the summit where residents go there to buy stuffs. The new route is currently under construction together with a library renovation. Looking down from cable car you can see numerous brick houses with a... More

It represents the shame of the mayors of Medellin who preferred to create just a metrocable instead of creating the necessary infrastructures related to wasted water, static structure, electricity... Avoid to go if possible as it is not a touristic place to see.

Great way to see the innovation started in the city. Great way for kids to get back and forth to school.

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!
