Great way to view the city, and experience a poorer part of the city; get off at third stop. We went with a guide, which was probably smart given that he knew how to avoid rush hour. The trip also means you experience the metro, worth any trip to understand this city. But, avoid rush hour!

The view from the first part of the metrocable was great. Then, taking it 15 minutes into a national park was breathtaking. One of the highlights of Medellin, which is a great city to see from height.

On Friday 16 we took the Poblado Metro and stopped to Acevedo Station , in there we took the Cable in direction to Santo Domingo up to hill and returning to University Station using the Metro. This was a good opportunity to see it the Medellin city from high in the sky.

The metro cable is used by tourists and locals. The locals that use it live in poor neighborhoods that are in the process of integration.
