It was a fun experience. It is a different view of the city and you get to experience Medellin more like a local.

I would recommend those visiting Medellin to take a trip on the metrocable. It is cheap and you get a great view of the city and of the residential areas. It was unfortunate that the section of the metrocable that connects to Parque Arvi is closed on Mondays and there are no notifications of that anywhere online and on their... More

This was great to see. Super cheap to ride and gave sprawling views of Medellin. It would have been even better had we not had to evacuate mid ride (in a tough part of town) due to an approaching rain/lightening cloud. We heard rumblings that this happens quite frequently. I would definitely recommend this to anyone traveling to Medellin...just check... More

It's cheap, the view is great and you'll enjoy it. A great way to see the city and an insight to real life in Medellin.

The cable car took us from the Metro up to the top of the hills overlooking Medellin and its surrounding suburbs. The view was stunning in being able to view the panorama of Medellin and the bowl in which in lies. The ride was uneventful in the sense its pace was slow and methodical stopping on several stations on the... More

The metro takes you throughout the city to remote areas. It is connected to a cable car system that will take you to Avri park and to local barrios.

Yup - the rest of the reviews here have it right, so I'll just echo everything they're saying. GO ON THIS RIDE and you will not regret it. We visited in rainy season, and we tried to go during a massive downpour. It was shut, and it looked for a moment like we wouldn't make it but then they reopened... More

If you plan to visit Medellín, you will have to take the Metrocable. For something like 1,700 COP (less than 0,8 US$) you will enjoy incredible views on the city and understand why Medellín was named "most innovative city" in 2012. It enables you to discover much more than El Poblado. There are actually 2 metrocables in Medellín. If you... More

This is a nice leisurely ride over a poorer part of the city. The metrocable was built to provide locals with a cheap and easy way to return home every day. It offers nice views of Medellin for very little money. I found it interesting to see a part of Medellin that I wouldn't normally visit. The cable ride is... More
