I visited here in order to see the library and talk to the locals. The locals are friendly, including 2 teenagers who were anxious to give me a tour of their town, including the sad history of violence there up until the not too distant past.

A local friend of mine took me up here and it was really great to see the city fro a different perspective. Its basically connecting the poor areas with the city and its a unique experience.

Definitely enjoyed the Metro Cable to Parque Arvi. The Metro Cable provides a nice view of Medellin while you ride up to Parque Arvi. I have made the trip via car as well as Metro Cable. The Metro Cable is easier and faster along with the nice views.

No trip to Medellin should be undertaken without a ride on this modern, clean, fun metrocable. A first experience for me it give one a good feel of the city, and the future of this city!
