A grand vista of the city from the inside of a small cable car. If you've been to Medellin, these are similar. The ride is one way or roundtrip. Pay a little more and ride with a glass bottom! Don't miss the Camera Oscura exhibit.

I’ve taken the teleférico before and it’s a chance to see beautiful views of the city. However, the last 2 times that I went (September 2016 and March 2018), I brought huge groups and it was under construction. Supposedly it’ll be open by the end...More
