The metro cable in Medellin offers a great opportunity to see the city from the sky. There are 2 different lines: West to La Aurora: there's not much to do up there so we just went up and down the metro cable. North to Santo Domingo: this one offers a better view of the city because from up there you... More

Very well-built cable car and very inexpensive to ride. I rode it all the way to Arvi. Transferring is easy and well-marked.

Having travelled to many cities I have to say that the Medellin metro and cable cars has to be the best local transit network I have ever experience. So much so that I am actually writing a review for a transport network; It's about the whitest thing I've ever done. Well priced and beautifully maintained, these links are a great... More

You have to transfer from the metro (which is a nice experience by itself) to the metro cable. We have to get outside the station because of special circumstances. If not you can make the transference easily inside the same building. There were more than 10 police officers guarding the stations. Once you get in the metro cable you forget... More

We took the Metro Cable with our our tour company, Transporter Medellin. The cars are clean and the stations immaculate. Our round trip fare was close to $1.00 and it provides amazing views of the city. This was a smart solution for public transportation.

Not only do you get a ride on a cable car, you get a great view of the city and you end up the mountain in a great neighborhood. with little local eateries that have charm, family staff and fresh food.

Although I am scared of heights, I am so happy that I got on the Metrocable and took it all the way to Arvi. The views are amazing! This is one of the best ways to see all of Medellin.

The medellin metro and metrocable are well organised, cheap, safe and clean. A one way ticket costs 2050 pesos (usd 0.70). As long as you do not pass the exit gates you can travel as long as you want. Ticket includes the metrocable lines. You will have an amazing view of the city. Stop at Arcevedo and take the metrocable... More

This is a great thing to do if you want to see the sites. However, if you have small children, bring something for them to do. They may enjoy the view and the may enjoy the area when you decide to get off of the Metrocable but if they are like my son, they may get really bored and start... More
