We took the Metrocable from Acevedo up to Santa Domingo then a second cable car to the Parque Arvi. The metrocable cabins can each hold 8 people, but the station attendants usually put only 6, and were very attentive at keeping families together. The cars...More

Incredible views, super clean. One of the best metro systems in the world. This system connects the rural mountain regiions with the downtown and is very well done.

Benefit from your metro ticket and wander Medellin from the metrocable! If you go to Parque Arvi, it’s an extra 6000cop each way, but the view and the park (free) worth it.

It's inexpensive and gives you an amazing perspective of the city. I recommend you take the one to Parque Arvi. It's a pretty king ride to get up to the park.

We started in Acevedo and rode to the end. Stayed on and came back down. Nice view. A little wobbly. But we enjoyed riding one for the first time. It doesn’t stop so you must hop in when doors open. Fits about 6 people and...More

I am not 100% confident but there appears to be more than enough space on the metro cable....people are relatively easy going. I am not sure how "big" is big but I would say that a normal suit case (15-20 kilos) would not... More

We bought a one-time travel ticket for use on public transport. As long as you stay in the transport system and don’t leave it, you can use metro, metro cable etc on one ticket.
