combine it with "Comuna 13" (electrical escalators trip) for a 2 hours nice trip from Poblado.

The ride up the hill gives you an amazing view of the city, it's easy to buy a ticket, ride up to Saint Elena and visit the market stalls there. A must do in Medellin!

There is no tour, absolutely no money you can pay that can provide a better and more comprehensive view than the Medellin Metrocable. For a very low price you are able to see the whole city and the mountains that surround the city. ALWAYS go all the way to the end, well worth the little extra cost

It is a privilege to take the Metrocable together with hundreds of Colombians. Easy and cheap! A fantastic innovation to "open" the comuna. People from in can go out and people from out can come in. No more ghetto!
