Very fun

Lots of fun to see the city from this perspective. There are three different lines for you to choose from, the line from San Javier has an amazing view of the whole city.

This is a great thing to do. There are two sections of metro cable and if you get off at the second station and cross over the bridge to the next station and get back on you can go all the way to the too to Parque Arvi. The views of the city going up are great and the top... More

Besides enjoying Medellin's metro train system and sights one can take the cable car with the family just two stations before the end of the line, you'll all enjoy with the public that use that system of travel everyday to the metro, you'll see the local neighborhood's without leaving the car up and down!

It's a cable car that takes you in different route thru the city. It provides a great view of the city as it goes way up into the mountains

Even though I am scared of heights, I decided to just do it. And I'm glad I did.Easy to go on your own and avoid a tour group. The ride up the mountain was smooth and the scenery is literally breath taking -- first over the commune and then on to Pargue Arvi. The restaurants are so-so. If you want,... More

If you're good with hights, this ride is recommended. You can take the Metro to Acevedo station and that connects to the gondola called Metro Cable. You first take the ride to Santo Domingo station for about $2.000 pesos and then you take another gondola towards Parque Arvi for about $10.000 pesos. The ride is impressively long, specifically the one... More

Take the metro train to Acevedo stop. It connects with the metrocable without paying extra. You have to transfer to another metrocable if you decide to go all the way up to Arvi Park (which is what we did and costs $9,000 COP for 2 people). At the park there are also tours to do or you can grab food... More

Note that this metro cable is basically just part of the public transit in Medellin. If you on this, it's $3 US (about 8,000COP). You shouldn't be spending more than that on any tours involved with this, but for what it is, it's a great view of the city and at the top you go to Parque Arvi. The city... More
