“Very inexpensive way to get a different look at the city.”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

The metrocable is a fantastic way to get a different look at Medellin. Since it isn't really set up for tourism, but rather for public transportation, it is the same cost as taking a bus. A great quick afternoon trip.

“Great Views- Worth Doing”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

The metrocable is a relaxing way to see the city from above, while enjoying a break from the craziness and crowded feel of the big city below. If you take it all the way to the park you can enjoy a long, beautiful ride for a cheap cost. If you'll be in Medellin, this is a must.

“What a view!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

I must say, it is the best way to see Medellin. You see the pretty and the not to pretty in one shot. The cable cars go to areas that once took about 2 hours to get up to and made life much easier and accessible for people who live higher up the mountains. Those were also areas that were once not so good. With the metrocable, the area has become accessible, touristy, and safer for all. I recommend every visitor to take a trip on the Metrocable.

“AWESOME!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Its a metrocable, so yea, you are sitting the whole time, but the ride and veiws are amazing. it is also good to think about the fact that this is the first metrocable in the world created for daily public transport (vs for tourism).

But it's great for tourists too.

“Metrocable (stunning views)”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Take the Metro to Acevedo; switch to Metrocable to Santo Domingo. If you want, then you can pay an extra 4000 pesos to go up to Parque Arvi. While you get good views from Santo Domingo, the first 10 minutes of the ride up to Parque Arvi (which is about 25 minutes one way) is absolutely stunning in terms of being able to see the whole valley.

One tip: suggest to go in the morning. I went in the late afternoon (Metrocable to/from Parque Arvi closes around 6pm), but the sun is in the way for a good photo opportunity. I, however, witnessed how the metrocable is really useful to the commuters who live up on the hills as there was a long line around 5:30pm at Acevedo station.
