“worth a trip”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

It was a nice ride and worth it since its just the price of the metro. The area it takes you over is interesting as well but not anything new if you've been traveling South America for awhile. It is poor and good insight but taking the cable car over this area to see it is for people who have never seen Peru or Bolivia. Ive lived in much poorer areas in Peru than this area of Medellín, but I guess this is a safe and clean way to see it if you haven't already?

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Is efficient, futuristic, clean and inexpensive. It gives you a good perspective of the city. It would be a great idea to install this kind of service in other mountain-based cities.

my favorite part of my Medellin trip was the gondola ride and hiking in the national park at the top.

“An amazing way to see Medellin and explore!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

The Metrocable system in Medellin is quite amazing. Relatively new and connected to the bus and light-rail Metro systems, the Sky Cable allows hillside residents to easily come into El Centro and for visitors to get a better sense of the variety of lifestyles in the city. It's a bit warm on strong, sunny days, but the 20-30 minute of journey offer superior views of the the area. A must see if you want to take pictures!

“Nice solution for a city in the mountains”

It is clean, you feel safe and it is a very smart solution to give good transportation for people that lives in the mountains.
