“Wow! The view!”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

If you're planning to do some relaxing sightseeing in Medellin, I recommend the Metrocable. You just sit, relax, and enjoy the surrounding views. This trip takes you up the mountain and back down in one trip (if you decide not to go to Parque Arvi). If you should decide to go to the park, be careful not to go after 3PM - one of the locals warned it's dangerous after this time due to pickpockets and thieves. Also, the neighborhoods in this area are not the safest, so cuidado if you want to stop off at one of the stations to have a closer look. There is no specific fee for this attraction as it is part of the Metro system, so since you've already bought your ticket, the Metrocable is included.

“Very fun ride!”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

I very much enjoyed the spectacular views as I rode the cable-car to the mountain-top park. There are several stations where you can stop if you like (not the best neighborhoods). Bring your camera!

“A must in Medellin -- then go to Parque Arvi”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

What a view! And I'm acrophobic. The ride is wonderful, but you usually ride with others so you get to meet the people of Columbia. One of the best this I did in Medellin.

“Incredible views, great value, go all the way to Arvi Park at the top.”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Such an amazing innovation, this is a city that is very much embracing change and looking for positive initiatives for its residents, this is one of the best, a link which makes the city accessible for the people living in the poorer harder to reach districts, enabling access to jobs, libraries and outstanding views too, all for a price which puts other more affluent cities to shame.
Really not to be missed if you're in Medellin.
