The cable car is a great way to see views of the whole city. The cars aren't jam-packed, you actually get to sit in relative comfort and enjoy the ride. You do have to queue a while unfortunately, as this is essentially a local form of transport as well as a tourist spot. Be sure to go early in the day as when you reach the top you will realise you're in a rougher part of town and not want to hang around too long.

Everyone in Medellin tells you to go on the metrocable. It is a transit system, NO BIG DEAL. Who has never been on a train before? They think it is special because it is clean. It does not go anywhere where any taxi could not take you in much more comfort since there were too many people stuffed in it.

The metro in Medellin is very easy to navigate, cheaply priced and safe. We were impressed that you could use your metro ticket to also ride the cable car up to Santo Domingo.

Very unique metro cable system used to transport people up and down the mountain. Efficient, clean and inexpensive, its a must ride for you to experience the grandness of Medellin.

Clean, fast and impressive. The metro cable cars in Medellin are really neat and you should definately take a ride. I would suggest doing it during the day as they do venture into some rough neighborhoods, but we felt completely safe during the day.
