really cheap, fun and save way to a lot of Medellin! We went on both the Medellin Metrocables and they were both great! One tip: if you want to put your phone on the edge of the bench to make a timelapse it will fall behind it. (and it can be quite stressfull the back it back :))

The only benefit I see to the ride is the opportunity to discover a barrio. The view of the city is good, and it gives an idea of its size, but I wouldn't call that view pretty. Don't forget to buy tickets to go back to the center when you buy your tickets to go up: the line is VERY... More

The metro`s culture has expanded their philosophy up the sky. The metro cable of Medellin is clear prove of the "Paisa" committed with the massive public transport of the city. There you can see the city from above, from the Arvi park up to the "comunas"

We rode until the end station where you get great views over Medellin. As long as you don't get out of the metro station you can ride back on a single ticket.

We took the metro up to Acevado Station, walked upstairs to Line K's aerial line, and joined the queue to enter the very slow moving clean/vented gondolas. The door closes and soon the car engages with the overhead cable and away you go upward. We passed through 2 stations where other passengers got on and off, then exited at Santo... More

The metrocable takes you up the hill to places you would never go as a tourist because it's where the poor live. You're on the 8 person car with the people who live there, and being able to see how nice everybody is reminds you that money is not everything. Just stay on the car to the top, don't get... More

Great experience, cheap activity and definitely worth doing if you are staying in Medellin. It's very easy, but just in case, here's what we did to go all the way to Arvi Park: We stayed in a hostel close to the metro stop Aguacatala. When we got on the metro we bought a metro card ticket with enough for 4... More

We are staying in the Poblado area, and we simply walked to the Poblado Metro station and bought a ticket (2000 COP) on A line (Niquea). We disembarked at Estación Acevedo, and took the K line. (There's no more charge as far as Estación Santo Domingo.) The we took the line up to Parque Arvi (5200 COP). The view along... More
