Just get to Acevedo station grab the cable car and after you can hop even further to the cable Arvi at SantoDomingo station For the view you need go no further. But if you go to the park it's an extra 2... More

One of the things we wanted to do was just ride the metro cable and we did just that after our walking tour. It's pretty cool and interesting to see how the local people commute daily, if you're the least bit afraid of heights don't do it, it's a slow moving cable car and if it's windy you feel everything....

A must do in Medellin, stunning views over the city, ability to explore less obvious/touristic routes. The cable cars are clean and well maintained also the area is safe, avoid evening rush hours 18-19 as the public transportation is very crowded. Totally cheap and worth it!

I had the privilege of visiting Medellin in Nov. - Dec. 2015 to visit the Christmas Lights Festival. We were there for 10 days with my in-laws. The reason for the visit was it was my in-laws 60th wedding anniversary and the the 60th anniversary of the Christmas light festival they have - it was amazing. Right from the time... More

This will be the best 5$ you've spent in Colombia, great views of the city, a visit to the ecological park, local food vendors. This is the number one attraction for a reason.

Beautiful views of the city and for the price of the metro, you can't beat it. Take the mentor north (Niquila) to Acevedo station and transfer there to the metro cable. No additional ticket required. Get on at Acevedo and just stay on while the metro cable takes you through the three stops and makes a loop back down to... More

Once inside the metro system you can transfer to this gondola for free. To go all the way to Parque arvi you may a few hundred pesos or so (less than $1) to go to the top. This is just a must do in Medellin.
