It's a nice transportation mode but it allow to have a view on some favelas and some part of the city that would be hard to walk to. It's so cheap (2600 COP) and you can do all the way around.

The Metrocable is an extension of the Metro that serves San Javier, Robledo, and some of the corregimientos. To think that it is anything other than just a means of transportation is somewhat silly, but that's what Trip Adviser is for! The true charm of the cable is that you can see Medellin from above, which comes with conflicting views.... More

The history of why the metro was built to help the community transform is inspiring. This is one of the reasons Medellin has become a great city.

Just do it - sit back and enjoy the views, the cable car is super modern and comfortable, you go right over the mountain and the forests, and can catch a breath of fresh air once on top. Easy and really nice.

Amazing insight to Medellin daily life from the comfort of a 5 star cable cart for the price of a coffee. Just go!

The Metrocable of Medellin is an impressive project meant to connect the poorer neighborhoods on the outskirts of Medellin with the city center. A ride up and down gives you a great view and macro perspective of all that is Medellin. Worth stopping at the top for a look over the mirador but take note that lots of people will... More

My husband, my three month old baby and I recently visited Medellín. We travelled on the metro cable planning to visit the garden/park at he too. Unfortunately, the park was closed so we weren't able to explore. Instead we stopped off for a walk around Santo Domingo. Great way to see the city. Interesting people as this is a mode... More
