Quite an experience. From where we were staying in Poblado, we travelled by Metro to the cable car stop and then the cable car, all for 2,200COP, which works out around 70 euro cents. I don't know how it might be on a weekday, but we went on a Saturday and it was very busy with people. When you get... More

The Medellin Metrocable system is really unique in the entire country. It was built around 22 years ago in order to organize the transportation of its citizens which it was becoming almost impossible to fulfill just with the public buses. The Metrocable has been part of the most innovated city in the whole world Medellin, deriving from the Metrocable, comes... More

What a great way to see Medellin! We loved our trip up and down the mountain. The park was such a pleasant surprise, once we arrived at the top. We were not quite prepared to walk and explore the park like we would have wanted to. We did go to the butterfly house. We were impressed with the art vendors... More

If you want to see the city from every angle possible this is the ideal way to do so. It's only very cheap and ideal for groups of 8 people in each cable car. This is a nice way to relax and take in the beauty of medellin

We had read about this city metro and cable car system before we arrived in Medellin so had high expectations. It surpassed them - it's fantastic! We used it every day to get around, taking the cable car with stunning views over the city to Arvi Park during the day, and over the other side of the city to view... More

We did the Metrocable in the north. Was really great! We felt safe all the time and you can stroll around the entire are. Bit be carefull do not change in the next cable car it just takes you to the "park".

Great views and very cool that the metro is a cable car! It is just a cable car ride though. We rode multiple cable lines and they were all enjoyable. Very clean! I would suggest not going during rush hour though bc the metro trains are PACKED and the line for the cable cars is very long as people are... More

An absolute must if you're visiting Medellin. We went on to Parque Arvi but the metrocable alone is well worth a trip (and free if continuing through from the metro).

It isn't life flying, it is more like watching the city and its feeling its greatness from above, not like watching a recognition video from a drone, it's just more.

Nice views over the city. There are two lines. Take the cable car up to Parque Arvi for the best views and some off track hiking through the Parque if you want.
