It's a nice smooth ride on good equipment that seems relatively new and well maintained. It reminded me of the cable cars at ski slopes. The cable cars each hold a max of 8 people. Good views, although the plexiglas windows have scratches and crazing...More

Unfortunately, the upper section was under maintenance so couldn’t go to the top. But it’s worth seeing that part of Medellin. It’s part of the Metro system.

a brilliant approach to affordable urban transit for the working class neighborhoods arrayed up the steep hillsides of Medellin valley

In a city where most of the poor live high on steep hills, this is a wonderful way to solve transportation problems. It is cheap to use and makes a fantastic tourist attraction. Don't miss it.

What a great way to show visitors around the city. The ride is smooth and efficient. They keep the system so clean; not a graffiti in sight. The view of the city from within the cable car is exceptional. Terrific experience

The Medellin metro system is impeccably clean, well-maintained and runs on time. A dream for city travelers! The views from the metrocable in particular are a must - take the L line towards Parque Arvi for an amazing view of the forest and valley.

Medellin has figured out a way to traverse a city that has lots of mountains and valleys. The metrocable is part of the metro system and provides a great way to get around and it's very reasonably priced.

The Metro Cables, which are part of the Metro ticket, are wonderful They are plentiful, new and take you to levels that overlook the city.

Bravo to Medellin for constructing this wonderful system to bring its poorer communities into contact with the rest of the city. Aside from its beneficial impact, the cable cars make for an enjoyable tourist outing as well.

The taxi rates from the Jose Maria Cordova airport in Rio Negro (MDE, the international airport) are fixed and posted by the exit. Cost us 65,000 COP (approx $22 US) and is about a 45 min ride.

Walk to the El Poblado Metro train (straight down Calle 10 to the river) and head north towards Niquia. You're going to want to get off at Acevedo, and from here it is an easy transfer to the Metro Cable. The first line... More
