It's very cheap to ride these and you get a tour of the city and it's people. You can get off at the top but remember this is one of the poorest neighborhoods and you must visit it with caution (dress down).

Fabulous ride up the mountain in a cable car. Great views of Medellin, Colombia. The ride shows all walks of life in this metropolitan city.

You change cable cars about two thirds of the way up. It’s a great view and lush natural area. The trail-heads are hard to find and would help to have a map. A couple I met walking was accosted by four teenagers who demanded their...More

Great views of the entire valley and into the mountains if you go all the way to Parque Arvi. Make sure you avoid rush hour, lines are longer.

This was part of our city tour and it is a great way to see parts of Medellin from the air. The cable car goes over areas that you could not visit. The round trip takes about 20 minutes and is a very enjoyable ride.

I would honestly recommend doing this in a tour because you will be going into the toughest neighborhood in all of Medellin. Our tour guide gave us a tour around downtown and than gave us history behind this area. It is really eye opening because...More

There are several metro cable stations and the best would be Park Arvi and eastern cable. A big plus for the city for little amounts of peso

I am not 100% confident but there appears to be more than enough space on the metro cable....people are relatively easy going. I am not sure how "big" is big but I would say that a normal suit case (15-20 kilos) would not... More

We bought a one-time travel ticket for use on public transport. As long as you stay in the transport system and don’t leave it, you can use metro, metro cable etc on one ticket.
