Clean, fast, safe, with spectacular views. It is part of the public transport system so it is uncluded in the one price you have to pay. Don't worry about it being unsafe as you are going to a 'favela' area, you don't have to get...More

Only in Medellin do they integrate cable cars into the public transportation system to give access to the comunas nororientales of Medellin like Santo Domingo Savio. Highly recommended ! Take Line A to metro stop "Acevedo" where you can switch to Line K (the cable...More

Besides being a great help with the already very good transportation system in the city it's also quite a joy to use since it provides amazing views of the city. My favorite line to take was the one that takes you to Parque Arvi.

Show how the people leave and how the houses are made. Very different from the city. The Metrocable go from the base to the top and there are a good transport for the people who leave there.

Unique to Medellin and a great experience. Especially enjoyed visiting the Spanish Library which is at the top of one of the Metrocables...

Just get on the Metro head towards the Spanish Library on the Hill, it is 7 or 8 stops from the Poblado Station. Ride the Cable Cars up to the Top, stroll around, eat some Lunch, a great 1/2 Day Trip

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.
