We took the metro cable, which is just like a gondola, for a scenic ride in late afternoon from the Acevedo station. The views are awesome. However, the areas it goes past were a bit downtrodden. Both the metro cable and the main metro were...More

Good, clean transport, really nice views, not just the slumps but the forest on the way to Parque Arvi (Arvi Park), a nature preservation.

You can't beat this for a quick introduction to the city. We took the K line up to the new library complex and the Santo Domingo barrio, then continued on with the L line to Parque Arvi. The L line is long (takes about 20...More

The Metrocable to Santo Domingo and the Biblioteca de Espana is free with your Metro ticket. Efficient, safe, clean & scenic. The second link of the Metrocable goes to Parque Arvi, a must see for visitors. Cost for this very scenic link is 3500p

The cable car ride gives you a completely different perspective of the huge sprawling city that is Medellin. Wonderful to hear the people below and be able to see the city beyond. Keep on going up. Arvi Park is definitely worth a visit. Within 15...More

Amazing views of the city, definitely giving another perspective to Medellin I found very worthwhile. It was hard to take any quality pictures through the scratched plexiglass unfortunately. Also, if you decide to pay the extra ticket to take the trip to Parque Explora, if...More

Great views of the city from San Javier station and Acevado station to connect.Well worth a buck(1800 cop) to use the Metro.An extra charge to go further up the mountain at Acevado.Dont miss it if you dont do anything else while you are here.

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.
