The two cable cars take you from the town centre to the centre of Villamaria via the transport terminal in just a few minutes. The views are great although they do pass over some of the less interesting parts of town.

For 1.900 Colombian Pesos (around 60 cents of a US dollar) you can ride the Cable Aereo which takes you down and then up again on a cable-way through the city. The view is amazing, you feel like you're flying or on a roller-coaster.

If you are in Manizales then you should try to ride the cables. It’s not expensive and the views are stunning. If you are going out of town by bus, this is the best way to get to the terminal.

One of the best things in Manizales is riding the cable car up from the bus station. Incredible views of the town and very inexpensive, 1800 COP for a ticket. Well worth the price for the view.

What a novel way to peek into the lives and livings of Manizales: cruising overhead in clean and secure-feeling gondolas.

This is the best way to get a quick panoramic view of the city. At the same time it seems to be the mode of transportation for many people. it connects with buses and taxis.
