What's the simplest route to get to the top from the El Poblado neighborhood?
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 takes you to Santo Domingo which is somewhat safe to get out and walk around if you are cautious. Connected to the same station is a second Cable line which will take you to Park Avri.
All quite simple. See previous answers to get on the second Cable line via San Antonio.
The Metro is worth taking if only to see how much the people of Medellin truly love and respect it. Clean, well-maintained, no bad behavior; men -- even young men -- giving up their seats for women, especially pregnant women. If you're going to the Metrocable from the regular Metro train just be sure to follow the signs when you get to the San Antonio station. Most of the crowd getting off the train with you will be heading to the regular exits. If you follow them you'll have to buy another ticket to get back in and to the Metrocable.
if u mean to go to Arvi Parque you take the A linea to Acevedo station then take the metro cable to Santo Domingo then transfer to the Arvi parque cable. all these transfers take place inside the station.
You can walk or take a cab to the El Poblado Metro station. Transfer at San Antonio, and then transfer again onto the cables at San Javier. It sounds complicated, but once you're on the system it's a piece of cake.
I would take Uber or a cab. you can request English speaking Uber.
