This is a nice park to stroll. Hikes have to be escorted but you can walk and see some sights on your own. Fun day

The thing with the parque arvi is that the moment you get off the metrocable you get herded into these touristy presentations where they try to set you up with a guide and blah blah blah. Most people get stuck on this "stroll" that only...More

Maybe I missed the point of Parque Arvi because we showed up without a plan but so far, it’s been the biggest disappointment of Medellin. I had heard good things from some other bloggers but failed to read TripAdvisor before we left for the day....More

This is not just the cable car ending. The whole park is awesome. Great hikes and views. Some cool local restaurants too.

You can only do one tiny walk without hiring a guide. Most of the 20 minute walk was on the road as well. Thoroughly disappointing after reading such great reviews. There are good views from the cable car but that was about it.

The Arvi park is an amazing place to enjoy nature and have the country experience very close to the city

The best part about this park is the cable ride to it. To reach it, you have to take two cable cars that will reach the park. The first, from Acevedo station hovers over a residential area. At this point you make a transfer to...More

Maybe it was because of the crowds during the holiday season in Colombia (though it was Thursday 4th of Jan), but the queus and crowds were practically unbearable. We took the metro and cable car but it took 2 hours to get to Parque Arvi...More

I agree. Metro Cable is the most direct way to travel to Parque Arví. Plus, the views are spectacular!
