A must for your trip

The cable car ride is very scenic. The plus is the large park at the top. Plan on going on one of the tours there (1-3 hour options are available.)

We took the Metrocable all the way to the top of the mountain and arrived at the Parque. It was an excellent adventure and a great way to see Medellin and spend the day. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Medellin.

This was actually my second time riding the metro cable. It's really something that you should do and it's very in expensive.

The Metrocable is in fact an extension of the Metro rail system. Its purpose is to provide a swift, cheap and easy route to the city centre for the many thousands of people who live in the mountains.

Metrocable is a great way to see the city. Cheap and scenic. For an additional fee you can get to Arvi park and enjoy some cool hikes.
