A unique public transportation experience. You're never had so much fun commuting to a location. Sit back and watch the city go by. The last leg of your journey feels like you're entering Jurassic Park!

Medellín is the best in transportation, it's impressive this transportation way, you can feel safe, and enjoy the view. I enjoy the K and L lines since Acevedo station, but there are more, the J line in San Antonio station.

Fairly inexpensive (5000 cop) per stretch of cable except the first which you can ride with your train ticket (2000 cop) amazing view of the city, we went right up to the park at the top where there is some stalls and I believe a market on the weekend! Would definitely recommend it to anyone not scared of heights looking... More

Went on the cable car because I was told its a must attraction. Guess what? Its not If you go to the park on the last station it might be but the run itself to see the poor houses is not a big deal. At least does not cost much

Costing 2.5M peso round trip, very worthwhile and a great view from San Domingo. The next cable car up to Arvi is shut on Mondays.

We've ridden this twice with young kids. It's easy to get your ticket to get on the metro and transfer to the cable car and ride all the way up. 2/3 of the way up you have to get off and buy a separate ticket to get you to the top. You travel over some low income areas and see... More

Very cheap (1950 Pesos, about 0,6€) to enter the metro cable. If you arive with the metro you don't have to pay again. Only if you like to go via the metro cable to the forest you have to pay again. But to have a great view at the city, you don't have to take the second ride.

Great way to see the city - hard to beat for a broad view of Medellin and a great way to get to Parque Arvi - safe, easy to use, and cheap
