A must do when in Medellin. Views so good you wish everyone could be there to see them with you. Such an experience would cost 10x more in other countries. You can't miss this.

We bought a one-time travel ticket for use on public transport. As long as you stay in the transport system and don’t leave it, you can use metro, metro cable etc on one ticket.
