Well worth it to hop on the Metrocable up to Parque Arvi. There is a cute all-vegetarian restaurant not too far from the stop, up there. The owner makes everything "with love" and the ambiance is amazing!

It’s a cheap and rewarding little ride. You get some great views. And special since it is really just part of the public transportation service. Definitely worth the while.

Very unexpected but great to see how organized and clean the metrocable is. after the walk in the center I felt like I got to see the real Medellin. Definitely a must do whether you are alone or hanging out with your couple or friends.

I am not 100% confident but there appears to be more than enough space on the metro cable....people are relatively easy going. I am not sure how "big" is big but I would say that a normal suit case (15-20 kilos) would not... More

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.
