The Medellin Cable Car - Other Activity Medellín - Colombia

It is hard to imagine a more delightful and relaxing way to make your daily commute to work than drifting over the rooftops in a cable car. In Medellín, this dream for commuters is a reality. Since building a metro running up the valley wall into the poorer neighborhoods of Medellín was logistically impossible, the city developed this mode of transport instead. The cable car connects these districts with the main metro line at Acevedo station. From Acevedo, the cable car runs through two stations, Andalusia and Popular, before reaching the end of the line at Santo Domingo Savio and then commencing the return journey. The trip over the less affluent barrios of Medellín is a great introduction to the troubles that still haunt the city. Hop on or off, and you will find a willing local ready to chat, share some wisdom and point out the sights of the city from up high.
