Parque Arvi, Medellin Reviews
A must see for all who visit the city. Easily the most amazing trip to get to the park if you take public transportation (metro to the cable metro and all the way up) - inexpensive too. The views are astonishing on the way up and down, and the park is beautiful. Highly recommend going to area 5 to see the small waterfalls and the river. Great place for a picnic as well. Plenty of amazing food vendors too!
The best part about this park is the cable ride to it. To reach it, you have to take two cable cars that will reach the park. The first, from Acevedo station hovers over a residential area. At this point you make a transfer to the second car at Santo Domingo station. The car continues to hover over the residential area as it ascends to an undeveloped part of the mountain. At this point you're hovering over trees. The view is spectacular and the landscape is serene. Once you reach the park, there's a visitor center, food and shopping market, and restrooms. Unfortunately, the trails we saw were closed. Whether you plan to hike or not, the ride up and down the mountain is wonderful. The wait time to board the cable cars at both stations are long based on the time of day you go. Be prepared and take a deep breath!
A great, modern park. I took the tour of bromelias and orchids. It is amazing how much they do for biodiversity. When visiting, take the metro cable. Great view!
A natural environment within easy access of Medellin via cable car up the mountain side. They tell you to hire a guide but it's not required. Trails are not well marked however.
The cable cart towards it is great. Amazing views. The park itself I'm sure is an excellent day out when living in Medellin, but if you have only a few days in Medllin I wouldn't recommend it.
