What to Expect

Following departure from a meeting point in central Medellín, you’ll travel to the village of Guarne for a traditional Colombian breakfast accompanied by coffee. From there, continue to Marinilla to admire its town square and handful of historical sites.

As you approach the town of Peñol, the dramatic silhouette of Peñol Rock (La Piedra del Peñol) comes into view. Opt to ascend to the rock’s summit via 742 stairs and enjoy spectacular views of Lake Guatapé from the top.

After a well-deserved break for lunch, you’ll take a cruise on Guatapé Lake (Laguna de Guatapé) and embark on a walking tour of Guatapé town.

The full-day tour concludes at your original departure point in Medellín.

Great value for money

Really enjoyed our trip to Guatape yesterday. We went with a large group but the tour guides were fantastic and spoke both Spanish & English. Only a small fee for this trip but a lot of value in it.

Clearly lists a boat tour on Guatape Lake as included - IT IS NOT!! Rest was OK, but took 3hrs to drive back to Medellin through rush hour traffic...

We were back at 6:30 p.m. at Medellin but the ride to an International airport is about an hour. So take this into consideration.
