A must see outside of Medellin! A two hour journey from Medellin bus station. Only 770 steps to the top of El Penol (it didn't actually take that long- around 20 minutes but you can certainly feel the altitude). No need to book a tourist...More

Well worth the 1.5 hrs it took us to get there from Medellin. Incredible views. Exhausting climb but you get rewarded with the views. If going out there then have to go into downtown Guatape for lunch and relaxation. Great day trip to get out...More

The landscape of the Laguna the Guatape is amazing. When you have time I recommend you the go to the top of Piedro de Guatape (18.000 COP, 740 steps). The view from there over the Laguna is really great!

This is about 35 miles from the city of Medellin. We climbed the rock and had a drink at the top. Climbing was bit difficult because the stairs are narrow. recommend going down to the town. tons of restaurants and activities.
