Approximate Taxi Fare from Medellin to Piedra de Penol

Hi Everyone,

My friends and I will be in Medellin this weekend, and we're thinking about making the journey to Piedra de Penol. First, is it worth a side trip form Medellin? Does anyone know the approximate taxi fare from Medellin to Piedra de Penol?

Bogota, Colombia

A taxi will cost you about $20.000 (U$12) but you're better off getting your hotel to call a Local taxi Co and book it for you... don't just take taxis on the street.

it 's also very easy to go by bus.. which leave from Medellin's Terminal del Norte. If you are going by metro get off at Caribe station which is connected to the bus terminal.

Satrapenol or Sotrasanvicente go to Guatape and Penol. It takes about 1 hour and 45 minutes and costs about US$7. You need to get off at the gas station and after an easy 20 min walkr you'll be at the Rock. To climb it is about US$4.

After, you may want to check Guatape which is a beautifly "antioqueno" town from where you can catch your bus back to Medellin (2 hrs). Buy the tkts in advance in Sotrasanvicente office on the square.

Anjoy Colombia!

Abrazos and if you need any more info just shout.
