This is a pretty and colourful puebla that is being overrun by tourist groups. We stopped here for lunch after our climb up El Penol. The buildings and storefronts are indeed beautiful to look at but the hordes of tourists spoiled the experience. I did find some less busy side streets to explore and once the large tourist groups left for the day, I was able to get some nice pictures. Word is out that Guatape is worth visiting but unfortunately overtourism is changing this once quaint puebla into another heavily visited tourist stop.

This town is beautiful, and has many tourists during the day. Wander away from the main clauses to see the smaller alleyways and escape the crowds, just as colorful and beautiful. This is a great way to spend half a day.

Strolling around Guatape is a real pleasure. There is color everywhere. Every house, every building, every restaurant, every store, and even the church, display proudly their creative "zocalos". These are ornamental stripes painted in the lower half of the exterior walls, depicting flowers, animals, local scenes, symbols, in bold combinations of intense colors.

Steps away from the Main Square and the Church, you will find the Plazoleta de los Zocalos. It is a small square, with rows of steps in one of its sides, each step painted in a different color, yellow, blue, red, green. It is surrounded by colorful buildings and souvenir stores, cafes and restaurants.

Locals and tourist congregate at this spot, where you can take pictures, find street performers, listen to Colombian music, or simply sit down and relax.

Yes it is touristy but what a pretty town. The colours and atmosphere on a Sunday. Loved it. Browse, take photographs, get a bite to eat or have a drink and then get lost in the pretty streets. Explore! Easy to navigate. The town is very small.

Spend a wonderful day at the Plaza. Friendly locals and plenty of local foods to try. Did some shopping at the local shops and spent some time at an art Studio.

A brightly colored small, pedestrian square, surrounded by shops & restaurants. Be sure to check out the chocolate store, the best chocolate in Colombia BY FAR!

Area is so colorful and well maintained. Shops are fun, artisanal ice-cream was delicious! Picture opportunities were great! Perfect compliment to Piedra del Penol!

The village is developed for tourists and this is quite obvious on this small square. Still the colorful decorated houses, the nice shops and the well maintained architecture make this place very pleasant and worth a quick stop..
