Nice day trip from Medellín. Easy to reach from the northern bus terminal for approximately 13000 p.p. And takes between 1,5 and 2h. Entrance fee is 18000 p.p. Guatape, is a nice little town with loads of options for food.

This is totally worth the drive from Medellin. Go to El Penon de Guatape and climb the stairs to the top; the view is amazing. Drive a little more and enjoy lunch in the town of Guatape. There are many restaurants to choose from, and...More

The place has a extremely beautiful view of the nature. But, there are not too much to do on the Peñor. The positive thing is the "Cerveja Michelada", a beer with green mango, salt and lemon. It is very tasty.

Pretty nice seen from the top of the Penol on a clear day. The malecon itself is OK but not extraordinary with lots of restaurants.

The place is crowed but it's worth it. Take the 675 stairs to top of the rock to get the perfect view. Nice boattrip, good lunch and an awesome zip line ride.
