This attraction is about two to three hours by car from Medellin but worth the drive! ITs a tough drive through mountains and winding roads. When you finally arrive it is worth every bit of the time you spent to get there. The base has...More

The Peñon in Guatape is an incredible place. You MUST go to the top. Not only the stone is amazing but also its surroundings. The village of Guatape is a very nice place to walk in the afternoon and enjoy a good cup of coffee.

Nice attraction where you climb about 750 stairs to the top of a rock formation. Pace yourself and then enjoy the views of the countryside, lakes and river. Beautiful! I enjoyed a beer at the top and the way down was a piece of cake.
