    A lovely day trip from Medellin. A must!
    This is a must! The best way to do it is a day tour from Medellin. Most tours do the same combining the Rock of Guatapé, El Peñol, or El Peñón de Guatapé, a visit to the town of Guatapé and a boat ride on Laguna Guatapé. Such a great day. The Rock is not that difficult to climb. Just take your time. I did it in twenty minutes at a reasonable pace stopping to rest and take in the views along the way up. Coming down was easier. The town of Guatapé is so colourful and pretty. Yes it is touristy but still nice. The boat ride on Laguna Guatapé is around fifty minutes and very relaxing with the scenery. It can get hot if you sit on the top deck. Our boat had music and you could purchase drinks too. We left Medellin around 07:00 in the morning and were back by 17:30. If you can, go on a Sunday as a lot of things are closed in Medellin on a Sunday and the town is pretty dead. Guatapé was buzzing!

    Stunning area
    Such a lovely area. Best seen from the top of El Penol. We also took a one hour boat tour on the lake around some of the islands but you don't really appreciate how beautiful the place is at eye level. Also as the commentary was only in Spanish we struggled to understand it.

    BEST tour experience!!!
    I strongly recommend this tour!! I recently visited Medellín with friends & this was a very special day for our group. It’s hard to believe we only paid $35 USD for this incredible experience.. Our tour guide was Marlin, and he was attentive, fun & eager to share interesting facts about Guatape. Transportation was great. It’s about a two hour drive from Medellín, but we stopped for breakfast & lunch along our journey, which gave us plenty of time to relax and fully enjoy the experience. The places we stopped at for food were also excellent. The meals were delicious and overall, the environment/hospitality are incredible!

    Must see near Medellín
    Fabulous experience on and viewing the water. Took a boat trip as part of day tour to Guatapé and the Piedra. Beautiful sites and interesting history. Highly recommend a visit. It’s spectacular to see it from the top of the Piedra.

This is one of my favourite places to visit. I love this place's vibe, the colours, the activities to do. I would go every weekend if I could! This is a must if you are visiting Colombia and Medellín.

we took the trip on boat also and was very relax to enjoy the view. There was a funny Trovador that we enjoy on the boat.
I wish the bathroom were more clean, my only concern.

I liked to climb the rock, do the tour in the lake, and have lunch at a restaurant near the lake. Nice views and exercise.

Hard climb but worth the work. Bring your walking shoes and camera and when you get to the top take a breath, have a beer, and enjoy the views

I am so happy I took the time to see this place! I did climb the many steps to the top but it was well worth it. I really added a lot of great photos to my trip. The sights are stunning. The memories are forever.

This was a great day trip. Guatatepe was great but the lagunas were so beautiful. There are little shops and restaurants that overlook the area.
