From beautiful colonial architecture to spectacular views from Peñón Rock: enjoy the best of Guatapé on this day trip from Medellin.

From beautiful colonial architecture to spectacular views from Peñón Rock: enjoy the best of Guatapé on this day trip from Medellin.

Guatapé Day Trip

We'll meet between 8 and 8:30 am at the meeting point of your choice. Then, we'll leave Medellín to head east. After a 1-hour ride, we'll make a stop to stretch our legs before continuing the trip.

After visiting Marinilla and building up your energy with a traditional lunch, you'll next head to La Piedra de El Peñol, or the Rock of Peñol, also known as El Peñón of Guatapé. This enormous monolith towers more than 200 metres (656 feet) above the surrounding countryside. You'll have an hour and a half of free time here, during which you'll have the opportunity to climb to the peak of the Rock. Climbing up the 740 steps gives you incredible panoramic views over the breathtaking Peñol Reservoir below.

The final part of your day trip involves a guided walking tour of Guatapé. Spend an hour and a half strolling through this picturesque colonial town, you'll discover its most emblematic landmarks and monuments, like the Church of Our Lady of Carmen and the colourful Plaza de los Zócalos square.

At the end of a day of sightseeing around Guatapé, you'll enjoy a boat ride through the Peñol reservoir. For 40 minutes, you'll drink in the surroundings of the place: an unforgettable image of Colombia's stunning natural heritage.

Then we head back to Medellin, putting an end to the tour.

Lunch

You'll have the choice of three different menu options for lunch:

  • Menu 1: rice, salad, potatoes, patacón (fried plantain) and trout. 
  • Menu 2: the same as Menu 1, but with grilled chicken instead of trout. 
  • Menu 3: rice, salad, beans and arepas with meat, chorizo and sausages.

If you require a vegetarian menu, please let your guide know on the day of the tour. This menu includes bean soup, rice, salad, patacón, eggs, avocado and arepas.

All dishes are served with a typical local drink: aguapanela, or sugar cane water, with lemon, a very popular natural soft drink in Colombia.
