This tour will take you to one of Colombia’s must-see attractions: the massive rock La Piedra de Guatapé, also known as El Peñol or simply La Piedra (The Stone). Merely a one-and-a-half-hour drive east of Medellín, the rock is located right next to the Peñol-Guatapé Dam, near the border of the towns Guatapé and El Peñol. You’ll be breathless after climbing up the 649 stairs – not only because of the hike but also the astonishing view!
Back at the bottom, you’ll have a closer look at the environment and capture its beauty from different perspectives. You'll also get to hear the story about the letters G and U imprinted on the north side of the rock, telling us about two cities claiming El Peñol as their own.
Later, you'll visit the gorgeous colorful town of Guatapé. Walking down its cobblestone streets, you’ll admire the decorative panels at the base of the houses. In Guatapé you’ll also taste a delicious meal in one of the nicest traditional restaurants with the best local ingredients.
After a good hike, and a walk through the town of Guatapé, you'll return to Medellín.
