    Piedra Del Penol
    Stop: 10 hours - Admission excluded
    Guatape is located 1.5-hour from Medellin. This town opens a world of color among its streets, adorned with baseboards that tell stories of the town and its people. Guatape is also called the interior sea of Antioquia, the Acapulco of Colombia, the interior Cartagena, Paraíso Paisa, Remanso de Paz, the heart of Antioquia's East. It was named in honor of Cacique Guatapé, an inhabitant of this territory in the pre-Hispanic period. The Rock of Guatapé or Piedra del Peñol, is a monolith 220 meters high located in Guatapé (Antioquia, Colombia). The Stone of El Peñol was climbed for the first time on July 16, 1954 by an inhabitant of the area, Luis Eduardo Villegas López in the company of Ramon Diaz and Pedro Nel Ramírez. Until now, the stone still belongs to the Villegas family and you can access its summit by climbing 740 steps built in the monolith.

A MUST DAY TRIP!
Apr 2021 • Couples
If you come to Medellin please do not leave without doing this amazing tour.

Our tour guide Alex did a fantastic job educating us on the two small towns we visited Peñol and Guatape. The tour includes breakfast (right after pickup) which was much needed in the early morning. From there we went on to visit Peñol and the replica of Peñol, then we did a boat tour and got to see some beautiful homes. Afterwards we headed to the big rock (piedra del Peñol); my absolute favorite part. After an exhausting climb to the top we had a very delicious and traditional lunch on our way to Guatape. We finished the tour at the picturesque town of Guatape, this town is absolutely adorable and Instagram worthy!

Again absolutely amazing tour A MUST VISIT!

Ginna, our tour guide, was lovely! She explained us all the things in Spanish and English. She wad very patient and helpful.
The boat ride was nice! Going to the piedra del penol was a very cool experience! And climbing up the approx. 700 stairs was fun. Especially seeing the amazing view afterwards when on top. The last stop was in Guatape itself, which is a beautiful anf very colorful small town.
The tour lasted 11 hours, which is long, but was totally worth it! And: the lunch we got was also very good ;)
Thank you, Ginna :)

It was awesome. We moved up the tour time because of the current holiday curfews but it was perfect. We didn’t get any rain, the excursions were amazing, and our tour guide Ginna was excellent.

Tour Of A Lifetime
Mar 2021 • Solo
It was all amazing and a must if you are visiting Medellín, Antioquia! Guatapé city tour was my favorite! But to have breakfast and lunch included. An expert tour guide. Climbing the Piedra del Peñol’s 700 plus steps to reach the top and be rewarded with breathtaking views. And may photo ops along the ascent and decent. Words are not enough to describe this tour. You just have to take the tour for yourself and see!
