Has a really nice view of what it's supposed to be a lake or a reservoir. It's located upside of a cliff so you have to go upside by stairs. Nice experience but not relaxing. Once there you can drink a fresh beer and enjoy...More

More than worth the hike, 650+ steps for a view to admire. The surrounding area is gorgeous, unbelievable, awe striking!

Seeing the Guatape Lagoon from the top of the piedra del peñol was one of my highlights in Medellín. It’s a must-see, but I would recommend you to go during the week when it will be less crowded than during the weekend or early in...More

Guatape is a beautiful small town located in the outskirts of Medellin. It borders a reservoir built by the government around 1960. They decided to flood the area in order to create a hydroelectric dam. The town is very colorful, and it is famous for...More

Good leg workout with a rewarding panoramic view on top! You can turn back down on the way up if you change your mind but would certainly encourage to go all the way! Saw a mother climbing up while carrying a young child. You can...More
