Guatape

(1,900+ reviews from 6 attractions)
Nature Historic Sites Trails
On the shores of a large artificial lake, Guatape ensures a pleasant experience in a quiet little town known for its friendly residents and attractive architecture. Popular with day-trippers from nearby Medellin, this lakeside community retains its quaint look and laid-back way of life, managing to make a living from tourism without succumbing to the worst aspects of commercialism and overdevelopment. Typical Guatape vacations include tours of the lake and the surrounding area that features boat rides, hikes, fishing excursions, and trips to hidden swimming holes and photogenic waterfalls. Our Colombia vacation builder allows you to plan your trip to Guatape and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
