Guatape

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. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Guatape trip itinerary using our Colombia vacation planner .

Where to stay in Guatape

Guatape offers a good range of lodging options, with many of its best hotels located near the central park and along the waterfront boardwalk.
