Laguna de Guatape, Medellin

4.7
#2 of 14 in Nature in Antioquia Department
Cast your gaze out over Laguna de Guatape from atop the area's most distinctive landmark, Penol Rock. Stand at the top of the 200 m (656 ft) tall rock, which has a zigzag staircase carved into its side, to fully appreciate the sprawling lake, which carves any number of channels into the surrounding land. If you're after an adrenalin rush, you can zipline across the lake, or tear across its surface on a speedboat. Visit the two monasteries perched on the lake for a more spiritual experience. Laguna de Guatape is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Medellin Edition.

  • Tour stopped at a few towns that where uninteresting and could be skipped. The town of Guatape has water sports and zip linning but tour only gives you 2 hrs to visit.  more »
  • Wonderful! looks like a picture of so well done. The best view and from the Piedra del Peñol. Is breathtaking. I don't recommend the tours of the dam. You lose a lot of time to a not so pretty sight. If you do the ride, some people spend more time on Piedra or another viewpoint.
