Laguna de Guatape, Medellin
(4.9/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • If you go to Medellin you must visit Guatape and el Peñón stone is a site with many attractions and interesting
    View original
  • Landscape green, lagoon, and cross-country peñol stone. Climate cool and fun that you can upload to the stone and then you can take a boat for a ride around the Lake.

  • Is actually falling in love when you get to the end of the last step of Piedra del Peñol. The attraction is outside of Medellin, in a town called Guatapé and the ride becomes a must for the tourist.
