Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 10+ 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.

  • Excellent plan to spend one or more days to 2 hours from Medellín, 80 km approximately. You can eat in a boat with a stroll through the dam or rent a jetsky if you want more adventure. Stroll the malecom where you will find different places to eat and walk through the village which is one of the most beautiful of Antioquia for their Sockets. Easy to get if you don't have truck is going to the bus terminal.
