Laguna de Guatape, Medellin
(4.9/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • The view from the top of the rock is unbelievable! It is totally worth the "climb". You can chill, grab a drink and enjoy the amazing landscape. Can't be missed. 
  • There are several offices in Medellin, I take it in 70 career with the 45 tours, he is expectacular, take you to el peñol old, new, stone and then to Guatape, lagoon, has breakfast and lunch included, is wonderful this tour, it is a must to do it when traveling to Medellin.
