Guatape is famous for its Zocalos which decorate the base of almost all buildings. A professional Zocalo artist smilingly admitted that there is considerable social pressure to pay for one on your house. Initially, the local government subsidized them, but these days the owner bears...More

Well worth a trip from the airport or up fro Medellin. We enjoyed visiting the village in both day and evening hours while staying in a beautiful lakeside finca a few kilometers away. The brightly painted friezes on all the buildings, the narrow cobblestone streets,...More
