Incredible place!! There’s a lot of steps to get to the top, but once you’re up there, it’s sooo worth it.

This is well worth a visit. Amazing to see the flooded valley and climb the pinto rock. A great place to have coffee etc can go on the lake with boat tours as well

I spent a day in Guatape just over a week ago. The views are spectacular. I took advantage of a boat tour through the lake.

top destination from medellin - take the public bus to get here, very cheap for 2 hour ride. make sure you book your trip back before it gets too late so you're not stuck in guatape longer than you want to be there

The view was amazing!! The walk to the top was not as bad as we thought it would be and took about 15-20 minutes. There was a nurses station half way up! haha! It is definitely worth the hike!

Nice to visit if you have time but I think pictures are better than reality . If you are around , better visit the town Guatapé

We used a private tour which picks you up and drops you back at your hotel. On the drive you to Guatape, makes a couple of stops in-between, narrates a quite a bit of the town's history and takes you to lunch by the lake... More
