Great Views! I am not sure if El Penol is worth the money though as it just offers a bit more then you can see if you didnt pay

A must see outside of Medellin! A two hour journey from Medellin bus station. Only 770 steps to the top of El Penol (it didn't actually take that long- around 20 minutes but you can certainly feel the altitude). No need to book a tourist...More

Well worth the 1.5 hrs it took us to get there from Medellin. Incredible views. Exhausting climb but you get rewarded with the views. If going out there then have to go into downtown Guatape for lunch and relaxation. Great day trip to get out...More
