What people are saying about El Peñón de Guatapé

It was a perfectly organized tour. We enjoyed the time. Especially our host at glamping Andrea was very cool, nice and took part and a short hike to the highest point in the area. I recommend the Guatapé tour combined with glamping to anyone looking for some peace and quiet during Medellin parties. Food and nature… perfect! The tents are spacious. Only the beds are a bit small for taller people. Thank you and gladly again.

We loved our experience with Top 10! The day trip to Guatape was amazing. Our guides were knowledgable and we felt like we had good use of our time there. The glamping was AMAZING. We felt very looked after, the views were spectacular and everything about the Finca was perfect. Couldn’t recommend it enough!

A private paradise; a dream corner in Guatape. Our incredible hostess, very attentive staff and complete services. The food very rich. Comfortable and clean facilities. I really recommend the place and without hesitation we would return !!

Este lugar es hermoso, una experiencia increíble, el lago es bello, los host son súper amables y simpáticos. Vale cada centavo. Dormir en el agua es una experiencia increíble, recomendado 100%.
