Full description
Depart Medellin early in this morning on an 11-hour trip to Guatape. Stop at a small café in Guarne for a refrigerio, the local version of a continental breakfast.

Enjoy a short walking tour in the historic center of Marinilla before continuing the scenic drive to the Piedra del Peñol. You’ll have 1.5 hours to climb the 742 steps to the top of the historic rock and return to the base.

If you do not want to climb to the top, there is plenty to do at the base, with many shops selling local artisanal goods and many cafés as well.

Enjoy a traditional lunch at the Piedra del Peñol or along the boardwalk in Guatape. Take a guided tour of Guatape, and then spend an hour exploring on your own.
