1. Medellin: Guided Tour to Guatape & 1-Night Lakeside Glamping

Meet at Park Poblado early in the morning and take a bus tour of the valley to the picturesque colonial town of Guatape. Stop at the famous Penol Rock along the way and climb up 740 steps for the most incredible views. Visit the town of Guatape, where your tour guide will explain the history behind this vibrantly colorful town. Have a traditional lunch in the historic town before embarking on your own personal speedboat for a brief tour of the lake. Set up camp at your fabulous glamping location on the lake and your guide will explain what adventures await. Go hiking atop Paradise Mountain for breathtaking views of the sunset before enjoying a delicious dinner. Then after an amazing night falling asleep to the sounds of nature, wake up fresh and early the next for some of the best coffee in the world. Then, take the kayak out to the waterfall, try some wakeboarding in the smooth water of the morning, or just relax at the glamping site. Take a speedboat ride back to Guatape at about noon. Enjoy some free time before your transfer back to El Poblado in Medellín.

What people are saying about Guatapé

This tour was amazing from start to finish, while on the bus ride over there the tour guide will inform you of various landmarks you pass on the way. Once you get to the first destination which is the rock, you can choose to climb it which I completely recommend, the views from up there are amazing. Then you get to walk around the town of guatape which is beautiful & to finish it all of you then go to your campsite on a speed boat, which was amazing & to me it literally made my trip 100x better. You’ll meet Andrea and her daughter isabel who are the most welcoming & loving people I’ve ever met. They make sure you have a good time while you stay at their finca and make you feel like your at home. Everything was perfect for me at the camping site, it’s the best activity I’ve done in Colombia. I have literally no complains, the only downside is that I did not book it for longer. But I will definitely be back soon!

Everything was great from start to finish, I didn't want to leave! Guatape is the perfect place to escape for some peace, quiet, relaxation, and nature. From the boat ride to/from the glamping site, to the food and drinks, to the coziness of the glamping site itself, to the many activities available (we went hiking, wakeboarding, and tubing) - everything was excellent! But the thing that made this experience special was the hospitality provided by JJ and Andrea! They make you feel like friends instead of guests :) One night was definitely not enough time, and I feel like it's such a great value as it also includes meals, transportation to/from Medellin, access to the Penol Rock, and a Guatape walking tour. Do yourself a favor and book this activity...you won't regret it!

Important to know that the guided tour to Guatapé is with one touring agency and the glamping is with another. The glamping was AMAZING. The pictures truly do not give this place justice. In addition, the food is included and it is home made (great food). The hospitality was also very much appreciated. If I would have known the experience was going to be this good, I would have booked another night for sure.

Very good experience…the campsite is very clean and comfortable, the food is delicious…Andrea and JJ are excellent hosts. I highly recommend it

The tour was very nice. The absolute highlight was the glamping, very quiet and pleasant and you could still do everything possible.
