El Peñol or The Rock offers an excellent opportunity to appreciate the Guatapè Lagoon. You have to climb more then 700 stars in order to reach the top! But when you do it, the view is the perfect reward. The Rock but itself, is an amazing formation that weights around 600 millions of tons. It opens at 7:00 AM. At... 更多
While this attraction is more expensive than most in Colombia, it is well worth the $5 USD! Climbing the stairs is a challenge, but everyone in our group was able to make it up. Take a break if you need, but getting to the top is worth it! Absolutely amazing views of Guatape and surrounding countryside.

I was tempted to use the horse ride to the start of the steps, but decided otherwise. The whole journey itself is amazing. I was shocked looking at elderly 70 and 80 year old people going to the Peñol. It is a little exhausting, but definitely worth going up the Peñol. The view is amazing and beautiful. Once you're on... 更多
We thought about taking a tour here, to South America's famous monolith. But, since my traveling companion is from Antioquía and knows the area, we rented a car instead and took a leisure road trip here from Medellin for the day. Even if I wasn't traveling with a local, I'd still probably take this option -because I enjoy the freedom... 更多
