DescriptionBenefit from hotel pick-up in Medellín at 09:00 AM, and then journey by comfortable, private air-conditioned SUV to the great rock of El Peñol in the municipality of Guatapé, Antioquia. Learn all the intricacies of Colombia's history, culture and landscape on the 2-hour drive to the rock. Get explanations from your bilingual guide to accompany the incredible views of the rock during several stops along the way. Climb to the top of the rock with your guide for stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Then, head into the picturesque town of Guatapé to look at the homes and buildings of vibrant colors. Go to the promenade just 2 blocks from the main square, and enjoy a brief stroll caressed by the cool breeze from the lake. Enjoy lunch at one of the many restaurants by the water, and join an optional party boat ride around the lake (depending on time and how quickly guests take to climb up and down the rock). Next, visit a replica of the old town of El Peñol and see models of important sites, such as the church and town hall before the town was flooded in the late 1970s to create the Peñol-Guatapé reservoir. Head out to the regions of Rionegro, Llanogrande and El Retiro to encounter more of Colombia's beautiful landscapes and appreciate nature, now intertwined with new dwellings. Journey back to Medellín towards the end of the afternoon, and get dropped off at your hotel at approximately 04:45 PM.
