DescriptionSpend a day visiting the municipality of Guatapé, the city of many names: known variously as the interior sea of Antioquia, the Acapulco of Colombia, the interior Cartagena, Paraíso Paisa (paradise country), Remanso de Paz (haven of peace) and the heart of Antioquia's East, the city was actually named in honor of Cacique Guatapé, an inhabitant of this territory in the pre-Hispanic period. Spend a day visiting this growing and colorful city, made unique by the decorative tiles adorning the lower facade of the houses. The highlight of your trip will be a visit to the Rock of Guatapé (Piedra del Peñol), a monolithic rock 220 meters high, which was worshiped by the former indigenous inhabitants of the region. Composed of quartz, feldspar and mica, the rock was climbed for the first time on July 16, 1954 by an inhabitant of the area, Luis Eduardo Villegas López - and the stone still belongs to the Villegas family. You can now access its summit by climbing 740 steps built into the monolith. For the third part of the day, enjoy a 1-hour boat tour through the reservoir with crossover music. See panoramic views of Casa Museo, La Cruz, Piedras del Marial, Piedra del Peñol and the ruins of the Pablo Escobar's vacation home. Throughout the whole day, you'll be accompanied by a knowledgeable guide.
