Our Expert Guide will take us to visit the town of Guatapé, a must-see for everyone coming through Medellín! From the city, we will drive an hour and a half while winding between towering Andean mountains until reaching this magical village hidden in the hills of Antioquia. We will explore this fascinating town and discover the most beautiful dam in Colombia, Guatapé Dam.

But before moving on to Guatapé, we'll stop by the heroic city of Marinilla, known as the Colombian Sparta. Here we will learn about one of the most interesting chapters in the history of Colombia: Spain on Colombian soil. We will tour the main park, exploring national monuments from the colonial era.

We will continue our journey through the Andes, and soon arrive at our second destination: the Rock of Peñol, an enormous monolith that springs from the heart of the Paisa mountains, subject to various mythical stories due to its particularity. We will climb 740 steps zigzaging to the highest peak, from where we will appreciate majestic 360 degree views, along with the stunning Guatapé Reservoir.

Our last destination will be the most colorful town in Colombia: the beautiful town of Guatapé, also known as the zócalos village. This place is full of fascinating stories, friendly people, and colorful houses.

Join us to discover a village surrounded by calm waters which bathe the encompassing mountains that protect it. You'll explore these same waters that one day invaded the mountain's true home, which is now just a memory of a flooded village.
