What to Expect
Enjoy the view of a landscape of several lakes, emerald green, that cross diverse mountains and islands. During the ascent you will be able to know which step you are on, because they are all listed. To complement this trip, a good idea is to plan for the El Peñol-Guatapé reservoir, where you can opt for water sports or boat rides or jet skis and make a tour between islands and mountains to see the fauna and flora of the region , to contemplate the rock from different angles and to sail over what was the old town of Peñol (founded in 1714), the sign: a metallic cross that emerges from the water.

we offer 4 stops in this tour

My wife and I went on the Comuna 13 tour with Carlos, we very much enjoyed the tour and his insights to both the graffiti and the people who live in this part of Medellin. We were so impressed that we booked Carlos for the Guatape Tour the next day. This was also an awesome day.
