we took a single-day bus tour from Medellin--super value since it included breakfast, lunch and a guide (English guides need to be prearranged so check with the tour operator). Cost to climb the rock is extra but affordable. "The Rock" is in interesting natural phenomenon,...More

The views... they are -quite literally- amazing. I am still at a loss of words to adequately describe the natural beauty here. We didn't do the guided tour. It's not needed. A bus will take you from Medellin (or elsewhere) to town. From there transportation...More

"Don't Leave Medellin Without A Visit To This Laguna" - I think the title says it all. It is really beautiful. Hard to believe it's man-made (it's a resevoir). There are day tours and overnight tours, or you can head to Guatape and stay there...More

Guatape is well worth the time to visit and it's a beautiful view from the top of the rock. Bring sunscreen and enjoy!

The laguna is an amazing place to visit, you can walk up and down the boardwalk and enjoy the fresh air. The food there is awesome, make sure you have the fresh fish. The boat tour is not all that great, depends on what you...More

I was wondering about boat trips on the lake, I haven't been able to find any tours or tour prices for boating. We will be there in April and I am trying to budget for the trip. After we climb the rock we want to go out on a boat tour. Thank you for any help.
