A hydroelectric dam, the huge rock of Peñón de Guatape and the sweeping views of the horizon it offers from the top, create the charm of the town. The drive to Guatape is what makes the place more worthwhile, thanks to the beautiful Colombian countryside lined with small towns, farms, hills and friendly people.
If you wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Sabaneta, located about 10 miles to the west is your ideal destination. Dine in the charming open-air cafes and explore the wilderness of La Romera Ecological Park and María Auxiliadora Sanctuary.
