We were settling in for a day of work this Sunday, when a few people staying at our hostel asked us to join them on a trip to Guatapé, a small town in the mountains northwest of Medellín. They had a truck, so we couldn’t resist!
The main attraction of Guatapé is La Piedra Del Peñol, a granitic monolith that towers into the sky. You really have to see it to appreciate how massive this rock is.
Unfortunately, the battery in our phone was dead, unbeknownst to us, so we were unable to take pictures. But a fellow traveler, Merlijn from The Backpacking Chef, saved the day! This gallery of the views and the picturesque town nearby came from his camera.
