It was definitely worth the effort to go to Piedra Del Penol and Guatape. I would recommend working out the trip down on your own rather than go with a tour company as you'll save yourself lots of money and you can go at your...More

Excellent view from the summit. It worth to climb the 750 stairs. You can see the entire reservoir from the top.

Great rock and time. It's exercise time and I am not going to the gym because my legs are worked out from those steps!

675 steps up, but the views are definitely worth it. Very beautiful! There are a few cafés at the top (cool down with a beer or some ice cream)

This is place is simply amazing. Its a very long walk up the stairs and its usually very filled with tourists. You have to take transportation/tour from Medellin to get here, but its totally worth it! The view is stunning, photos don't really do it...More

Saw "The Rock". Big BIG ROCK. It had a nice view from the top. My camera took the best shots. The rock is just a rock. The view is the best part. Climb wasn't bad but entrance fee was a bit steep for me.

A great walk up to the rock, and absolutely stunning views. Easy to get to from town, we went by tuk tuk and collectivo on the return (which was slightly cheaper). An absolute must in Guatape and in my opinion, Colombia

A must do, It is really beautiful, but when you want to see sunrise, you’re a lost cause. The rock opens at 8am not 5am like advertised here. Sunrise from the parking lot is a beautiful 2nd option, but not the real deal!

This is a most go or see. Impressive rock and beautiful area with a lake. Dare to climb or go up the 700 plus steps up to the top.

To be honest don’t know but since Colombia is a very festive country probably not.

It depends for me I’m good but I would advise for you to take some, and it’s maybe 3 1/2 hrs drive. They also sell something very good call Mareol
