Nice day trip from Medellín. Easy to reach from the northern bus terminal for approximately 13000 p.p. And takes between 1,5 and 2h. Entrance fee is 18000 p.p. Guatape, is a nice little town with loads of options for food.

The place has a extremely beautiful view of the nature. But, there are not too much to do on the Peñor. The positive thing is the "Cerveja Michelada", a beer with green mango, salt and lemon. It is very tasty.
