Guatape, Colombia was not something that we had planned, but a short 2 hour bus ride from Medellin seemed like nothing compared to our longer bus rides. We were glad we made the trip and decided to spend 3 days in Guatape to enjoy the small town and visit some of the sights nearby. One of the highlights of our 3 days was a visit to La Piedra del Penon, a large granite rock that you can climb to the top for 360 views of the surrounding lake and small hills. We spent quite a bit of time at the top enjoying the views on a beautiful afternoon. The town of Guatape is filled with little shops, restaurants and many colorful buildings. It was a nice little town to walk around, but also very busy because of the Colombian holiday weekend.
