In Summary

Why this trip ?

25 years ago, the city of Medellin was one of the most dangerous in the world. Today, the city of the “Eternal Spring” is one of the most innovative metropolises in the world. Nearby we find the Piedra del Peñol, one of the most spectacular destinations in Medellin. The 740 steps of the staircase take us to the top of a rock nearly 200 metres high to enjoy breathtaking landscapes and beautiful surroundings. Guatapé is a small quiet village with a pleasant climate, famous for its church and its colourful facades and the skirting boards on the walls of all its houses. A perfect composition to create unforgettable moments during your getaway.
