Located just a two-hour drive from Medellín, the tiny, picturesque town of Guatapé is a popular weekend getaway for city dwellers looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the metropolis and cool down a little. Guatapé, on the edge of a chain of man-made lakes in the rolling green hills of the coffee region, practically begs visitors to grab a cold drink, take a seat and slow down a little.
Though the town mostly comes to life on weekends, it also has a certain charm during the week, when just the locals stay around and there are only a few restaurants open – all serving the same half-dozen plates typical to the region. Whatever the day, Guatapé is a great stop for anyone passing through Medellín. Grab an early bus out of the city for a day trip, or plan to spend the night and make a weekend out of it. Whatever you do, don’t forget the sunscreen!
