Photo Gallery: El Peñol and Guatape

El Penol Rock


See Colombia (and our little Chiva Viajera) spent last week enjoying the sunny Antioquia countryside in Guatape. We were there to enjoy the 13th Annual Hikers Convention, but there was plenty of time to appreciate the tourist attractions of the area: El Penol Rock, Guatape town, and the Embalse (reservoir). We had a a great time, and we’ll be publishing a trip report about Guatape next week, but for now, here are some of our favourite photos from the trip.

El Penol View
But it’s worth it for the view…


Guatape Embalse
The view takes in the gorgeous blue waters of the Embalse de Guatape


Hotel Los Recuerdos
And after all that climbing you’ll need a rest…Hotel Los Recuerdos wasn’t a bad spot for that


The little town of Gutape is famous for it’s bright colours


Guatape Zocalos
And for it’s myriad zocalos


El Penol Antioquia
And wherever you go, your eyes are drawn back to El Penol


Chiva and Chiva
And, just to finish off, here’s our Chiva Viajera with a new friend…


Thanks to medellin.travel and Gobernacion de Antioquia for inviting See Colombia and La Chiva Viajera to Guatape to enjoy all of its variety and beauty. We can’t wait to come back and explore even more of Antioquia’s gorgeous countryside.
