What people are saying about El Peñón de Guatapé

I would say that this was an excellent experience although they were at the very beginning of their start-up they were very eager to make sure that we are always comfortable and that we were happy they made a very good dinner and a very good breakfast the boat ride was exhilarating and at all times they made you feel like the place was yours I took a moment to hop in the hot tub and enjoyed it as well the views are breathtaking and the Privacy is unbelievable basically you could do anything you want at this location

The place is really fantastic! After 20 minutes of asking about a great calm lake you arrive at the glamping. No less than two tents and a house of the owners. They are so helpful, cook well and there is a very relaxed atmosphere. We would go again!

Amazing experience! Our guides were extremely welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed for a night a relaxation on the water. I highly recommend spending a night glamping when visiting Guatape. It was honestly the highlight of our trip.

It went super well for us, we had no problem, the guides were super friendly
