Full description

Enjoy the lakeside in Guatape and spend the night glamping on this excursion from Medellin, which just opened. Meet up at Park Poblado early in the morning and take a bus tour of the valley to the picturesque colonial town of Guatape. Stop at the famous Penol rock along the way and climb up 740 steps for the most incredible views (optional).

Visit Guatape, where your tour guide will explain the history behind this vibrantly colorful town. Have a lunch stop in town before embarking on your own personal speedboat for a brief tour of the lake. Enjoy a 4x4 ride instead if the weather doesn't allow for the boat ride.

Set up camp at your fabulous glamping location on the lake and take some free time to do whatever you want. Go on a boat tour to interesting local spots, try some wakeboarding, tubing, or kayaking, or just relax on the beach and go swimming. Go hiking atop Paradise Mountain for breathtaking views of the sunset before enjoying a delicious traditional dinner.

Wake up early the next day for the morning hike and enjoy the clean mountain air, or sleep in and have breakfast in bed. Get a speedboat ride back to Guatape at the end of your tour, where you'll be transferred back to Park Poblado in Medellin.

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

JJ was very friendly, picked us up in Guatapé just after the tour and welcomed us at his house on the lake just as if it was our own. The floating room is very comfy, well equipped, with a breathtaking view and above all : intimate and remote, no one can see you. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, the birds singing, the beauty of the surrounding nature. Just perfect (even with the rain). We absolutely recommend it!

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.
