    Guatape

    December 2, 2018 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Just a 2h ride from Medellín, the beautiful village of Guatape is located, also know as the „most colorful town“ in Colombia.
    Guatape is truly easy on the eyes. Every house is painted in a bright color and has some ornaments, called „zolocs“, that represent the agricultural past or important things (eg. fruits, but also tuk tuks) for the people there.


    First, we stopped at „el Penol“, a viewpoint. It is a huge stone with stairs (659 to be exact), which you can climb to have a fantastic view over the surrounding. It is characterized by many lakes and truly beautiful.

    Later we had a stroll through the city and some seriously tasty vegan falafel.
    But our highlight was kayaking on one of the lakes and watching the sunset cruising around.
