If you are traveling to Medellin, Colombia…then you MUST visit the Guatape Rock and Guatape City (Click here for my post on Guatape City).
Guatape Rock is the most fascinating site I’ve ever seen. To get to the top of the rock, you must climb 740 steps. Sounds like a lot…but we took our time and it took us 15 minutes to get to the top. Once you get to the top, go in the red building and climb the stairs there to the very top. There you will find step 740 and the best view you’ve ever seen in your life.
Not only was the rock beautiful, but it was also the most relaxing place I’ve ever been…even more relaxing than Honeymoon Beach in St. John B.V.I. I can’t explain why but, time simply stood still up there. There was barely any noise. The weather was perfect. I didn’t want to leave. I wanted a hammock and a book. I will never forget this experience and only regret I didn’t schedule more time for the rock.
