Guatape is the number one day trip from Medellin with good reason! This is a day trip that has amazing views, stunningly cute streets and homes, great coffee and lake trips – all in one! Here is everything you need to know to have a great Guatape Medellin Day Trip!

Guatape Medellin – How to Get There and Get Around

There are quite a few tour companies who offer a guided day trip to Guatape. I was a bit put off these because it was a very long day! The trips kicked off early eg 745am and got back late. Also, they tend to include breakfast and lunch stops, other random little towns on the way, forced shopping etc etc which kind of put me off. However, these can be a great option if you are not in the mood to figure out how to do things and like making a bigger day.

Upon investigation, it is quite easy to get yourself to and from Guatape and have a more flexible day and most importantly not such an early start! Buses leave from the North Bus Station (which is quite a distance from El Poblado) in Medellin. Go to counter 9 or 14 – several bus companies sell tickets to Guatape or La Piedra.
