Guatape and San Carlos Waterfalls

RIDE DESCRIPTION

Want to explore beyond Guatape? This trip is for you! San Carlos is a small pueblo near Medellín that hasn’t yet been discovered by many foreigners. But it’s a hidden gem surrounded by mountains, rivers, waterfalls and nature.

Itinerary

DAY 1 - MEDELLIN TO SAN CARLOS

Recommended Hotel: Hotel Campestre La Cascada

Leave Medellin in the morning then take a beautiful motorcycle trip out to San Carlos. San Carlos is a small pueblo near Medellín that hasn’t yet been discovered by many foreigners. But it’s a hidden gem surrounded by mountains, rivers, waterfalls and nature.

The motorcycle trip to San Carlos takes you through a winding unpaved road through the town of Granada. The road is totally beautiful with spectacular views. Sometimes there is mountain mist which makes the trip even more magical.

Once you get to San Carlos I recommend taking a hike to the La Viejita waterfall. La Viejita is a nature trail of approximately one mile (900 meters) with easy access and is one of the most beautiful trails in the area.

Towards the end of this trail there is a climb of over 120 steps to a waterfall of about 100 feet (30 meters) high. Sometimes there are even rappelling lines set up at this waterfall.

Climbing up further along the trail you come to a second waterfall known as “La Cascada” that has a pool of water at the bottom for swimming.

It is possible to drive to near these waterfalls in a moto taxi or car, but you miss the enjoyment of the hike through the nature preserve.

DAY 2 - SAN CARLOS TO GUATAPE THEN BACK TO MEDELLIN

Recommended Hotel: Hotel Zocal Campestre

Leave San Carlos in the morning and take a motorcycle ride out to the town of Guatape. Pretty much all the towns in Colombia are beautiful and this one is no exception. The only difference is that here you can visit the famous Piedra del Peñol.

 

This high granite monolith (technically an inselberg) rises from near the edge of the Embalse Guatapé. A brick staircase of 659 steps rises up through a broad fissure in the side of the rock. From the top there are magnificent views of the region, the fingers of the lake sprawling amid a vast expanse of green mountains.

I recommend climbing the rock at Guatape and having lunch then heading back to Medellin in the late afternoon.
