If you’re going to Guatape by car, the journey will take about 1.5 hours. If you’re going by helicopter, it’ll take less than 20 minutes!
You’ll be able to choose between a one-way trip, or a round-trip. For those who want to spend several hours exploring the town, a one-way trip would be ideal. You can take your time enjoying yourself, and then catch a bus back to Medellín. This gives you the chance to not only explore the town, but also to check out La Piedra del Peñón, a 220-meter-high rock that’s one of the area’s most famous landmarks.
A round-trip helicopter tour will give sightseers about an hour or two in Guatape, which is plenty of time to walk around the center, snap some photos, and taste some of the best artisanal coffee in Colombia.
