If you decide to visit Guatape and San Rafael, you might also consider adding San Carlos. The town doesn’t have anything special to offer, albeit the main square is a pleasant place to hang out.
However, the surroundings offer lots of outdoor activities. Like in San Rafael, there are incredible rivers and waterfalls accessible without a guide like La Viejita, Los patios.
In addition to this, you can organize mind-blowing canyoning sessions with Eco-Guias – La Chorerra & Chispero.
We love the loop Guatape + San Rafael + San Carlos.
