6. Take a day trip to the lake town of Guatape
This scenic small town is only a short car ride away from Medellín. It’s also a must-see! You can get there by taxi, bus, rent a car, or a myriad of other options. I must confess that I was a bit skeptical before going, but I can confidently say it was worth it. It was one of the highlights of my whole Medellín experience, and there is so much to do and see there. You can expect low prices, fun activities, breathtaking nature and delicious food. I actually wrote a whole blog post on things to do there, which you can check out here, or watch the video here. I’d say you can definitely spend much more than 24 hours there, but if you’re only visiting Medellín for a short amount of time, a day trip is a must-do.
