Follow The Whole Process
We documented our project so you can follow the process of building a luxury home in Guatapé.
Originally a farming village, Guatapé is a burgeoning town for those seeking both the intrepid and indulgent. This colorful town outside of Medellín is famous for the turquoise waters of the Peñol Reservoir, lush landscape, and vibrant culture. The goliath volcanic rock, La Piedra del Peñol, is a stunning centerpiece providing scenic views of the mountainous region. Yes, you can hike to the top!
While strolling the cobblestone walkways through town, colorful zócalos line the colonial-style shops and homes. These art panels display the traditional storytelling of the village and have helped the town with its namesake of being the most colorful town in the world. Indulge in the local street food and enjoy cocktails on a floating bar!
Water sports are a must, whether that means swimming, boating, jet skiing, or playing on a floating playground. It’s common to navigate to town by the water where you can enjoy a meal in town. Then enjoy a leisurely cruise during sunset, and wind down the evening with calming views of the water.
