What you'll do

We will begin our experience taking you from Guatapé to the facilities of our yacht club. There we will have a 15 minute talk about the trip we will be taking. Then we will rig up the boat and sail on board the SYMPHONY sailboat which is 28 feet long with the capacity of carrying 8 people, including children and pets. We will then be showing you the important tourist sites that are only seen from the water. The trip takes about three hours starting from 2:30 pm. If it's your first time on a sailboat we will ensure that you get the experience of what you have to do to sail a sailboat. You can participate in the rig up of the sails, learning knots, steering the boat etc. If you do not want to participate in these activities, simply enjoy the ride with the beautiful surroundings of the lake. During the tour we will make sure you have fruits, snacks and Colombian beers. At the end of the trip we will head back to the club and take you back to the arrange location.

The short version of this review is really easy: This was a great tour and I highly recommend it. If you are looking for activities in Guatape, this is a great choice. Long version: Essentially this was a private sailing lesson given by a man whose passion is sailing. Rene owns and operates a sailing school and his knowledge of sailing is quite impressive. After spending the first half of the trip learning about sailing and piloting the boat, Rene took the helm and my friend and I were able to enjoy the great views and weather, sipping beer (provided) and aguardiente (which we brought). Afterwards Rene invited us to have empanadas with him in town - a wonderful end to an already great trip.

On our five week trip around South America, this was definitely one of the highlights! My partner and I booked the tour with René the day before, without a hitch. He picked us up promptly in the main square and drove us to the yacht. We went mid-week, so we pretty much had the lake to ourselves – with stunning views across the lake and of La Piedra del Peñol. Neither of us had ever sailed before, but were keen to learn. René is an experienced teacher, and perfectly blended patient instructions with a ‘throw you in the deep end’ style. After half an hour of practicing, we were out cruising on the lake sharing local beers and trying out local snacks. Overall, an incredible experience with fantastic company and great conversation (in English) – we finished up by heading back into town and sharing a few arepas with René for dinner before heading home.

Rene was kind and knowledgeable. The history of this artificial lake is amazing. Beautiful angles of El Peñon Rock. Best to leave earlier as it got somewhat chilly around 5pm. Would have liked to spend a night in the quaint village of Guatape which has many hostels and superbe food. Overall a very pleasant

Amazing experience in a gorgeous place. Rene is very attentive and knowledgeable. He allowed us to interact as much or as little as we wanted with him which made us feel like we were secluded and private. He carefully picked the best snacks for us and good local drinks. What a great time! Bring warm clothes or something to layer on because it can get windy and cold.

Awesome sailing experience on a beautiful lake outside of Medellin. He picked us up at the dock at our house. I would definitely do this again!
