Mompox dates from the same period as Cartagena, has a remarkable number of beautiful churches and is justly famed for its Easter Processions. This festivity is not as well organised as in Popayan in Colombia and certainly not as well as in Antigua Guatemala, but...More

Getting to Mompos is not easy as it takes several hours to reach, but it was perhaps my favorite place in Colombia because unlike Cartagena, which had massive tourism, Mompos still retains its old world charm. It is a place of truly great architecture that...More

Mompos is not the easiest place to get to, but the partly bumpy journey (from which ever direction) is worth the effort with some delightful scenery surrounding the town. There are some excellent examples of old colonial buildings - one of my favourites was the...More

Don't go there, you may spoil the uniqueness of this frozen place, frozen in time, remote, not easy to reach, quiet, hot like your best childhood days, in the midst of a natural scenery you think it would not exist anymore, so sweet and rich,...More

The town has a lot to offer, good food, good architecture and great history. It is going through a renovation process and you can see the changes. In a couple years it should be great. We took a trip through the river and were able...More

It is not large, has some truly nice silver jewelley shops, a beautiful center, and this slightly sleepy atmoshere of Carribean provinicial towns which larger hot-spots have lost. There are not many tourists.

This is definitely one of the most beautiful places I've seen so far in my travels around Colombia. Mompox has a rough around the edges kind of charm. The streets are suprisingly navigable, and I can easily walk to where I want to go because...More
