  • Much talk of the beautiful thing that is Mompox, had not had the opportunity to meet him, except the trip by the side of Magangue, which is contingent on the passage in the "famous ferry" which has a set schedule, (eye not trusted in the). the city in the colonial part, but mostly ride next to the Magdalena river, especially in the afternoon. This city makes a delightful discovery. don't forget to write down it on your next trip, you won't regret it

  • Go soon to this place. It isn't spoiled yet by many tourists... nice people, friendly, beautiful historic center. 
  • A tour of the Center gives an idea of how it was to be an important town at the time of the colonies and then lapsed as a result of the silting up of the River Magdalena.
