  • lovely place, with its narrow streets, churches and colored squares, surrounded by its riverfront and small eateries. Very accurate and almost all restored, and a small Cartagena, except that tourists will count with one hand the prices are low and surrounded by her placid River. fairy place

  • Mompox is a tiny Cartagena but more beautiful, more quiet, a beautiful sites, is the story of Colombia

  • Very secluded this city offers a limited geographical and architectural interest, however it allows to soak up the local atmosphere. Unbearable heat in the month of August.
