Journey Overview

Step back in time in Mompox, a tranquil riverside town so steeped in history and tradition, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage site. “If to Caracas I owe my life, to Mompox I owe my glory,” reads an inscription on a statue of Simon Bolivar in the town square. Discover why it was the inspiration behind Gabriel Garcia Márquez’ seminal novel, One Hundred Years of Solitude. Soak up local life on streets lined with colonial architecture. Stop a while to watch artisans working with a gentleness that’s hypnotic. Once seduced by Mompox’s charm, you’ll be reluctant to leave.
