The heat in Mompox is overwhelming; if you find yourself needing to cool off, take a break in a hammock under a shady tree and wait for the breeze to blow in from the Magdalena River. In this town, it’s a good idea to relax and let your imagination soar as you slowly walk the streets, with their white facades and gridded windows.
NEARBY ATTRACTIONS AND ACTIVITIES
Walking the streets and admiring the colonial architecture of its buildings, learning about the art of filigree gold and exploring nearby swamps are among the plans for travellers to Mompox.
