Mompox, one of Colombia's two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, is a rare destination in today's shrinking world; a truly unadulterated glimpse back into a realm of wonderfully preserved Colonial 16th century architecture and simpler times. As a small but intrepid family from Seattle, USA, we knew this trip would be exotic, but the best surprise was our home base of Casa Amarilla. Inn-Keepers, Richard and Alba, were deeply hospitable and efficient, ever responsive to all guests needs. What we loved most about our stay, aside from twilight on the terrace, feeding howler monkeys (and baby) outside the main door, and dancing in the new year with a great Cumbia band, was the ever-revolving door of truly interesting travelers. In our week we met everyone from the very well heeled of Colombian society to Germans who were circumnavigating the globe on their vintage bikes, to an activist Northern Irish couple who gave us pointers on their favorite vendors, to the professional class from Bogota, and of course, the requisite bright and youthful backpackers from around the globe. To ensure your richest experience while in Mompox, Casa Amarilla is the best stop and best value.
