Welcome to Aracataca

While Cartagena and Mompós are the main Gabriel García Márquez destinations in Colombia, with gorgeous Mompós looking today pretty much as Macondo is described, Aracataca is a place for diehard fans to head to. This workaday and fairly unlovely town may not have much in terms of atmosphere or architecture, but it boasts the interesting and well-curated Casa Museo Gabriel García Márquez, a faithful reconstruction of the Nobel Prizewinner's childhood home.
