Caribbean coast and islands: Visit the Gabriel Garcia Marquez Museum

Visit the Gabriel Garcia Marquez Museum
The small provincial town of Aracataca is the birthplace of Nobel Prize winning novelist Gabriel García Márquez, who fictionalised it as Macondo in his most famous novel, 100 Years of Solitude

Today the family home where the author, who died in 2014, spent his early life is a museum dedicated to his stellar literary accomplishments. Visiting Aracataca itself is also an opportunity to experience the sedate rural life of a typical Colombian town.
