Cartagena has a modern skyline though most visitors come here to explore the old colonial walled city.
Where You're Docked
Ships dock at the commercial port about a mile and a half southeast of the old town. Because of the dodgy port area, it is advised to take a taxis and not walk. The official taxi rate to centro is 15,000 pesos though it may be cheaper (7,000 pesos) for taxis outside the gate (2011). Cruise schedule here http://www.apc.es/conexiones.php?reg=10&ind=2
Money and Tipping
The old city is small and walkable. Taxi drivers wait outside the port gate.
