Cartagena, Columbia


Old Town, Cartagena

Introduction

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
