Cartagena has a modern skyline though most visitors come here to explore the old colonial walled city.

Where You're Docked

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/ Select Society and then Cruises.
