Buses to Cartagena
From Bogotá , Bucaramanga, Cúcuta, Medellín, Cali and the coffee region (Armenia, Manizales and Pereira), Cartagena is interconnected by the Troncal del Magdalena Medio and Troncal del Caribe highways that connect it to the north with Barranquilla, Santa Marta and Riohacha and reach Paraguachón, on the Venezuelan border.
Two roads can be used from Barranquilla to Cartagena: the road to La Cordialidad and the road to the sea.
The first is the oldest and most traditional and the one usually taken by interdepartmental buses; and the second, the most recent, runs parallel to the sea, ends in the north of the city near the airport, and is the one taken by the small authorized companies of collective service.

Buses (destination Centro or Parque del Centenario) do not enter the centre.
Ask the driver to warn you where to get off (near the old city walls).
Mini Vans Puerta a Puerta (Door to Door)
These Colectivos can take you approximately every hour from Cartagena to Barranquilla ($27,000), Santa Marta ($49,000), Taganga ($46,000) or Palomino ($75,000).
It is much more convenient and faster than the bus (due to the distance from the terminal).

Find out about the reputation of the boat. Sailing conditions depend a lot on the season. From December to March the trade winds blow and the sea can be rough. During the rest of the year, there may be scattered thunderstorms and rain, but the wind is noticeably less strong. The low season runs from August to November, when rates are lower.
