There is one bus that drives around the city and stops at 11 stops and continues around. So if you get off, the bus will come back around in 90 minutes which is usually plenty of time to get to see what you stopped off to visit. You also have 2 days to use the pass which is a nice... More

We did get off in old town, and enjoyed seeing the... More

It took us 1 hour waiting in the first stop to get on the bus. This service might be the only one that has English and Spanish narration. This... More

The big red bus like in many cities takes you all over the city stopping at various attractions and its hop on and hop off.......with no extra charge. The Red bus charges $40 pp for an entire day; It's a bit expensive considering the local bus fares...but then again....it helps you figure out where to go without trial and error;... More

Cartagena de Indias Colombia, beautiful city with great people, good food, and excellent attention. Cartagena is a city with a lot of history, with a great fortress around the city. You can find beautiful emerald jewelry.
