Have never been to Cartagena and looking forward to doing my own thing that day.
I am wondering if there will be a shuttle bus from the Princess dock to the old town, or just to the harbor? Is it a free shuttle bus? Can I walk to the Old Town from the harbor or do I need a taxi? About how much will it cost?
If you are talking about Cartegena, Colombia. it's one of my favorite ports, but I would definetely hire a driver. The vendors are very persistant..lol.. We haven't been back for a few years, but many, many moons ago spent a week there.. and the last time we were there was on a cruise ship..There is so much to see and so many vendors to say "mas tarde"..lol.. If you just want to wander the old city.. I shouldn't see any problem.. we were there just as they were building or restoring.. there are/were some lovely restaurants behind those big doors..
I wouldn't walk anywhere in Cartagena by myself. I never felt so unsafe in any country like i did when we visited Cartagena!
Live life to the fullest because tomorrow may never come!
