During our visit to the Cartagena Mud Volcano, we met some Irish friends on the shuttle who told us that we had to go to Taganga, Colombia. So with a desire to ditch Cartagena for a weekend, we booked a shuttle and headed East.
The trip from Cartagena to Taganga is only 2-3 hours, but shuttles work quite differently here. They’re more like taxis. They go around and pick you up at your hotel, apartment, hostel, etc and drop you off in the city you’re going to at your exact hotel, apartment, hostel, etc. Plus they stop at bigger cities in between and do the same. Needless to say, a 3 hour trip can turn into 5-6 real easy.
