Got a good deal on a local taxi ride throught the city. He took us to all the highlights and was very polite and knowledgeable about the history of the city. Plus the taxi was airconditioned!!
No cruises added
Nice, clean little town. Again found a local taxi to show me the sights. Enjoyable port.
WAY too hot for me! I know the street merchants want to sell you everything, but this was ridiculous. You couldn't walk 10 feet without being pestered to buy something. Glass bottom boat ride was excellent however. And cooler!
Only excursion I took from the ship. Should have found another taxi ride. The tour guide was horrible. She let scenic sights go by while making sure time and again that we knew we were in Cartagen, Columbia. Where else were we supposed to be?? And she had the bus driver drive us right up to specific stores for our "shopping pleasure". What a rip off. While in the courtyard of the church she spent the last 15 minutes of the tour telling us about the shopping in Boca Grande. Everyone was wilting in the heat. We had run out of the water we'd been given at the start of the tour. And when we finally got to Boca Grande she again had the driver stop right in front of a specific shop and she even opened the door of the shop to usher us in!! I asked if there was a little grocery store where I could get a soda and she said she show me "later" after the jewelry store. Think she had a little something on the side with that shop?? I found what I wanted on my own. Emily is tour guide.
Private guide to see crocadiles, monkeys and such. The only way to go.
Got off the ship in the evening only. Really not worth it.
Been here before. Always enjoy it. Lots to see and do. Had a friend take my around. Nice way to sightsee!
