Although Cartagena offers a cheap Metrocar service, it's not recommended for tourists – it could potentially be dangerous due to the zones it passes through.
The app gives visitors the convenience of ordering a car wherever and whenever they’d like, and is generally cheaper than taxis.
Taxis in Cartagena are quite affordable: Bocagrande to Old City (less than 4km) is approximately US $3-$4. The minimum ride is COP $6.500, which is around US $2. You can also negotiate to hire them for longer trips at an agreed-upon price.
