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.
You'll get the best and most comfortable cars, sometimes with English-speaking drivers. Price is arranged with drivers or directly with the company they work for.
If you're traveling to nearby cities like Barranquilla or Santa Marta, there's the option of renting a shared bus or mini-van, which offers door-to-door service.
