Cartagena de Indias is a city on the northern coast of Colombia.

Hitchhiking out

Towards Baranquilla, Medellín

The one trunc road to Baranquilla and Medellín is the one going past the castle. At La Bomba del Amparo, there is one splitting (Baranquilla-Medellín), if you head down to Medellín some kilometers there is another turnoff to Baranquilla and a good place to hitch.

Another option is to take the road to Baranquilla 4kms past the turnoff to the bus station (Terminal) to a police stopping. Here the cars slow down and often you may get a chance to talk to the drivers.

Towards Panama

There are 2 marinas in Cartagena. Try to get a yacht to Portobello Panama, this is not easy though.

Personal Experiences

I made the mistake of taking the road directly south to Turbaco. I walked all the way to that next city without a single ride. But there were no trucks! Don't make the same mistake, find the truck road. -Chael777
