Private transfer from BAQ to Cartagena (and beyond!)

My wife, 19 year old daughter and I will be flying to BAQ in early July and need transportation to Cartagena. From what I have read, the MarSol vans may not be the best choice for us. We can (I think) afford a private driver/taxi from the airport, but are not sure how to arrange this in advance. Should we just try to work through the hotel or are there dependable services out there that we can book in advance?

How much would it cost (and low long would it take) for each of the following?

1. BAQ to Cartagena?

2. Cartagena to Santa Marta (or Tayrona)?

3. Santa Marta to BAQ?

Thank in advance for any advice. We are really looking forward to visiting Colombia.

Marsol;try a search on here with your query;short of that try Marsol.

They're pretty good at getting back to their Facebook messages;albeit in Spanish.

Thanks. I was hoping to get a private car and driver (as opposed to the shared MarSol vans)

No need to google him;just pump JJ the tour guide into a T.A. Cartagena search and you'll get his reviews and contact info...
