We will be 2 women traveling to Cartegena in July. Upon landing, where do we pick up the taxi to go downtown Cartegena?What type of taxi do we look for? Are they safe?. Are the prices consistant or do u need to barter? Do we tip? Thank you in advance for any information

The taxi stand is directly outside the terminal. There will be a line and a man managing the allocation. Make sure you obtain the price to where you are going. It will be about 12 k to areas in the old city. Yes they are safe generally but make sure the taxi driver is aware you know the price stated by the man who allocates you the taxi. Unfortunately they are not metered in Cartagena.

Tipping not necessary however a lot of people don't worry about collecting the small (coin) change.

Actually, fares to the walled city range between 8800 and 11000 pesos. Note also there is a 700 peso surcharge at night.

But the basic answer is "very cheap." Taxis in Cartagena are a bargain.
