Top tips for renting a car in Cartagena

  • Perhaps the best reason to rent a car during your time in Cartagena is the fact that they offer the most efficient means of getting from place to place. This is particularly the case if you want to enjoy some time at the beach. For example, Playa Blanca is just 28.7 km (17.8 miles) away from Cartagena and is a quick and simple trip via car.
  • Planning to rent a vehicle during your time in Cartagena? For travelers whose flights are landing at Rafael Núñez International Airport, the hire car desks are located in the National Arrivals Hall.
  • It is very common for pedestrians to jaywalk in Cartagena, especially on smaller urban streets and in residential areas. Drivers should make sure to keep their eyes open for jaywalkers, particularly when traffic is moving slowly or when you are in a popular section of town with many pedestrians around. This applies doubly to the old colonial area, as it is one of the tourism hubs in the city.
  • Rush hour in Cartagena is moderately serious, especially in central areas of the city. Typically, drivers can expect the morning rush hour to go from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. most mornings, and for the afternoon rush hour to start up shortly after 4:00 p.m. and cool down by around 6:00 or 7:00 p.m. 90A is one of the main roads to dodge during rush hour, especially around Chino, as it can become quite congested and backed up with traffic.
  • Book your rental car in Cartagena at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
