What’s the best way to get around Barranquilla?
Taking a taxi is surprisingly an affordable way to explore Barranquilla. Otherwise, buses are cheap; however, make sure to carefully plan your route so you don’t end up lost somewhere. Keep in mind the bus station is quite far out of the city too, so you may need another transfer or a taxi to make the rest of the journey if you are venturing further out.
