If you need laundry service, the Administrator Maria Cristina rent a washing machine for $5.000 pesos an hour, also there is a “lavanderia” just 5 minutes from the studios. It’s located on Carrera 1, just a few steps past Calle 70, in the direction of the beach/ocean. It costs $6,000 COP per pound of clothes, for pick up the next day. It’s $12,000 COP per pound of clothes, for pick up on the same day. They are open Monday to Saturday. The Administrator rent a washing machine for $5.000 pesos an hour.
From Crespo, it is only a 5-minute taxi ride to the walled city of Cartagena (approx. $8,000 COP), 10 minutes to the modern Bocagrande (approx $15,000 COP), or 3 minutes to the ritzy beachside of La Boquilla ($7,000 COP). Make sure to confirm the price with the taxi driver before getting in.
For another mode of transportation, you can hop on the city operated Transcaribe bus service. Boarding the bus requires a refillable card, which can be acquired at the central Transcaribe station. Refilling of this card can be done at any Transcaribe bus station, for whatever amount of money. Each ride costs $2,100 COP, but you can transfer from one bus to another at no cost. The Crespo 102 line will take you right to the walled city, and to the more eastern barrios of Cartagena. There are 6 different bus routes, so be sure to know what stops the Crespo 102 bus stops at. If anything, just hop off at any station and transfer to another bus that stops where you want to go. Feel free to visit download the Transcaribe website, or download the Transcaribe app to get familiarized with the different bus routes and stations.
Also, you can hop into shared taxis called "collectivos". They are essentially taxis that fill their vehicle with 4 people and head to a specific location. And just a heads up, they only move when they have filled up their vehicle with 4 people. From Crespo they only head to the barrio of San Diego, just inside the walled city. From San Diego, they head to either Bocagrande or Crespo, so make sure to ask the driver what route they are taking so you don't end up in the wrong place. Collectivos charge $2,000 COP per person. IMPORTANT: If you are trying to hail a collectivo on the street, or they hail you by honking, make sure to ask the driver if they are operating as a collectivo or a taxi, as some drivers change from one service to the other throughout the day, depending on their location and time of day. By asking you will avoid hopping into a taxi that you thought was operating as a collectivo but you end up having to pay the taxi rate which you never confirmed before getting in.
And finally, Uber is available in Cartagena. Like in a lot of cities around the world, the service is in a gray area of legality. Although you can hail a vehicle/driver using the Uber app, be aware that Uber drivers are not viewed upon positively by taxi drivers. So, if you hail an Uber driver on your own, they may ask you to sit in the front seat to avoid unwanted attention. You have the right to not sit in the passenger seat and cancel the service without charge, but the driver also has the right to reject you as a passenger. This is not always the case, but do be aware that this can happen. For the most part, Uber is a reliable way to get around and get home in Cartagena.
