Travel Cartagana to Caracas

by socheid Online Now Jan 22, 2013 at 2:13 PM

Hi all,

I fly back to Europe on Sunday from Caracas. I thus need to find a means of traveling from Cartagena or maybe Santa Marta to Caracas arriving in Caracas on Sat, a day before my flight. I have posted a query similar to this in the Caracas forum as I try to build up the picture.

Flying to Caracas from Cartagena seems to involve a transfer in Bogota and isn't cost attractive. I am prepared to consider breaking the journey somewhere like Maracaibo if that will make the journey more tolerable.

I am trying to trawl the web for info that is already there. My limited Spanish isn't helping much.

Anyone with any advice on this, please feel free to fire away.

    I should have included. According to my guidebook La Bandera bus terminal has a 500 metre unsafe walk to the metro station. Any advice re this please? Is it safe to take a cab or would that present a kidnapping risk?

    Cheers again.
