Transportation CTG-SMR on New Year's Day

Hello! Thinking of going from Cartagena to Santa Marta on New Year's Day. Will the buses be running on January 1? Or is everything pretty much shut down? Thanks!

No problem finding buses for Cartagena - S/Marta they run during holidays. It will be busy, go to the terminal early or if possible the day before to reserve your seat. The bus terminal is 11km east of the Old City. I would look for a direct bus or buses leave every 30min via Baranquilla. Berilinas,Copetran and Brasilia have the nicest buses.

There is also door/door shuttle service;Serviturs and Marsol, according to some recent posters Marsol's service has been declining.

How do you book Serviturs service? Is it faster than the public bus?

Thanks for any info you can provide.

stacychi, after doing some additional research on Serviturs, I found they mostly specialize in transportation for private groups i.e. schools, group tours, rather than a shuttle service from a – b.

If I come up with any more information I will post it or contact you via p/m
