Currency - cruise stop

Can someone please tell me whether US$ are accepted by taxi drivers and tour guides in Cartagena?

Thanks

They usually will accept US dollars, but in my experience I have found that they prefer to have Colombian pesos. One other tip - Cartagena is the one place I have travelled where the stores do not widely accept traveller's cheques. To get your traveller's cheques cashed is not always an easy experience there either.
