Travel from Medellin to Cartagena

Is is safe to travel by rent-a-car from Medellin to Cartagena? Are the roads good? What is the cost by bus? How long does it take to drive to Cartagena?

It's safe enough by day but is a grueling drive through the mountains to the coast-not recommended.

Figure 12-14 hours by bus IIRC it was around CP100,000.

I flew.
