We pulled into the port area where we all hopped out of the cab and paid the driver. We were immediately surrounded by security asking us to get back in the cab, we needed to drive further. We pulled up to a gate with a dirt road and some armed guards and were told to drive in. The first knocked on the window and asked to see our cruise cards, then another guard walked around the cab with a mirror to check under the car. Then we were told to drive ahead.
It didn’t look right, it was dirt and dirt roads. When we left the ship it was asphalt and a nice looking building. As we turned the corner all four of us sighed with relief. The asphalt, the building and the line of $20 cabs was all right there waiting for us.
We walked back through the shops at the pier and found a nice bottle of rum and some coffee. After all you can’t come to Colombia without buying coffee right? Then we headed back to the ship where security confiscated our bottle of rum for the remainder of the cruise. After all they have to protect their $10 drink price at the bar.
