The problem was that there seemed to be only one bus and it was a long time before the bus came around again. Hop-on, Hop-off buses work best if a bus comes around on a more frequent basis so that you can truly hop-on and hop-off several times in a day. We just took the bus around for one complete loop because if we stopped for a short visit at any of the stops, it would be a long time before it comes around again.
The Hop-on, Hop-off was not well advertised nor did it seem to get any promotion in the city of Cartagena. There was an information kiosk at the cruise terminal, but no one was there to man it. The other people in other kiosks did not seem to know anything about it or were reluctant to give any information. We ended up taking a cab to the Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas where they seemed to know a little more about it. I probably wouldn't use it again as it is not a true hop-on, hop-off because of the limited schedule.
