Taxi in Lorica
The taxi fare is usually $40.000 pesos. Taxis wait in front of the bus terminal, and this is the best option for groups of four or more. Are you on your own? You will find a cheaper shared car (colectivo) by walking from the bus terminal past the Olimpica supermarket about a hundred meters. Under a black tarp, there’s a sign that says “Moñitos — $10.000”, and there will be cars. Once there are enough people, one of the cars will take you to Paso Nuevo. It drops you off at the side of the road, and you just need to take a moto to the port, which will cost $2.000 pesos.
