Getting To and Away

By Bus
There is no bus terminal per se, but all buses come to a halt on the main plaza in Puerto Berrío. This leaves you close to all hotels, banks and restaurants. There are three main transportation companies that make the trip to Puerto Berrío: Cootransmagdalena, Rápido Ochoa (mainly to Medellín) and Rápido Tolima (taxi services).

Buses make the trip to Bucaramanga (6 buses daily, $13), Barrancabermeja (7 buses daily, $8) and Medellín (26 buses daily, $9-10.50). Alternatively, it is possible to take a taxi to Honda (1 taxi daily, $9), Ibagué (6 taxis daily, $12.50) or Puerto Boyacá (2 taxis daily, $5).

By Boat
Cootransfluviales Unidos (Tel: 833-3238) has an office right in the port and runs chalupas (fast boats) to Barrancabermeja (2.5 hr) at 9 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. for $10.

Trans Fluvial runs boats from Puerto Berrío to La Sierra at 7:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m.
