2h hours late, no excuses norhing. The driver left us in the middle of nowhere in barranquilla instead of the bus station because we were "only 2" going there. It's a shame.

Bad service, staff indifferent

Jeffrey B.July 4, 2019 | 

We were told that our bus had been canceled so they scheduled us to a different bus. We were told that instead of the front seats that we had requested we were now in the back next to the bathroom. The bathroom had a horrible odor that made it difficult to stay in our seats.

Very comfortable bus but it was late

Sufia M.March 8, 2019 | 

Terrible! A 2 hr trip took 6 hrs instead. I got to Barranquilla at 3pm instead of 11am.

Goede bus kwaliteit, geen klachten. Goedkoop en snelle verbinding tussen verschillende plaatsen.

Late as lots of traffic due to the carnaval in Barranquilla, but the seats were comfy and ac was lovely. Would recommend

Bad service and communication at the bus station, they responded in a very unpolite way, arrogant I'd say. The service in the bus itself was oke although there was no clear indication of the bus stop.

The bus was suposed to leave at 1.15 pm as indicated on my ticket, but already left at 12.30pm, hence I had to find another transportation. Please reimburse me the cost.

They were not helpful at all. I speak Spanish, not fluently but enough so the language was not a problem. It wasn’t clear where to wait so we asked and we got shrugged off, five separate times in fact. When we finally found the bus the driver was rude and told us to hurry up. We had been waiting there for over an hour where we were told to wait, with no comunication despite us trying. Not impressed to say the least.

We had booked a bus with air con with Copetran at a cost of 14k per person departing at 1.15pm. When we arrived at the Copetran office they handed us off to another company, a small, non air conditioned bus which left at 2.30pm and cost 10k. Essentially Copetran charged us more to book with them and provided no service to us at all. Terrible experience.

Aaron M.April 7, 2018 | 

We have yet to have a Copetran bus that was on time so the tardiness did not bother us. The bus was typical of this type, however it did not arrive at the terminal as shown on our ticket. This required a taxi far in the evening in a city we were not familiar with. Our tickets stated the address of the terminal as our destination and our hotel was chosen so that we could safely walk from the terminal to our hotel (across the street).

The driver was very helpful

Excellent. Among the best I've used in South America, especially considering price.

My trip from cartagena to Santa Marta was great but from Santa Marta to Cartagena was a mess

Bevin C.January 17, 2017 | 

They tried to make me pay again

Alexander D.December 27, 2016 | 

We pre-purchased specific seats to sit together; when arriving on the bus our seats were taken and the people in them shrugged, refusing to move. The bus conductor also failed to convince them to move despite showing them our valid ticket seat numbers, but finally he managed to ask someone else to switch so we could sit elsewhere. The bus was 30 min late and arrived to the destination 1 hour late.
