We are heading to Cartagena and wonding if it would be better to have the peso or us dollars to get the better deal with taxi's. food, emeralds, etc. Exchanging the unused funds is not a problem.

 

 

That would depend on the preference of the vendor you deal with.

 

The latest exchange rate I see is 1.00 USD = 1,920.30 COP

I believe that you will get a better deal with pesos. The only place that I saw prices in USD were in the Bovedas shops in the walled city (and they are overpriced anyway). Local taxis (which are amazingly cheap) will probably want pesos (and small bills)... I had a hard time breaking the 50,000 peso notes.
