Is it worth getting Pesos?

The general advice in most ports lately- find an ATM and get bits of local currency.  On a recent Transatlantic, several ship passengers could not enter a pretty park as they did not have any Euros.   

On transAtlantic I did buy Euros in advance and it was useful.


Just wondering if for several hours it would make a difference in Cartegena.

The Colombian Peso is a floating currency (not pegged), it's today about 3,930 pesos per dollar.  I would use USD wherever possible, and if pesos are required, try to use a credit card.


Also, "Mil" in Spanish means thousand, not million.  A "5 Mil" note is 5,000 pesos.
