According to the Barranquilla’s carnival 2016 program, the festival takes place at many different locations around the city: So you would have to go to different streets/stadiums depending on which day you'll be there.

Barranquilla to Cartagena took me just under 1 hour and 30 minutes a few days ago. I did this by bus for 23000 COP which comes to roughly 9 CDN or 6 USD.
