What is the best time to visit Colombia? Our destination experts share an overview.
Set on the equator, Colombia boasts a uniformly tropical climate with few seasonal variations.
Most of Colombia experiences a tropical climate. In the low-lying coastal areas to the North, especially near Cartagena and Barranquilla, expect temperatures ranging around 30 degree celsius around the year. As you journey towards the mountains, the temperature naturally changes according to the altitude – the higher you climb, the colder it gets. While some areas experience pleasant climate and a temperature of about 25 degrees, in the higher reaches, this may fall to as low as 0 degrees.
Colombia experiences dry weather in the months between January to March and June to August, except in May. However, you can still expect at least a few hours of bright sunshine everyday even in the rainy season.
What to Pack
Due to the wide range in temperatures between each region, we advise you to bring several layers of clothing for your Colombia tour, which you can quickly put on or pull out according to the weather.
