Colombia FAQ

When To Go

Given it’s close proximity to the equator, Colombia is more or less a year-round destination. The dry seasons in the interior, traditionally, run from December through March, then again in July and August. While it rains other times of year, people still travel and have an amazing time. In the rainy seasons, expect short but powerful rains in Cartegna but largely skies are clear. The country is equatorial, so temperatures remain static throughout the year for the most part, with the main fluctuations caused by altitude. Only in the thick, jungle rain forests of the Colombian Amazon does rain really become profound. Our advice: the main times to avoid travel in Colombia are Christmas-New years and Easter Week. This is because native Colombians love to travel in their country and tourist numbers peak at famous sites, parks, hotels, cities, etc. and it's better to avoid that level of crowding.
