Colombia: Climate & Weather


Its proximity to the equator gives the Colombian climate uniformity in its temperatures: Globally speaking, the dry season lasts from December to March and the wet season, with strong rainfall, from April to November.

However this general pattern is affected by regional geographic zones with a humid tropical climate in the Amazon, a harsher climate at altitude and more akin to desert in the Guajija.

The best time to visit Colombia is during the dry season but avoid the weeks between the middle of December to the middle of January which is the favourite time for holidaying Colombians.
