Because of the proximity to the Equator, Colombia’s temperature does not vary much throughout the year. What makes more of a difference is the altitude, and Colombia has some extremes – from the hot lowlands to the freezing Andean peaks, you could travel a few hours and have completely different temperature, both during the day and night. The best time to visit is when it’s driest, which is generally between December and March and during July/August. Many festivals and fiestas take place during this time as well, so planning will be required to ensure accommodations can be booked during festival times.
