Best Time to Travel to Colombia

Best Time to Travel to Colombia

Choosing a time to visit Colombia is easy, as it is an excellent travel destination year-round. Specifically along the Caribbean coast and in Medellín, the weather remains warm and dry for almost the entire year.

From December to March, Colombia experiences their dry season. In general, during this time, temperatures are mild, and there are less frequent rain showers. Tourists visit come to Colombia during this time of the year, in part, because it is holiday season! Carnival and Semana Santa (Holy Week), occur during this time when there are festivals in all towns and cities. These are colorful and lively events that you may want to participate in, but note that hotels and tourist attractions will be busier than normal. Make reservations well in advance and be prepared to pay a little extra for hotels during this time. Medellín’s largest flower festival starts in late July. This 10-day celebration, packed with events, vibrant flower displays, and paisa culture, brings in visitors from around the world

Rather than look at the seasons of Colombia, look at the region and altitude of where you’re visiting. The weather tends to change based on the region, rather than the clearly defined seasons. In the highlands, with higher altitude, nights become quite chilly. Make sure to bring a jacket for when the sun goes down. In contrast, the lowlands experience consistent tropical weather year-round. Rain showers occur here during the months April to June and October to November.

Overall, the best time to visit Colombia is during its drier months, December to March, July, and August. While the sun is up, visitors enjoy hiking in rural regions and exploring the country’s colonial cities. Keep in mind the dates of religious holidays. Santa Semana is a fantastic time to visit Colombia, as the lively celebrations are sure to entertain anyone. If you decide to visit during a religious holiday, plan ahead as hotels book up fast and tend to double their rates the longer you wait!
