The Best Season to Travel to Colombia
Colombia can be visited all year round. Like any tropical country, it can rain at any time. But these rains are warm and often short!
The so-called “dry” period (December to April, as well as from mid-June to the end of September) is synonymous of sunshine, of course, but high numbers of tourists because it coincides with school holidays in Colombia. It should be noted that Colombians travel within their country a lot, especially on public holidays…
During these peak periods (Christmas and Easter), hotels and restaurants are fully booked well in advance, beaches and natural sites are crowded and prices rise sharply…
Of course, the best season varies according to your interests and the purpose of the trip: trekking, whales watching in the Pacific, taking part in the Barranquilla carnival, or attending Holy Week processions.
