"WEATHER AND CLIMATE IN COLOMBIA" Colombia Favorite Tip by PeopleofColombia

Colombia General: 65 reviews and 53 photos

Favorite thing: Colombia is of the climate diversity but one countries which allows him to be able to have variety in foods and tourist sites of great interest for everybody.
Colombia has an equatorial climate and therefore does not have dramatic seasonal changes. The best time for the country as a whole is December-March- it rains the least then.
The archipelago of San Andrés, Providence and Santa Catherine, catalogued by the Nations United like World-wide Reserve of the Biosphere, is located to 720 km of the Northwest of the Colombian Coast.
However, that this is the high season in the coastal resorts and prices go up accordingly, so a visit in the off-season (August-September) will be less expensive. Avoid May-July and October-December, when heavy rains can fall (though they're usually followed by bright sunshine).
The elevation in the country ranges from sea level to 10,000 ft/3,050 m, so temperatures can vary greatly. Coastal cities and Leticia have day temperatures in the 70s-80s F/23-32 C, with nights in the 60s-70s F/17-27 C year-round. The inland cities' year-round day temperatures are generally in the 60s-70s F/17-27 C (nights can get into the 40s-50s F/5-16 C in the winter). A sweater is needed along the coast at night and a jacket in the mountains (this includes Bogotá, which lies at more than 8,000 ft/2,440 m). The best times to visit San Andres are January-February and September, with March-April a close second.
