  1. Peak Season

    December to February

    While there is a distinct wet and dry period, the seasons are not extreme enough to cause any major problems and essentially makes Colombia a year-round destination. The best way to determine when you should travel is of course, based on your interests. From December to February, this is when the country is at its driest which in turn, creates what is known as the peak season and is when prices are at their highest. Hikers and travellers looking to visit the Andean region can travel with greater peace of mind knowing the weather conditions will be less extreme. This is also the best time for beach-lovers to visit the Caribbean Coast.

  2. Low Season

    October to November

    As mentioned, Colombia is enjoyable 365 days a year, however October through November is when Colombia experiences much greater rainfall. If your itinerary is mostly outdoor-based, you might find some restrictions on what you can do. On the other hand, if your plan mostly involves museums, galleries, foodie adventures and are undeterred by the climate, you will enjoy lower prices and smaller crowds around major attractions.
