We have included specific information for Colombia on everything from Language and Culture to Weather & Getting Around in our Colombia Travel Guide, so make sure you check those out for more details to help you plan your trip. As Colombia is situated on the Equator, rather than the temperature varying by season, its climate is related to altitude. Colombia can, therefore, be split up into three different climates. The Tierra Caliente is a warm, tropical zone covering approximately 82.5% of the country with the land rising up from sea level to roughly 3,500ft (1,067m). The area between 3,500ft. (1,067m) and 6,500ft. (1,981m) is known as Colombia’s temperate zone and has an average temperature of about 64°F (17°F). Between 6,500ft. (1,981m) and 10,000ft. (3,048m) is the Tierra Fria with annual temperatures reaching just slightly over 55°F (12°C). With an altitude of 8,525ft (2,598m) above sea level, Bogota is situated within the Tierra Fria and has a yearly average temperature of 57°F (13°C). The highest levels of precipitation fall on the west coast of Bogota and in the Andes and these areas feature a dry and wet season which alternate every three months. The wettest months to visit Bogota are between April-June and October-December. In the north of Colombia, there is only one wet season which is from May to October.
