Colombia Travel Guide


Best Time of the Year to Visit Colombia
 
Colombia is considered a year-round destination with comfortable temperatures that allow visitors to enjoy it to the fullest almost every day of the year.

December, January, and February are mostly dry months across the country, with clear skies and warm temperatures. Ideal for hiking in Colombia's national parks and exploring the Caribbean coast. March and April feel dry in the Andes, with occasional showers. It’s a good time for adventure sports. Water levels are perfect for white water rafting. May tends to be soggy in the highlands. Visitors can explore San Andrés and Providencia’s beaches and coral reefs. Cartagena might experience rain during this month. June and July bring occasional tropical showers in the highlands, with rains easing off by August. It’s a good time to observe wildlife. During September and October, the shoulder season, the Caribbean coast is at its wettest. It’s a good time for outdoor sports and whale-watching. November brings forth warmer temperatures in the Caribbean Coast. Rain is experienced throughout the country. 

How to get to Colombia

If you are wondering how to get to Colombia to explore its rich biodiversity and alluring culture, we recommend the best two ways of doing so.

By Air

Getting to Colombia has become increasingly easy as airlines open new direct routes to its most important cities. Colombia has 5 international airports located in the cities of Bogotá, Barranquilla, Cali, Cartagena, and Medellín. Direct flights to Colombia are available from France, Germany, and Spain with Lufthansa, Avianca, Iberia, and Air France. Airlines such as TACA, LAN, Avianca, American Airlines, and Continental Airlines have direct flights to Bogotá, Cali, Medellín or Cartagena from main cities in the USA, Central America, and South America. 

By Sea

Colombia boasts unique port infrastructure, being one of the few countries in the world to have access to two different oceans. Along with its natural beauty, it makes it a popular destination for adventure-seekers who love to sail the seas as they explore the world’s most beautiful destinations. With approximately 30 international cruise lines making stops in the country, due to the increasing tourist offer and improved infrastructure, it has become a favorite destination for international cruise companies. The main port of arrival in Colombia is the port of Cartagena de Indias, an OAS Sustainable Tourism Destination Port with excellent economic and environmental practices.

Is Colombia safe?

Colombia is a safe destination and one of the most beautiful, and amicable countries in South America. Thousands of visitors travel to Colombia each year and rarely encounter any sort of problem. Even though it’s safe to say that the days of drug lords and terrorism are long gone, armed groups are active in the country. However, their activity is limited to very remote areas in the borders and the jungle, where tourists are advised not to go. 

A very small percentage of visitors may be subject to pickpocketing and robbery, which is why - like in any other part of the world - we recommend avoiding bad neighborhoods, keeping a low profile, and taking Uber rides instead of taxis if you are planning on moving around the city on your own. Guided tours are the best option when exploring a new destination if a seamless experience is what you are looking for.

Colombian Food and cuisine

Colombia's traditional food is a mixture of indigenous, Spanish, and African influences. Some of the most popular dishes in Colombia include:
  • Bandeja Paisa: The national dish of Colombia. It's a hearty plate of rice, beans, meat (usually beef or pork), avocado, plantain, chorizo, and arepa (corn cake). 
  • Ajiaco: A traditional soup made with potatoes, corn, and chicken, it's usually served with cream, capers and avocado.
  • Empanadas: Turnovers filled with meat, cheese or seafood, they are often served as a snack or a side dish.
  • Tamales: Traditional corn dough filled with meat, usually chicken or pork, wrapped in banana leaves.
Visitors can find these traditional dishes in many Colombian restaurants, street food vendors, and local markets. Remember to top off your meal with a delicious cup of Colombian coffee.
