July - August; December - March
This period experiences less rainfall overall so many choose to visit Colombia and combine with the popular carnival period, which can be an exuberant affair to rival that of Brazil. Bogota is the starting point for most Colombian adventures and has a temperate spring-like climate, albeit milder than other parts of the country due to its altitude, set at 2,630m above sea level.
May - June; October - November
Generally considered to be the rainier periods, during these months you might experience short, sharp showers which are likely to be followed by sunshine. Areas set at altitude, including Bogota will be cooler than the lowlands, particularly in the evenings.
