Overview

Colombia has some of the most dramatic scenery, the greatest variety of flora and fauna, the most atmospheric towns, and among the friendliest people in Latin America. Snow-capped Andean peaks dominate the skies above an apron of coffee plantations, giving way to pristine rainforest. Warm Caribbean waters stroke lazy blond beaches, while pre-Conquest ruins and exquisite colonial cities dot the landscape. Discover it all with a holiday to Colombia, South America.

Colombia has a comprehensive air network – essential in such a fractured landscape – and a good local road system. The tourist infrastructure in these more stable times is expanding rapidly. With a bit of careful planning and use of expert advice, a holiday to Colombia is within easy reach.

At Journey Latin America we offer a wide selection of holidays in Colombia to suit all types of travellers. Whether you’re looking for a solo holiday, searching for a family-friendly trip, or are keen to join a group tour, you’ll find a number of exciting choices.

Discover the highlights of Colombia on our Signature Colombia: Culture and Coffee holiday. Explore Bogotá during a city tour, enjoy excursions in the coffee region and take in the sights of colonial Cartagena.

If getting off-the-beaten track is more your kind of holiday, our Off the beaten track Colombia: San Agustin and the Amazon is for you. Explore San Agustín and Tierradentro pre-Columbian archaeological sites, visit Guambiano communities and stay in the Colombian Amazon.

If you prefer to travel together with like-minded travellers, our Chachalaca: Colombia’s colonial and coffee culture escorted group tour might be the perfect option for you. On this 14-day holiday, you will cover many highlights, including Bogotá, the coffee region, Medellín and Cartagena.

Where to go when - our guide to Colombia

Flower festival Medellin

The weather in Colombia is wide and varied

From snow-capped Andean mountains to dense, unspoilt rainforests, Colombia boasts some of Latin America’s most diverse and dramatic scenery. This is a year-round destination with a relatively stable climate; while some months are rainier than others, you won’t find many dramatic weather fluctuations. That being said, the climate can vary greatly between regions. Expect pleasant springtime weather in Andean cities, steamy tropical downpours in the Amazon rainforest and beaming, hot sunshine on the glorious Caribbean coastlines.

As December - March offer the driest and hottest weather conditions in many regions, this is often the high season for visitors - popular destinations will be bustling with a lively atmosphere. You may also wish to plan your trip to include one of Colombia’s many cultural events - why not celebrate Baranquilla’s larger-than-life Carnival in February, or marvel at the intricate floral displays of Medellín’s Flower Festival in August. Wildlife enthusiasts would do well to visit the Amazon during the drier season July - November when the animals are easier to spot, or head to the grassy Llanos from September - March when thousands of birds flock to the watering holes.
