Overview

Like many of Latin America’s great cities, Colombia’s capital is a place of contradictions. There is never a dull moment, with the dynamic hubbub of humanity everywhere. It can feel immense, edgy, at times chaotic, and always choked with traffic. Yet Bogotá also has a lovely, relatively sedate colonial core, La Candelaria, with its palaces, churches and centrepiece Plaza Bolivar. Modern suburbs are cluttered with upmarket shops, nightclubs, glamorous restaurants and plush apartments. Meanwhile, the hills just beyond are pitted with the self-built, ramshackle homes of the less fortunate who arrive in the city looking for work.

A centre for the intellect, Bogotá has many excellent museums, cinemas, theatres, music venues and universities, along with a vigorous café society. The urban sprawl is overshadowed by Andean peaks glowering over the city which, at 2,640m, enjoys a climate of perpetual spring.

Where to go when - our guide to Bogota

Grafitti Bogota

The weather in Bogota is wide and varied

Thanks to its location in the heart of the Andean mountains, Colombia’s sprawling capital stands at a considerable altitude - 2,600 metres closer to the stars, according to the city’s slogan. Bogota enjoys a perpetually mild, spring-like climate, so you can visit its excellent museums, theatres, music venues and rustic cafés at any time of year.

Temperatures tend to hover around 14°C with sunny spells, showers and cloud cover fluctuating throughout the day. Generally you’ll find the most sunshine and least rainfall from December - March and again from Jul - Aug. You may also want to plan around the fascinating and varied cultural events that the city offers: Carnival celebrations in July, International Theatre Festival March - April, and a world renowned Jazz Festival in September.
