Colombia

Stretching from the Andean foothills to the Caribbean coast, Colombia is emerging as one of Latin America’s hottest destinations to visit.

Palm-fringed beaches backed by lush jungle, contrasting landscapes, colourful cities and of course, the coffee — Colombia is still a largely undiscovered country waiting to be explored.

Its newfound economic stability and wealth of attractions make it an exciting place to visit. Boutique hotels are popping up across the major centres, there’s an exciting food scene and it is home to some of the most welcoming people on the continent.

Join A&K on an award-winning, authentic journey into the heart and soul of Columbia. Your experienced guides have been pioneering travel to Latin America for over 50 years — so you’re in safe hands.

Best time to travel to Colombia

Colombia’s proximity to the equator keeps temperatures stable throughout the year, around 24°C on the coast and 7-17°C further inland. Rainfall varies with the seasons.

In the Andean region, there are two dry and two wet seasons each year, the driest being between December and March, and July and August. In the south of the country, rainfall is more constant but showers never last long. The Amazon climate is wet year-round.

The busiest seasons to visit are December to February and over Easter.

Award-winning Journeys to Bogotá, Pereira, Cartagena and Beyond

Start your Colombian adventure in the vibrant capital of Bogotá, which offers up a beautiful blend of old and new. Explore the city’s impressive collection of art and take a walking tour of the historic La Candelaria district.
