Weather in Bogotá

The climate in Bogotá does not vary a great deal, so the Columbian capital can be visited at any time of the year. Stack the odds in your favour by staying between December and March during the driest season and avoiding the city in April and October when the chance of rain is vaguely higher. Throughout the year, the mercury hovers around 20°C (69°F), dipping to 18°C (64°F) or 19°C (66°F) from June to October. One of the city’s biggest festivals is Bogotá Carnival in August when the streets come to life with colourful costumes, music and dance.
