It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Bogotá

Peak Season: July to August; December

Bogotá’s celebration of the city’s founding, the colorful Bogotá Carnival (held August 5 and 6 annually) brings crowds to see its parades and street parties, as do the July events – street theater, puppetry, storytelling –  leading up to it. The Christmas and New Year’s holidays make hotels more expensive in December.

Off Season: April to June; September to November

The temperature range is the same as the rest of the year, but these are Colombia’s wettest months. Bring a raincoat.

Sweet Spot: January to March

Winter is the driest time of year to visit – and since the weather is always in the mid-60s during the day and mid-40s at night, it’s a great time to take the funicular up to the top of Cerro de Monserrate for the view. An international theater festival, usually biannually held toward the end of March, brings avant garde work to the city. Unless you’re going specifically to see Easter festivals, avoid Holy Week (dates rotate in March and April).
