When to go
Colombia has an equatorial climate and therefore doesn’t have dramatic seasonal changes. The best time to visit the country as a whole is from December through March when there is the least amount of rain.
From May to July and October to December there can be frequent short, heavy showers, though they are usually followed by bright sunshine. Note that it can be cooler when visiting areas at altitude, such as Bogota.
Starting in July 2014, Avianca are flying direct from London to Bogota. Indirect options, via Europe or the USA include Iberia, Air France and American Airlines.
