The climate in Colombia has striking variations - which is quite typical of countries with a wide variety of elevations.

In general terms, weather conditions are hot and humid along the coastal areas, and below (1,000 m) in elevation; somewhat mild (1,000 - 2,000 m), and quite cold (2,000 meters, and above). The hottest months are March and April; coldest months are July and August.

As an elevation example, Bogota is over (2,500 m) in elevation, and average summer high temperatures approach 78° F, while in the lower eastern elevations, summer high temperatures soar into the high 90s.

Precipitation is generally moderate to heavy, with highest levels in the Pacific lowlands and in parts of northeastern Colombia. Most rainfall occurs from (March - May) and from (September - November).
