Enjoying the tropical climate of Colombia is only good on the first two to three weeks of stay. When that time comes, you’ll start to complain about it. You can’t escape the weather therefore the only thing you can do is do the obvious -to take a dip on the beach or go home. But there are two more options for you to resist the hot weather.
Let’s start with the obvious one…
Take a dip to Colombia’s beaches – The Caribbean Coast together with San Andres and Providencia are the best beach destinations according to Colombia travel blog sites. Taking a swim to one of these pristine beaches is obviously the most fun option in escaping this country’s hot climate. With mild and cool constant winds blowing from the sea plus the not-too-cold clear turquoise water will surely ease that pesky heat.
Take refuge to Medellin – Although not as cool as the beaches of the country, the place can still shelter you from the heat. You might think it’s wrong to list it here despite its nickname but actually it’s the opposite. Yes, it’s not that cool but since it is located high enough, it can maintain its “eternal spring” temperature. They won’t name it “eternal” otherwise if it can’t do that (maintain the temperature most of the time) after all. Actually, any place located in the Andes is cold and luckily, most cities of the country are located there.
Pick a place in the East Andes – Also called Cordillera Oriental, this place doesn’t just offer a temporary escape from the heat. It can give you more than that –a permanent cold weather. Good thing this region contains numerous national parks like the Guacharo Cave. At least you won’t get bored during your stay here.
