Is September worth travelling to Colombia?

We would like to visit Colombia the first two weeks of September going to places in central and northern parts of the country. Based on the climate chart it is a low rainy season. Is there a high chance the weather would spoil our vacation? Cheers

    I would encourage you to go to Colombia regardless of the chart. You never really know what you're going to get, weather-wise, but I promise you that Colombia will not disappoint—it is *such* a wonderful country. In the weeks leading up to our trip (in February), the forecasts on my phone were just rain, rain, rain. Yet it turned out that all that rain meant the occasional passing shower, and really, most days it was pleasant and sunny.

    Colombia always has a great weather, that's because we don't have very strong seasons, but it depends on the place that you are going to visit, for example, The places in the northern part near to the cost, have much warmer weather. I hope you have a great time in Colombia!

    Gina's answer hits the nail on the head but September is a great time to be in Colombia, especially if you're a nature lover. In Choco, not only is it the humpback whale season but it's also the time when turtles come to hatch their eggs.

    It was meant to be rainy season March/April/May and whilst there were showers every now and then, it wasn't what I expected to be rainy season and a lot of my Colombian friends say that because of El Niño, there is absolutely no way of guessing what the weather will be like from one day to the next.

    Regardless, I would like to reiterate like everyone else has already said, Colombia is a beautiful, diverse country full of upbeat, positive and lovely people (it may be a cliché to say so, but it's so true) so just come and see it for yourself!

    I would not worry about the weather. I recommend Cartagena. Before you eat in a restaurant or take a taxi make sure you know or arrange prices before hand. The coffe zone is always an eternal spring so it is gorgeous. Enjoy your trip!

    I don't think you should worry about weather too much. I was there in Dec-2011 first time when they got the heaviest rains in 100 years (so they claimed), a lot of landslides and closed roads, but I could still do most of the activities I planned. Even during rainy season remember, heavy rain usually comes later in the afternoon so if you get out early and finish by 4PM you are fine.

    Colombia gets most of the precipitations on the Pacific coast, but unless you are a surfer heading to Nuqui or have in plan to deal with FARC rebels in jungle areas I would skip that part of Colombia :-) Most of the country is actually very safe, way more than media propaganda tends to portray it.
