1. I was just wondering what the weather’s like in Bogotá? I see that it’s low 70′s which is enough for me to think wearing t-shirts would be fine but I was reading that most people dress for warm weather. How cold does it really get?
2. Also, did you get any vaccinations (such as Typhoid or Yellow Fever) before ariving?
1. The weather at the moment is pretty good as it’s not raining too much. People here wear light jackets or jumpers. If it’s sunny, then T shirts are fine. At night it gets colder as we’re high up in the mountains. I would definitely pack an umbrella and warmer clothing too…when it rains, it pours. My wellies have been a godsend.
Good news is that if you do get caught in the rain, there’s always a street vendor at your rescue selling cheap umbrellas.
2. I didn’t get any special vaccinations before coming here, but only because I was up to date on mine. I do recall having to get Yellow Fever for when I went to Tayrona National Park, but don’t think you need any specifically for the city.
I’m no expert though, so do check with your doctor, or online with sites like netdoctor. (You can click here for the link).
Better to be safe than sorry!
Hope this helps, and if you have any more info, please feel free to add your comment!
