What to Pack on Your Colombia Adventure

What to Take on Your Colombia Adventure

Travel Planning

The majority of people immediately assume that the weather is hot in South America, however because of the higher elevation in the Andes, the temperature level can really feel fairly chilly, specifically in the evening. Remember that although near the Equator, the greater altitude on some components of the journey produces great nights and you will require a warm coat or pullover. It’s best to layer clothes as opposed to bring a thick jacket so that you can take layers off when needed.
