I am planning on spending 3 weeks in Colombia during the end of July/beginning of August. I will most likely only visit the Carribbean coast and go to: Cartagena, Santa Marta, Tanganga, and Parque Tayrona. I am curious to know what the weather was like there in August, as I have heard this is hurricane season and the rain and winds can be very strong. Due to the humidity, I am also wondering how bad the mosquitos are (specifically in Parque Tayrona). Did you take malaria pills while you were there? I wasn't planning on taking pills, but I am nervous about sleeping outside in a hammock during wet season, when the mosquitos may be really bad.

Thank you!

    Hey Cyan, just to let you know that you don't need to take malaria pills at the coast. But try to use a mosquito net and follow some tips which you can read here: http://www.colombiafacil.com/en/faq/mosquitoes-in-colombia. Have fun on your trip, you are going to love it! over 5 years ago

    Your trip is great. Those sites are wonderful.. But I have a few recommendations for you. 1. Careful with the street sellers because they'll offer you man things and a "taste" and then they'll ask you for a lot of money when u already eat or use the product. 2 in Cartagena you gotta visit Baru island, use a fast ship and enjoy. 3. Tayrona is amazing, but be careful with Mosquitos. You are not gonna die, but use medicine (vacuna) against malaria. over 5 years ago
