According to IDEAM there are at least four types of weather in the country: tropical high mountain, dry, temperate and cold.

In the case of tropical climatesfour subtypes are identified: rainy or equatorial jungle, rainy or monsoon forest, dry winter savannah and dry summer savannah.

He tropical rainforest or equatorial It covers areas such as the central and northern Amazon, the entire Pacific region, parts of Antioquia, western Santander, Boyacá and Cundinamarca, the Catatumbo region and the foothills of the Amazon. During this time he tropical rainforest or monsoon it reaches the foothills of the plains and the extreme south of the Caribbean region.

There savannah with dry winter includes most of the Caribbean and Orinoco region, as well as the lower sectors of Santander and Antioquia. In reference to savannah with dry summer. It adds the inter-Andean valleys of Tolima, Huila, Valle, Cauca and Nariño.

For him dry climatein Colombia on very hot arid or desert and very hot semi-arid or steppe. The first is perceived in the upper part of the Guajira and the second in the middle and lower zone of the same department plus sectors of the Caribbean coast.

He mild climate it is felt in the middle and lower areas of the three mountain ranges of the Colombian country; During this time he high mountain coldas the name suggests, in the upper levels of the three mountain ranges.
