•We examined extreme winds and waves in the Colombian Caribbean Sea using different extreme value analysis (EVA) methods.•The characterization of extremes in terms of return periods, number of events and its duration during the year is required.•High-resolution data was used. Waves are from ECMWF (ERA-Interim reanalysis) and winds are from NASA/GSFC/NOAA (CCMP).•Three well-known EVA methods are applied: the Block Maxima, the Peak-Over-Threshold and the Method of Independent Storms.•We provide insights towards understanding the annual cycle of extreme conditions and possible forcing mechanisms involved.
