    There are actually two dormant volcanos near Colima. If you want to see them take a tour. We didnt and we spent several hours trying to find the road and never did. we got close but we were on the wrong side and couldnt get to the entry. And the mount roads kept getting thinner and thinner. At one point there was a sigh about protecting the Pumas. This was when we turns around. We were following the signs and the directions. But we still didnt make it. Later when we did an internet search we found that we were not the only ones to have this problem. We will go back and take a tour. It was a spur of the moment idea that didnt work out, it happens.

    Explosion of Volcan de Fuego

    It is great fun and very exciting to see and hear the Vocan de Fuego blow steam, ash & lava. The vibrations from the explosions can rattle the glasses on our patio table while we watch and wonder. This volcan is active every day and is the most active in Mexico.

    LA CAMPANA

    These pyramids are the most ancient of the Colima area and are Capacha which are of the same age as the Olmec cultures on the Gulf of Mexico. These are not massive pyramids as are the ones at Teotihuacan near Mexico City. Still a must see.

    This building, built on the edge overlooking the Comala River & the upper bridge is on three levels. The building is about 150 yrs old and the ambiance is charming.

    Favorite Dish: Three meals I subscribe to: ARRACHARA, POLLO EN MOLE VERDE & CAMARONES A LA DIABLA. If you can beat these yummies, I won'd believe it.

    This is a very lovely restaraunt which is walking distance from some fine hotels. The food is of course Mexican, but is Regional and I feel that the types of meats offered is unreal.

    Favorite Dish: Arrachara en Fajitas. If you haven't tried it, I can't describe it. Just fantastic.

    Canyon de Herdivero

    by CONSULTOR Updated Apr 18, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This lovely area; Canyon de Herdivero is down and out of the way on the river that boarders the States of Colima & Michoacan. The water originates up stream from the little cafeteria out of a natural hot spring. Getting to this place requires good tires & a high riding vehicle. So very quiet; no music allowed. Cold beer and wonderful little eating sites under the trees and alongside the river.

    This little village is called TECUANILLO and is on the south beaches south of Manzanillo. To get there, you have to go thru the town of Tecoman on hi-way Mex 200 to hi-way Col 89 & on down till you hit the beach at PLAYA DE TECUANILLO. Now.....this is also a fantastic place to sit on the beach w/ no one else and enjoy CAMARONES A LA DIABLA (pilado or w/out skin). The beers available are Indio, Negro Modelo & Corona. My favorite there is Negro Modelo w/ fresh sliced limes of which the State of Colima is world famous.

    Fuente de Comala

    Three places that I think are must see: The area/restaraunt at TAMPUMACHAY, the incredible museum in NOGERAS, which is an old Hacienda and the wonderful, fun BOTENEROS of Comala. This is where the food and music (Mariachis) are free and the drinks are reasonable. Great fun! The view from the botaneros is of the church and garden (jardin),. Boteneros are places where food (snacks) are served.
