We try to get up to Comala at least once a year in the winter. The views of the volcano are amazing, the road has been updated and much easier to travel on. Stop along the way, and visit the coffee plantations, and some great restaurants. Most English speaking. Stop in Comala and just sit in the square and people... More

We went on road trip from Guadalajara to Colima, but instead taking diversion from Ciudad Guzman into highway 429 to main entrance, we took route to small village called Tonila which is on the way to Manzanillo.

If you're visiting Colima to view the volcano's, be sure you are there at a time when the farmers are not burning their fields. The smog from the burning make it impossible to view the volcano's

This is a unique active volcano that frequently smokes ! And is next to an other that sometimes has snow, so you can see a snowed inactive volcano next to an other one that smokes!! Unbelievable!! I haven't see in any other part of the word something like this! Definitely a place to visit! Wow!!

You don't need to go any closer than to the edge of the city. The vulcano looms over colima. It photographs well because its shape is veey conical.

While we had heard that this is an active volcano that tends to scare off many tourists, our local friends set us at ease and we set out to do several outings with different and beautiful views of the volcano... and were treated day after day!

Volcano is fairly easy to access, if you're mobile and not too conservative. Rural folks are quite friendly. Old Mexico.
