Colima

The small state of Colima is a place of vast natural beauty, and great historical and cultural importance. Join Mex-ECO Tours to explore its capital and surrounding countryside, including spectacular views of one of Mexico’s most active volcanos, el Volcán de Colima.

Our most popular Colima tour coincides with the annual Colima horse show, combining a spectacular horse parade with a great cultural experience! This trip includes Colima’s historic centre, the Magic Town of Comala, Nogueras botanical gardens & museum, a rum factory with a view, and more (see itinerary at the bottom of this page).

Other activities we can include in your customised tour to Colima include bird watching, La Campana archaeological site, a guided tour of El Tortugario conservation and research centre (focusing on sea turtles, green iguanas and the american crododile), and visits to learn about the production of the Colima’s coffee, chocolate, and world class salt.

New for 2021: Photography workshops with Colima’s Sergio Tapiro, winner of National Geographic’s Travel Photographer of the year in 2017 and World Press Photo 2016.
