This trip includes the famous Petatera of Villa de Alvarez (handmade bull ring, constructed every year for local fiestas), Colima’s historic centre, the Magic Town of Comala, Ex-Hacienda Nogueras botanical gardens & museum, a rum factory with a view, and more.
For a special Colima experience, try our ‘A Taste of Colima Tour’: Taste Colima’s traditional drinks and food, get in the saddle at a spectacular equestrian ranch and learn about their permaculture project, and even try your hand at painting with one of Alejandro Rangel’s former students; all this and more in a small group tour, staying in one of Comala’s beautiful boutique hotels. This itinerary (see below) can be customised for private groups (minimum 6 people).
