Colima, Mexico has an area of 5,191 sq km and a population of 567,900. Its capital is Colima City.
Colima, located on the Pacific Coast shares a border with the Mexican states of Jalisco and Michoacán. Its topography is dominated by the Pacific coastline and the Fuego de Colima volcano.
The name ‘Colima’ comes from the Nahuatl word ‘collimaitl’, where ‘colli’ means ‘ancestors or gods’ and ‘maitl’ means ‘domain of’, referring to the natural beauty of this place. Home to several Indian settlements, it was occupied by the Spanish in the sixteenth century.
One of the best cities to visit in Mexico. A really underrated charmy and calm smalltown with a perfect climate. No beaches, nice shopping and all kinds of tropical fruits in the neighbourhood. Really worth some days visit. You may find it necessary being active really early in the mornings and in late evenings, because of the hot weather. People are very friendly.
