Welcome to Colima

The billowing volcano you see on clear days, Volcán de Fuego – visible 30km to the north − continues to rumble and shake, and the city has been hit by several major quakes over the centuries (the last one of 7.5 magnitude in January 2003). It’s no wonder that Colima has few colonial buildings, despite having been the first city established by the Spanish in western Mexico.
