Jupiter Rivera who operates a B&B in Comala Mexico (Casa Alvarada) also provides tours of the Colima Volcano. This is a very active volcano which sends plumbs of smoke up daily, and he took us a few miles from the town where we got a fantastic view of the volcano and were able to take great photos of the volcano activity. We also visited a coffee plantation on the same tour. Jupiter speaks fluent English and Spanish and is an accredited tour guide, he knows the area well and provided an abundant amount of information.
Anyone who is visiting the area of Manzanillo, Lake Chapala or Guadalajara should plan to take this tour as it is something you should not miss while in the area. Two thumbs up to Jupiter. casa_alvarada@hotmail.com

Travel to Erbabuena and above on the old road to the right at the organic coffee factory. At the top end of the road, park and walk to the one of the largest and religious ceremonial trees in North America. Clean air, beautiful view of volcano, and hiking, photo ops galor. Enjoy and be at peace with the earth.

We drove with friends to Colima-beautiful, clean central square, had breakfast at the outdoor restaurant at Ceballos Hotel. The food was mediocre, but the hotel was a beautiful restoration. We were fortunate enough to be there at the beginning of their Lent pre-celebrations, so there was a parade in the square, followed by the bull-fights the next day (which we were sorry to miss). There was a lovely tourist office in the square with helpful staff. We were able to book an afternoon tour of the area with a very friendly, knowledgeable tour operator, Florencio from Corazon de Colima Tours. We drove toward the volcano (didn't have enough time to hike to it), experienced the Zona Magica, a lagoon where coffee is grown, a coffee "factory" and Comala, another beautiful town with an outdoor restaurant in the central square. Their specialty is "punches"-buy a drink & the tapas keep coming until you tell them to stop. For 3 drinks & all we could eat, plus tip, the bill was under $10! If we had known earlier, we would have stayed in that area for a few days, & taken tours to the surrounding pueblos.
We took the ETN bus back to Manzanillo-luxurious, express bus & very cheap. There is a huge difference between the local buses & the city-to-city express buses. It's fun taking both!
We were very impressed with Florencio's guiding & would recommend him to anyone taking a tour in that area. His web site is www.corazondecolimatours.com.

It isn't every day that one sees a live volcano. That is unless you spend time in Colima, Colima Mexico. It is majestic, on occasion smoke will be trailing out of its peak, I frequently drive through Colima and never fail to be impressed. You can't be in or near the city and miss it.
