Exploring the Environs



The climate is rainy, making it wise to bring raincoats and waterproof, non-slip shoes. To reach a number of nearby sights, all-terrain vehicles or pickup trucks are best for navigating the mountainous and dirt roads.

More to Know

The Purépecha originally inhabited Comala but were conquered by the Spanish in the 16th century and fell under the authority of Bartolomé López. Coffee was first exploited in the late 19th century, when Arnold Vogel, a German, founded the San Antonio Hacienda, the area’s first. Economic activity also brought in the Colima-Lumber Railroad in 1910, which, as the name implies, transported lumber down from the mountains.
