Comala

Colima

The Pueblo Mágico de Comala is just 30 minutes away from Colima, the capital of the state. Comala stands out for its warm weather, lush vegetation, tranquility and peaceful atmosphere. Here it is still possible walking at the sound of your footsteps.

Comala has been a source of inspiration for artists of all currents, highlighting among them Juan Rulfo’s Pedro Páramo, one of the masterpieces of Mexican literary magical realism.

In the Plaza de Armas, next to a bandstand brought from Germany, stands the Parroquía de San Miguel Arcángel. Few meters ahead, the figure of Rulfo who popularized the destination among his readers lies on a bench under palm trees shade.

Between its cobbled streets and its lantern-decorated simple white houses, you can see at first in the morning the locals routine—leisurely and unhurried go to their labour, getting lost at the distance among the papaya trees.

A bread smell fills Pueblo Mágico afternoons. That’s how visitors are called to one of Comala musts: taste their Picones, delicious and sweet large breads similar to conchas, which you can enjoy with café de olla (clay-pot coffee), either for breakfast or dinner.

Another delicacy, perhaps a little treacherous, is Ponche, which you can drink in its refreshing presentation with pomegranate, tamarind or cranberry, or in its creamy version with walnut, coffee, almond or pistachio. All, accompanied by tusca, a derivative of alcohol produced in the fertile lands of the state for giving Ponche a spark.
