When to go
The climate’s at its optimum (hot but not scorching or humid) and the festivals season’s in full flow between November and June, but September brings the rainy season and is best avoided.
Planes12km outside the city of Colima, the dinky airport of Miguel de la Madrid receives daily Aeromar flights from Mexico City’s Benito Juarez. Sunset flights are highly recommended – secure a window seat and check out the stunning volcano views.
TrainsMexico is sparse on railway lines, but big on buses (try Uno – www.uno.com.mx). Flying, however, is the most efficient way to cover some of the bigger distances involved.
AutomobilesDriving in Mexico is relatively easy and the roads are generally well maintained. However | venture far from the main highways and you’ll be in dirt track territory – rent a 4x4 if you intend to explore in depth. (www.alamo.com).
TaxisIn Colima town, cabs are plentiful at the airport and around the bus station. In more far-flung places in the state, you’re best hiring a car, or arranging a driver through your hotel. To book a taxi in advance, call Radio Taxis de Colima y Villa de Álvarez on +52 312 311 4949.
