Can't wait to go back.


Could you provide a little more insight, please?

Where are most moving from and why and where in Asia were you which was found to provide more than Mexico.

Good point and one worth repeating for those who haven't looked at a map recently..

Wondering if there's a politically correct way of stating this.. It would be confusing to say a Mexican American -- or a US American, because actually we're all *North* American's.. Any ideas??

Warm and humid, you can find any priced housing, you can shop from local markets to Walmart. Colima is a modern city with good medical and education. Not many gringos in the city and less in the country

Hi Sparksmex,

Thanks for this bit of info. Have you lived in Colima before? I've been once back in 1989 on a hang gliding trip. Loved the feel of the place. I was there in February and don't recall it being humid. Must of been the wrong time of year.

Do you have any idea of price ranges to lease, or buy? I'd prefer a house on the city outskirts. 2 bedrooms, kitchen, living/dining room, not tiny, but not huge with electricity and running water and with perhaps some garden space. I'd consider living in or near city center too. What are utility bills like? I'm just trying to get a handle on costs to see if it would be worth me paying a visit next November. Is there a rainy season? If so, when is that? Just the usual questions I guess. There never seems to be much info about Colima on the internet. Thanks for any new light you may shed.

Best wishes, Ron White

The rainy season is summer - May thru Sept. Colima could be comfortable Dec-March. The climate problem is the low elevation and in the valley does not get the ocean breeze. Like anywhere is Mexico you can find reasonable places with some looking - $4000 pesos or $350us is a good range. Utilities are not bad if you don't use AIR

I lived on the coast in Jalisco just north of the Colima border for 5 years and we visited Colima often

It's hopeless. We can't even say we're from the United States without causing confusion, since Mexico is yet another United States Estados Unidos Mexicanos.
