Its name comes from the Nahuatl word that was known to the ancient kingdom of Colliman: from colli, "hill", "volcano" or "grandfather" and Maitl, "hand", "domain". Colima is thus "place overlooking the old god or the god of fire." It is the fourth smallest state and its Human Development Index is high. The state's capital city of the same name: Colima. Bounded on the north Colima Jalisco, south to the state of Michoacan and west by the Pacific Ocean. Politically divided into ten municipalities: Armeria, Colima, Comala Coquimatlán, Cuauhtemoc, Ixtlahuacán, Manzanillo, Minatitlan Tecomán and Villa de Alvarez.

The territory of Colima, of which nearly three quarters of surface is covered by mountains and hills, falls within a branch of the Sierra Madre del Sur, which comprises four mountain ranges. Despite being a small entity, Colima contains within its boundaries a myriad of attractions that contribute to enhancing the reputation of Mexico, among which we mention the cathedral, a neoclassical style, the Government Palace, the magnificent murals of painter Colima Jorge Chavez Carrillo, illustrating historical subjects relating to the Conquest, Colonization and the War of Independence. Other cultural and architectural places that stand out are: El Teatro Hidalgo, dating from the nineteenth century, the Temple of San Francisco, founded in 1554, the House of Culture, with an amazing library, exhibition hall, auditorium and workshops on various activities artistic.
