Day trip to Minatitlan - Colima Mexico


Including Canoas, Peña Colorado and the mine and of course - El Salto
and the Park
 

Peña Colorada, just down the road a ways, is an atypical Mexican village, very modern and well laid out as a hometown to many of the mine workers. The housing units are both apartment style red brick buildings and single family dwellings. On one side of the highway are a number of small stores and a restaurant which is currently not in operation. We all know how quickly that can change. Nearby are a number of government facilities which serve the needs of the mine workers and other area residents, as well as a large and well-equipped IMSS clinic with emergency care and vehicles available twenty-four hours a day.
