Comala
Colima

The town of Comala, a 15 minute drive from Colima, known as the White Town for its whitewashed buildings, is a good place to watch how Mexicans relax, and to join them at it.  The restaurants on the south side of the plaza will feed you botanas (snacks) as you enjoy your beer.  Food included with your drinks is not free but very reasonable.

Waiters hustle around with endless trays of quesadillas, tacos, salsa and other Mexican munchies. Mariachis in traditional uniforms sing and strum, competing for space on the cobblestones or around your table.  It's a party that lasts all afternoon, every day, but with special gusto on the weekends.
