Economy and Infrastructure

Colima agglomeration

Villa de Álvarez and the capital Colima form an economic conurbation. The two cities have differentiated themselves in such a way that the Villa de Álvarez is mainly used for living, while Colima is more for companies and businesses. Colima and Villa de Álvarez have a common public transport system. Political differences in the past meant that cooperation at the political level largely failed to materialize.


Long-distance transport

Colima Airport (International Airport Code: CLQ) offers travelers various national connections to Mexico City and Tijuana every day . Another important connection for goods traffic is the railway line and the motorway between Manzanillo and Guadalajara . For travelers, there are also daily national connections from the bus station to destinations all over Mexico.

Local transport

Taxis are relatively cheap in Villa de Álvarez and Colima, and another very inexpensive way to get around is the city's bus system. There are no fixed bus schedules or stops (with the exception of the large avenues and in the center), you get on or off at the corners. Without exception, all bus routes are circular; H. there is no opposite direction of the same line.

The small bus station Central de los Rojos is located near the center of Colima and offers trips to the surrounding area. It is also served by most urban lines. Rojos is therefore an important hub for changes within the city and for excursions into the surrounding area (to Manzanillo ).
