Known as the "City of Palms", Colima was founded in 1527 as Villa San Sebastián de Colima. It is a quaint city with some beautiful colonial architecture and monuments. Downtown Colima is made up of three Plazas lined up over 8 blocks. The main plaza has some government offices, the main church, shops, restaurants and the Hotel Ceballos. The next (middle) smaller plaza behind the church is more "the peoples park" where old guys sit, shoe get shined, etc. The third and largest plaza has more shops and hotels including Hotel Merced. One main entrance streets into Colima empties into one corner of this last plaza.
