Colima, Colima. - The Springs of Wellness Ecotourism Zacualpan are known to the inhabitants of the region as Ojo de Agua The Cobano. It is the sum of efforts and intentions of the Federal Government through the National Commission for Indigenous Peoples Development Commission, the State Government through its Ministry of Tourism and the City of Comala. They all cooperated in the planning, organization and operation of sustainable project that guarantees the preservation of the environment, employment for generations and social development.
Zacualpan is part of the municipality of Comala and is located off the Villa de Alvarez road to Minatitlan. Activities there include observing ecosystems, camping, farm tourism, craft workshops, photography, rural and recreational areas.
The town of Zacualpan is located on the slopes of Cerro Grande in a deep river valley. From the streets you can see across the river the towering walls of the canyon clearly showing the successive layers indicating forgotten eruptions over thousands of years. Most of its nearly 3,000 residents are officially Otomi although they lost their language and traditional dress but in many ways retain their Indian identity.
It is the only population of the state which recognizes communal property. Its festival for it's patron St. James the Apostle is held in January. The main economic activity is agriculture, livestock and services, and with special mention the cultivation of plums.
