Colima: Alejandro Rangel Hidalgo

Comala, one of oldest town in Mexico and a designated Pueblo Magico (magical town), is a historical colonial town in Colima. It sits in the shadow of Colima's famous volcano of fire, Volcan de Fuego.

The volcano is one of the most active in Mexico and North America, and we saw it burp and spew plume!

Located just outside of Comala is La Hacienda de Nogueras, home to famous Mexican artist Alejandro Rangel Hidalgo, well-known for his series of Christmas cards produced for UNICEF in the 1960s.

The hacienda is a large ecological reserve with beautiful botanic gardens. The University of Colima created a museum and a cultural centre where a collection of Hidalgo's art and other pre-Hispanic ceramics can be seen.
