Some people enjoy the sounds of the ocean while they sleep, others enjoy the jungle, some enjoy peace and quiet, but few ever think to fall asleep listening to the distant rumblings of a volcano erupting, which can be safely done at Cabañas del Volcán. North of Colima, in the Colima state of Mexico, Cabañas del Volcán, Tour X Volcán and Frescos y Orgánicos come together as one company to offer a sustainable ecolodge and ecotourism experience in Mexico near the foot of one of the tallest mountains in North America. Volcán de Colima is very much awake and makes everyone aware of this daily – usually multiple times a day. Otherwise known as Volcano of Colima, this experience almost guarantees eruptions of smoke, ash and smouldering rock, creating magnificent long-explore photos for photography buffs.
The construction of cabins at Cabiñas del Volcàn takes advantage of geothermal activity in the area when the sun sets and the nighttime air naturally cools in the cabins. The location is at higher elevation than the rest of Colima state. On the top of the neighbouring dormant volcano, Volcán de Fuego, it often snows at the summit in the winter months. Each cabiña is constructed of clay, stone, bamboo and mainly local materials from nearby.
While staying at this ecolodge in Mexico, you’ll be treated to fresh grown produce from the fertile volcanic soils surrounding the area, as well as meat farmed organically and sustainably on-site.
Recreational eco-tours can be arranged through Tour X Volcán to discover and learn about the volcanic landscape surrounding the cabiñas. Hikes, canopy tours and horseback rides depart from Cabiñas del Volcán each day offering a different perspective of and getting close to the powerful volcano.
Educational tours can be taken through Tour X Volcán through a partnership with the University of Colima and affiliated partners.
Tour X Volcán partners with Inventionem who offers classes and interpretive tours in research, innovation, sustainability, sustainable development, climate, architecture and agroecology.
