Colima’s tourist office is located in the main doorway of the interior of the Governor’s Palace. This conveniently located office also has very friendly staff. They are open Monday through Friday from 9am until 3pm, and then again from 6pm to 9pm. On Saturday they are open from 9am to 1pm. The staff speak broken English. If you are unsure of an attraction, or how to get from one place to another, the tourist office is your best resource and source of travel information.
I was impressed with the travel help that I received when I visited this office. They have lots of complimentary tourist information and can provide recommendations for restaurants and hotels.
A number of generalized information about Colima are published in a variety of Mexico guidebooks. Lonely Planet is one of the most detailed. Unfortunately the author of Birnbaum died prematurely in the early 90’s- as we used to use his book exclusively for Mexico travel. Lonely Planet’s Mexico book sells for about $20 and can be found in most travel sections in various book stores.
