-The Elephant's Rock:
It is located on the Juluapan
Peninsula and less than an hour away from Manzanillo. It is an authentic
caprice of the wind and erosion, which came together to carve the
image of a colossal pachyderm in a rock, creating a singular sculpture
that amazes locals and visitors alike.
It is located on a beach of serene and transparent waters ideal for the practice of snorkelling. It has a depth of 20 metres and its submarine landscape is plagued with coral reefs.
-University Museum of Archaeology:
It was inaugurated
in 1996 and exhibits objects of great artistic value that allow
knowing the cultural roots of the region, inhabited by important
pre-Hispanic peoples such as the Comala, Capacha, Ortices, Periquillos,
Colima and Armería.
The Museum has two triangular buildings as its seat, connected by a small plaza resembling an ancient ceremonial place. The architectonic compound is located on the continuation of Benito Juarez Avenue, unnumbered, occupying an area of 1500 square metres.
More than 1800 original objects from the said cultures can be appreciated at its five exhibition rooms. There are also reproductions of the tombs of Tiro, which belong to the Comala family and date back to the years 300 to 500 AD.
While part of the vast collection of 18000 pieces, of great historic and cultural value, that was donated by the University of Colima, the institution in charge of the Museum, are exhibited in the second building.
