Colima, Mexico

Take refuge from the harsh winter weather and enjoy some of the best flying of your life. Perfect weather, phenomenal soaring, great food and friendly people. Colima is a world renowned flying site that few people get the opportunity to visit. It avoids the dreaded swarms of pilots found in Valle de Bravo, leaving us with the sky all to ourselves. Newly-certified P2 pilots all the way up to experienced cross country pilots are enchanted by this magical place. Regardless of your experience level, you will come away from this trip with new personal bests in the air. Not to mention slightly more humble on the ground as you encounter Mexican hospitality in its purest form. 

Flying

Colima offers a pleasant mix of mountain and flatland flying with plentiful thermals kicking off from 11:00 am onwards. Daily conditions are consistently soarable and by midday you’re likely to find yourself skied out over launch. It’s a great opportunity for newer pilots to hone-in their thermaling skills and maybe even try their first cross country flight. For more experienced pilots, Colima offers XC routes up valley towards the breathtaking Colima Volcano. 

We wrap up the trip with a visit to Tapalpa if the weather looks good for it. This is a huge mountain site with the potential for long smooth sledders to start the morning and reliable thermal soaring throughout the afternoon.

Accommodation

We’re proud to offer lodging that meets the standards that we’re accustomed to back home. The hotel we’ll be staying in is every bit what you hope for when you think “Mexican vacation”. The facilities are all modern, wifi is complementary, and the rooms offer everything you need after a long day of flying. Within close proximity to the restaurant there are incredible food options all over town, including the best tacos in Mexico!
