Nomador Stopovers offer community members the option of a Stopover while travelling. They are offered to help develop international friendships between members of the Nomador community.
If you are willing to host a traveller from another country for a night or two, you can list a Stopover for your home.
Just five minutes east of the house is the Plaza Zentralia, a large shopping mall that has several department stores, lots of boutiques, a great food court, and a nice movie theatre. A Walmart is just ten minutes south, and along the main road outside the neighborhood there are numerous restaurants, all within walking distance.
Our dogs are a 9 year old shepherd-husky mix, a 4 year old yorkie-maltese mix, and a brother-sister pair of Chihuahuas. They're all very laid back, but the husky mix tends to get anxiety and requires someone who can be at home a lot with her.

Our home itself has three bedrooms, all of which have A/C. One is an office, but there is a queen sized air mattress that can be used in it. The master and guest room have king sized beds. We've been living in Mexico for a year and a half, and just moved to Colima in January, so every piece of furniture is new and in great condition. The house was designed to get the most shade and the best breezes, so it stays nice and cool on most days.
My favorite feature of our home is the private swimming pool. It's not large, but it's deep, with built in bench seating and a cut out in the kitchen wall to give easy access from the yard. It's perfect for the hot Colima days and mild nights. The yard is where we spend most of our time, just hanging out or swimming or barbecuing or playing with the dogs.
Comfort and Luxury
We have a large bookshelf with lots of books for people to choose from. Hector is pursuing photography and his photos can be seen in the office. Jennifer is a writer, her books are scattered about the house, as well.
The master bedroom and guest room both have king sized beds, and all rooms A/C units. The home has high ceilings and a great design, so it stays relatively cool throughout the day and night. The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge with an ice maker and water filter, as well as a dishwasher and pantry.
Tourism and Leisure
Downtown in the historical center are great restaurants, boutiques, old buildings, several large churches, as well as a couple museums and a small zoo.
Comala is a small town about twenty minutes north, a designated "Pueblo Magico" - it's a great place to go to buy authentic Mexican goods and walk around all the white washed buildings and the gorgeous square. A hot tourist spot and easy to get to.
If you like history, it's right at your doorstep - there's a 25,000-acre complex of stone pyramids on the northern edge of Colima, called "La Campana", and it dates back to 1500 BC. It was discovered in 1574, and features shaft tombs, ceramics offerings, storm drain systems, avenues and an administrative and religious center with numerous monuments. It's a fun way to spend the day. Or you can drive half an hour away and go to the Gruta de San Gabriel, an awesome cave system, owned and maintained by a private family deep in the farm land.
The small town of Cuyutlan and its fantastic beaches and the amazing Tortugario - a wildlife sanctuary where you can see the natural wet lands, turtles, crocodiles, and even release baby turtles back to the ocean! - are only an hour away, and the tourist spot of Manzanillo is one and a half hours away, so spending a day at the beach is just a short drive.
