Colima, also known as Fuego de Colima, is one of North America's most active volcanoes

Frequent eruptions have been recorded since the 16th century.

A complex succession of eruptions that has been dominated during the past century by lava effusion associated with lava dome growth has also produced explosive eruptions of varying magnitude and frequent pyroclastic flows.
