The southern Sierra Madre mountain range (Sierra Madre del Sur) runs through Colima, creating a diverse climate which is cool in the highlands and hot along the coast. Colima's mountains include two volcanoes, the active Volcán de Fuego (3820 m) and the extinct Volcán Nevado (4240 m). The average yearly temperature is 25° C, with highs around 36° and lows around 7°.

Manzanillo shares the same latitude as Hawaii giving the state of Colima some of the best weather in Mexico.

Hurricane season runs from June through October. The last big hurricane to hit Manzanillo was in 1959. There is a small piece of land, Cabo Corrientes, that helps direct most hurricanes farther north to Puerto Vallarta or Cabo San Lucas on the Baja.
