The Volcán de Colima, also known as the Volcán de Fuego, near Colima is considered Mexico's most dangerous active volcano and could be poised for eruption. Several explosive events took place in 1999 and there were two small eruptions in November 2000. Periodic explosions and lava flows have continued to May 2005. For updates and live images, try Universidad de Colima. The Volcán de Fuego is located near the northern border of the state of Colima, 60 miles northeast of Manzanillo.
