Wear a raincoat to visit this interesting village and discover another way of life.
A very different way of life.
If you visit Ureka, do bring a good raincoat, as this part of Equatorial Guinea is one of the rainiest areas in the world. The rain is the result of the clash of clouds from the west with the volcanoes of the Caldera and the Collado de Belebu. In Ureka, 20 miles south of Malabo, you will find a small town in the Bubi style, with a few wooden houses with their palm- thatched roofs. The most interesting points of the visit are the 'wueca' (a building that serves as the tourist office), the small waterfalls and ponds that are suitable for swimming, and the church, which also serves as a school. The tourist-friendly population of Ureka mainly engages in fishing, hunting and agriculture.
