Welcome to Ureca
This tiny village lies in a spectacular location in the southernmost region of Bioko and is one of the wettest places on earth, receiving some 10,450mm of rain per annum. During the dry season (November to January), turtles come ashore on the beaches at Ureca to lay their eggs. Four types of turtles are represented: Atlantic Green (Chelonia mydas), Leatherback (Dermochelys coriacea), Hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata) and Olive Ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea). When you're not sunning yourself on the beaches or watching the cycle of life unfold, there are excellent opportunities for hiking in the nearby jungle.
