The site visit Urbina Bay is located on the east base of Alcedo volcano. The trail starts at the beach where a wet landing is made; the tour is about 3200m, and substrates through sand, pumice, lava, coral and vegetation in an area of the coast that suffered an uprising; you can also appreciate burrowing land iguanas.

The trail passes basis of what was a structure of coral. During the uprising occurred in 1954, 6 km reef were raised five meters, the coast 3/4 mile spread out. It is said that after the uprising was an eruption in the north-east flank at a height of 650 m Alcedo volcano in the same year, but no concrete evidence. There is an area where there rhyolite (igneous rock produced by the violent exit to the outside of the earth) in this place where no vegetation grows by the acidity of this type of substrate. This extrusive rock when a magma of the same chemical structure as granite, acidic or felsic magma reaches the earth's surface is formed.

It is an ideal place to observe red lobster (Panulirus penicillatus) and blue (Panulirus gracilis) site.

Special indications

Protect your camera equipment well as the landing can be problematic due to strong waves there often on this site.

Bring water for the hike because the trail is long and the place is very hot.

Do not take pieces of coral. Corals exposed to air quickly deteriorate and should not be touched.
