Visit Riaba


This small town on the eastern coast of the island has played a fundamental role in the history of Equatorial Guinea, founded by the Portuguese Ramos de Esquivel, the islands first settler in 1507.

Archaeologists have found numerous ceramic helmets with decorations dating back to the end of the Carbonera (10th century).


Some houses and administrative buildings are part and parcel of this borough, which accommodates about 250 to 300 inhabitants.


We will discover the town’s secrets together. First, we will get to know other important cities, such as Rebola and Baney. In turn, we will tour historic towns such as Basuala Mission. We will trek through the jungle from a small village next to Riaba to Balboa beach where a  Bilola dish will be waiting for us. Afterwards, a dip on the beach is compulsory before going for a walk around the city and back home at ¨The farm¨ Here we will be able to experience the manufacturing process to make cheese and meats.

Rumbo Malabo es una agencia profesional y 100 % confiable, lo que se agradece sobre todo en un país donde viajar no es tan sencillo y donde hay que dejar muchas gestiones en manos de agentes locales. Ellos se encargan de facilitar todos los trámites necesarios, de velar por tu comodidad y seguridad y de ofrecerte paquetes con los que conocer la Guinea real: sus calles, su naturaleza, su gente. A veces uno piensa que se va a encontrar con los típicos "todo incluido" de resort de Punta Cana en los que acabas enjaulado y viendo lo que te enseñan los del hotel. Todo lo contrario pasa con esta agencia, especializada en turismo sostenible y que de verdad te lleva a conocer la isla de Bioko como si fueras un habitante más.

I have travelled to Equatorial Guinea with this company and had great assistance and service all the time. The company answers very quickly, provides help to get the Visa, sorted all my papers to go through immigration and quarantine. I visited between the 22nd and 28th of November 2021, great service, recommended.

I really enjoyed the tour of Camasa Finca Sampaka with Rumbo Malabo. The group was small which made the experience even better. Tours like this are important for nationals and tourists so we can understand the history of our country and see what we have to offer to ourselves and possibly the rest of the world. Can't wait for the next excursion!
