Pedro de Ursúa (1526 – 1561) was a Spanish Navarrese Basque conquistador from Baztan (Kingdom of Navarre) in the 16th century. In Panama, Ursúa subdued a Cimarron (ex-slave) revolt by tricking Cimarron leader Bayano into coming unprepared to negotiate a truce, but then captured him and sent him back to King Philip II of Spain.

Together with Ortún Velázquez de Velasco, Pedro de Ursúa founded the city of Pamplona, Colombia, on November 1, 1549.

Ursúa later searched the Amazon region for El Dorado with Lope de Aguirre. When Ursúa would not allow Aguirre's mistress on the expedition, Aguirre conspired with another officer, Fernando de Guzman, to use this rejection as a pretext to start a riot in which they assassinated Ursúa and seized power.
