Description


You will know the Maleku indigenous culture, its language and its traditions, in order to understand its present and support the protection of the cultural legacy for future generations.

Arenal Mundo Aventura, not only offers adventure activities and environmental education; the Ecological Park during its 8 years of existence has acquired the commitment to protect the cultural roots.

This is why: Villa Maleku was created, an opportunity open to anyone who wishes to share and learn more about the Costa Rican legacy. The Maleku indigenous community is one of the 24 different indigenous territories in Costa Rica; but unfortunately, they fight day by day to try to preserve their beliefs, culture and traditions.

The Indigenous Cultural Rescue Project proposes that students, families and people from all over the world can visit this small representation and thus make future generations aware of the importance of language: their favorite food: "the mufuriseca", medicinal plants such as "the hawk" And "la cuculmeca", dazas, ceremonies, rituals for burials are just a taste of everything you will learn, but the most important thing will impact more than 30 families that are within this program in a positive way
