Maleku Indian Village
My name is Mahima and I live in the village with my family at Arenal Maleku Condominiums on Lake Arenal Costa Rica
Welcome, in the Maleku language greets you when you enter the traditional village constructed here at Arenal Maleku Condos. Created to preserve Maleku culture and traditions, the village contains several structures built using traditional materials and techniques reinforcing our commitment to environmental and cultural sustainability.
Stroll into the Pre-Columbian themed traditional meeting hut to learn about native culture, food, and traditions from our Maleku teacher. Presentations are held daily, be sure to allow ample time to enjoy the sights and sounds of an ancient culture.
The Maleku have lived here in the Arenal area for centuries. Potshards and other relics are readily found on the shores of Lake Arenal. Today, the Maleku continue to create colorful authentic folk art that celebrates and preserves their ancient culture. Take a piece of Maleku culture home with you. Many of the locally crafted art items are available for purchase.
