Experience the indigenous people of Costa Rica up close and personal with our Maleku Indigenous Cultural Tour! The Maleku is the smallest of seven indigenous tribes in Costa Rica, and they have graciously opened their world to us for an exclusive peek!
Numbering only 500, the Maleku people continue to practice and share their tribal customs and traditions with visitors from around the world, including you! Unique tribal dances, indigenous arts and crafts such as beautiful drums, gourd carvings, colorful pottery, and intricately woven baskets and tapestries are just some of the amazing things you can expect to experience in this once in a lifetime cultural opportunity. Visit with the Maleku families, hear their stories and legends and learn all about the medicinal plants used by the Maleku Tribe.
Cultural tours such as this are what allow the Maleku people greater economic prospects, worldly exposure, and enable them to market their arts and crafts. Support a local indigenous tribe and change your perspective, all in one day!
