About

The population is 1000 indigenous, and 80% speak the native dialect called Maleku Jaica. The purpose of this tour is to allow you to learn about the way of life of these indigenous groups in the present day and what they have done to keep their customs and traditions alive.

    The tour begins in La Fortuna at 8:00 am. After a 1 hour drive through the northern plains, you will arrive at the Indian community Palenque Tonjibe and be warmly received by their people. After a short presentation, you will begin a hike through the village to observe many important aspects of this unique place, such as the way they bury their dead, the antique type of home structures, and their artwork and craftsmanship which currently provide a means of income, the use of cocoa in their farming, and the creation of their clothing. Later you will continue with a walk along a forest trail with 600 meter long (0.37 miles) in order to learn about medicinal plants that the ancestors used, and how we benefit from them today. Here you will also observe some antique huacas or indigenous tombs. Finally you will pass through a Palenque were you will be treated to a traditional Maleku meal.
