Indigenous tourist route ready to start operations

By A.M. Costa Rica staff

The rehabilitation of Los Maleku tourist route is over and ready to affect tourism, livestock, agriculture, employment and the quality of life of approximately 75,000 people in the northern areas of the country.

This project is part of the Weaving Development Program, promoted by the office of the First Lady, Mercedes Peñas. The work is considered strategic because it transverses the cantons of Guatuso, Upala, Los Chiles, and the province of Guanacaste.

The Maleku Route comprises 23 kilometers, of which 5.87 were supported by the Municipality of Guatuso in collaboration with the Inter-American Development Bank, the National Directorate for Community Development, the Ministry of Public Works and Transportation, the Ministry of Labor and the Development Association.

The remaining 17.13 kilometers will be supported in a second and third stage through contributions from the Rural Development Institute, the development bank and the local governments of Upala and Guatuso.

The road will provide access to internationally famous sites, several high-level hotels, as well as various micro-, small- and medium-sized business projects, and around 400 ventures distributed throughout the territory.

"Ruta Maleku is an emblematic project of the Weaving Development Program, not only because it perfectly represents our way of working, articulating institutions and joining forces, but because it responds to a need of the communities themselves and that goes beyond a road, it means economic activation and progress," said Peñas.
