Arenal Report

February 17, 2011

Lake Arenal’s relatively giant mountainside development, Arenal Maleku Condominiums, continues to move right along. At least one potential condo buyer showed up looking for directions to the condos recently, carrying a form granting prospective buyers a free stay. Maleku’s website at www.cantico.ca shows three existing buildings and sites for 19 more.

For those curious to learn about the development and its legal status with the environmental authorities, Zen Moisey, the developer, has invited Fuentes Verdes Ecological Association members to attend a meeting at the Maleku project on March 5 at 2 p.m., to learn “… our reality and the fulfillment of the requirements demanded by the government of Costa Rica.” Those wishing to attend are asked to e-mail    marbeth@cantico.ca.

March 5 is also the first day of the 20th annual Vuelta al Lago, the two-day, 175-kilometer bicycle circuit of Lake Arenal, an event that draws about 4,000 riders yearly. The first day’s ride starts at the central park in Tilarán at 9 a.m. and finishes at the central park in La Fortuna. That ride is mostly on unpaved road on the west side of the lake. The second day returns to Tilarán via the paved highway on the east side of the lake. The entry fee is ₡8,000 ($16). The racy website is at www.vueltaallago.net.

The Arenal Computer Club continues its monthly meetings at La Carreta Hotel in Tilarán at 1 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month.
