Hotel Fonda Vela

Hotel Fonda Vela features spacious and nice rooms in a very cozy environment.  With a nice covered pool, hot tub and 2 restaurants on site, this small hotel is one of our favorites in Monteverde. Fonda Vela has rainforest all around it and great views of the Sunsets over the distant Gulf of Nicoya.  Large windows in the rooms help to bring the outdoors inside.  Gardens and tranquil artwork make this small hotel unique and fun.
