The Hotel Fonda Vela is located in the heart of Monteverde. The views of the Gulf of Nicoya from the hotel's 4,200 foot elevation are spectacular.
Surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens, buildings are an attractive part of the lush, tropical mountainside. The rooms are cozy, yet elegant, spacious and comfortable. Each room is designed with the environment in mind. Large windows help to bring the outdoors inside.
On its 35 acres, the profound gift of Nature is what Hotel Fonda Vela offers guests. Situated near the continental divide, Hotel Fonda Vela is home to some sixty different species of migratory birds, and over 200 species of non-migratory birds. It is possible to see the rare Resplendent Quetzal, Three-wattled Bellbird, the Blue Crowned Motmot, the Swallow-tailed Kites, and a great variety of hummingbirds.
