Situated very near to Monteverde Cloud Forest, the Hotel Fonda Vela sits in peaceful landscaped grounds, surrounded by private nature trails.

The 40 classy but unpretentious rooms and suites have modern amenities and large windows (suites have a sitting room and private balcony), and the terrace has a view of the distant Gulf of Nicoya. Due to the isolation and peaceful setting, the gardens are ideal for quiet contemplation and watching birds: both parrot and toucan feed in the wild fruit trees, and quetzal are sometimes seen.
