The Hotel Fonda Vela is located in beautiful Monteverde with spectacular views of the Gulf of Nicoya. The Hotel Fonda Vela has nine buildings nestled in the landscaped property, designed with natural lighting, privacy and warmth. All have large windows with views of our forest allowing the outside beauty to be a part of a cozy interior. All rooms have private bath, hot water and 2 queen-size beds or a king size bed. Some rooms have three beds, making them ideal for families. On the 35-acre property, you will find lush forests and verdant pastures that are excellent for birding and hiking. In this tranquil setting, you may see many species of birds that come to feed in the fruiting trees, including the Resplendent quetzal, occasionally. A 15-minute walk away is the world famous 10,500-hectare Costa Rica’s famed Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve.
