Hotel Fonda Vela

Hotel Fonda Vela, Monteverde, Costa Rica


The Hotel Fonda Vela has deep roots in the Monteverde community. Originally a farm located just outside the founding Quaker settlement, it was converted into a hotel in 1990 by the two brothers who owned it, out of a desire to share their love for this magical place with a growing stream of visitors. Today, these fully remodeled lodgings afford a privileged encounter with the Costa Rican landscape.

The Hotel Fonda Vela is equipped with comfortable rooms and a full range of amenities. After you’re done surveying the rainforest from above in a canopy tour, you can stroll through the butterfly garden or go for a dip in the pool. At night, relax in one of the two Jacuzzis, or enjoy a drink at the poolside bar. Whatever you choose, in the Hotel Fonda Vela you’ll find a perfect blend of contemporary comfort and Monteverde tradition.
