Nature & Gardens

Come visit the Hotel Fonda Vela and discover the beauty of Costa Rica's highlands.

On its 35 acres, the profound gift of Nature is what Hotel Fonda Vela offers our 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. You can also see a variety of reptiles, frogs, and small mammals. Some of the animals are indigenous to the area, and can only be found here. We have planted additional native trees and flowers to add to the beauty of the already existing forest.

Experience Hotel Fonda Vela's natural approach to life -- with style! Surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens, our 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. For example, large windows help to bring the outdoors inside. We also have a lounge/conference room and the delightful Canopy Bar. We know that you will enjoy your comfortable stay in the rustic luxury of Hotel Fonda Vela.
