HOTEL FONDA VELA
"The jewel of Monteverde Hotels"
From San José, take the Inter-American Highway north to the 149 km. road marker. Turn right just before crossing the Río Lagarto and continue for 39 km to Monteverde, following the signs to the Monteverde Reserve. A second option, a part way paved road of approximately 12 km in construction from Sardinal to Guacimal. The road is 11km before the Lagartos entrance coming from San José, (possibly in the near future this will be your the best option). It is the first entrance on the right side 1.3 km after the Aranjuez River and a restaurant called "La Cuenca". The Fonda Vela is located 2 Km from Monteverde Reserve.
What makes Hotel Fonda Vela so great? Take a look by yourself:
But there is more than that in the area of Monteverde. Once you are here, there are many attractions around the hotel, like: the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, the Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve, the Monteverde Cheese Factory, CASEM, and the Butterfly Garden.
