Fonda vela is a hotel made up of seperate buildings scattered on beautiful grounds in the hills below the cloud forest. My suite was bright and airy, with a beautiful view of a garden with a fountain. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The pool, with its canopy roof and bar, has WIFI so is great for relaxing while you connect with the poor folks in the outside world. Dinners in the restaurant is average but I suggest the casado for lunch with the really good local beef. Pair it with a glass of the local Bavaria dark beer and you have the perfect lunch. Only down side is the hotel is far enough from town that a cab ride is about 12 dollars. But guides will pick you up at the hotel so there really isn't much need to go to town.
