EXPAND YOUR WORLD AS YOU FLOW WITH FULFILLMENT

A little more about our Activities and our Destinations…

Rincon de La Vieja translates to "The Old Woman's Corner", a reference to the local legend about Princess Curubanda, a native girl whose lover was thrown into the crater by the tribes Chief, her father. She vanished from the village and became a recluse living on the mountain. She soon became credited with powers of healing as her time alone on the mountain made her wise with Earth wisdom. It was here, in her corner of the mountain, that villagers would go to seek healing. Beyond the legend, Rincon de La Vieja has everything you could want in a National Park – beautiful hiking trails, mountain peaks, scenic waterfalls, bubbling geysers, remarkable hot springs, abundant wildlife, AND it's amazingly uncrowded!

Rio Celeste National Park Known as one of the most magical rivers in Costa Rica, it is also well known in the world by its particular natural color from light blue to turquoise. It has been recognized as one of the favourite places in Costa Rica by locals and foreigners because the geological phenomena in changing it's transparent water.

Arenal Volcano hovers over La Fortuna as an idealized mystic mountain full of fiery and transformative energy. We’ll enjoy soothing in natural hot springs, taking in precious Volcanic views, explore the lush and fertile lands

Monteverde is truly unmatched with its diversity of living wonders. From the renowned Resplendent Quetzal cherished within the Reserves to the iridescent Blue Morpho Butterflies fluttering free, Monteverde’s natural marvels will leave you charmed. If there ever was such a thing as fairies and dragons they exist here among the wild orchids and fireflies.

We end our journey along the Pacific Shores of the Guanacaste Coast for beach time, yoga in the sand, surf lessons and more natural magic. Known for its spectacular beauty and the host of wildlife thriving within the tropical dry forest, here is where we definitely get the chance to mingle with the monkeys, splash in warm waves and soak up the rays of sunlight. The pristine shoreline and crystal blue waters of Playa Grande make this one of the most beautiful beaches in Guanacaste.

OUR SUSTAINABLE ECO-FRIENDLY LODGING

Choosing A Sustainable Future

Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin:

We know our location is privileged at the foot of the magnificent Rincon de la Vieja Volcano in Guanacaste, Costa Rica – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For this reason, our family has taken great care of our ranch land and surrounding forest for nearly half a century. We know that our efforts in conservation can have far-reaching effects, both in our little corner of the world and beyond.

We are committed to sustainable tourism in Costa Rica, and are proud that Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin holds the third level of the strict Certification for Sustainable Tourism (CST) program by the Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT). We are always working to improve our practices.

We follow a “farm-to-table” philosophy in our hotel restaurant, producing much of our food that we serve on our ranch. What we don’t grow or raise ourselves, we buy from sustainable local vendors.

Hotel Fonda Vela: 

"The climate is refreshing, often referred to as "eternal spring". The views of the Gulf of Nicoya from the hotel's 1,400 meter (4,200 foot) elevation are spectacular. Monteverde is an ideal destination for relaxing and enjoying the wonders of the tropics. A visit of at least two nights or more in Monteverde is recommended.

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.

The Fonda Vela was built with the idea of being a nurturing experience, environmentally, culturally and spiritually. Our guests play an important part in fulfilling this dream.

With the mysterious veils of mist and phenomenal sunsets, Costa Rica has drawn us back to nature. It is the spirit and feelings that brought us here that we want to share with you, our guests."
