About Hotel El Viandante
It has never occurred to us that we would own a hotel and get settled in Central America. Yet here we are, one turn after another, fate brought Renzo from Italy to Costa Rica first, then Grace from the States. Eventually, we landed ourselves at this little oasis in Monteverde where we thought would be the best place to raise a family. Since we enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and sharing our own travel experience, running a hotel suddenly seemed like the ideal solution for us. Monteverde’s serenity and its diverse beauty provide a magnificent stage for creating unforgettable memories. Combining our dreams, we have created a special and unique destination for our guests to enjoy, and we are proud and pleased to welcome you to our Hotel El Viandante
El Viandante means “The Traveler” in Italian. Established since 2005 and renovated in 2009, Hotel El Viandante provides clean and cozy rooms for travelers to rest, to plan, to reflect, and to reconnect to nature.
El Viandante is surrounded by wonderful nearby places to explore and visit but during down time when the harsh weather keeps the guests inside, the guests can engage in a board game with their company in our spacious breakfast room, or enjoy themselves with a book & a cup of hot tea in our enclosed porch area with the forever morphing weather in view.We take pride in knowing our guests are comfortable and feel welcome and at home at El Viandante. Whether it is a restaurant recommendation, a neat hiking spot, or driving direction to La Fortuna, we keep our guests well informed, so they can get the most out of their already limited vacation.
We are the El Viandante Family
