FEV is not just a hotel it is an educational, relaxing, active experience for those who want to learn about central american customs, language and way of life and eat wonderful food. It is set in a beautiful mountainous rain forest on an active coffee farm. There are miles of hiking trails, exotic plants, animals and birds, and a wonderful staff who is willing to share as much or as little as you want about their country, language and culture. Part of the experience is going into San Ramon, a small nearby town and learning about all the microbusinesses that have grown as a result of the social justice efforts of the founders of FEV.
