Hotels and weather

We plan to stay in a hotel near the Town of Santa Elena late April. Are there any hotels in this area that have hear or a/c and would we need it this time of year.

Thanks in advance

Air conditioning is not needed in Monteverde as average daytime highs are in the low to mid-70's and night time lows are usually in the low 60's. Check out Morpho's for dinner. It's a lot of fun, enjoy.

None of the hotels in the Montverde/Santa Elena Area have a/c. It is not needed at all, it is a cloud forest area and usually it does not get hot all.

The area stays pretty cool; when we were there, we actually had to wear sweatshirts and fleece jackets at night, and our hotel had the fireplace going.
