Monteverde CR Need Help with hotel and recommendations for van drivers

Looking for 6 rooms for two nights (mid price) as we are a family of 11 visiting Costa Rica in June. Need to hire van to pick up from Liberia Airport. We plan to spend the next full day at Monteverde Cloud Forest (Canopy Tour) in a.m. and possibly zip lining in p.m.,
We will leave the area the next morning and have a driver take us to the Las Catalinas area were we will be for the next five days.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks so very much

We stayed at Fonda Vela in one of their junior suites and liked it. It's one of the hotels closest to the Reserve. Our room had two big beds, a small frig, and a bathtub which seemed nice because Monteverde is pretty rustic. Also nice trails and gardens; we saw toucans there. We usually just book a driver through our hotels when we reserve them. In town you can just call for taxis. The hotel also has a restaurant on site. They also have a pool, but it may be too chilly to swim. The area can get quite cold at night.

Sheila - where in Las Catalinas area are you staying? There is pretty nice snorkling at Playa Dantita, just around the rocks at the north end of Playa Danta . Playa Danta is right in front of Las Catalinas.
