Leaves and Lizards is easily the most personable lodging operation I have ever encountered, and I'm sure that everyone wants to return the favor with a stellar review. I'm going to be a bit more critical though, because I'm not sure I would recommend it to a friend. The retreat is both a place to stay and a provider of... More

If you are looking for a beautiful and relaxing cabin resort off the beaten path, Leaves and Lizards is for you. Rustic yet very comfortable, surrounded by rain forest yet close to dozens of exciting adventures and excursions. Go to their website and read their information - they do a fantastic job setting your expectations! My husband and I traveled... More

this review is not for the cabin retreat but for their horse program - although if they run their accommodations are anything like they run their stables, i'm sure the accommodations are equally fantastic! we went for horseback riding with our two boys (4 and 8). the debbie, enrique, chito, and steven took their time to get us acclimated with...

My fiance and I stayed at Leaves And Lizards over the Christmas holiday. It was a world of difference from living in the city. The best thing about yhe trip was the nights spent in our own cabin in the rainforest. It was the most romantic trip ever. We felt like we were the only ones in the resort. I... More

If you love Mother Nature and really, really nice people, this is a perfect place to relax, reconnect with those you love (two or four legged or winged) and just breathe in all that is good. Debbie and her staff (especially Hazel) had everything ready for us and then solved all the problems created by lost luggage (thanks to the... More

Vey difficult to describe L&L. We travelled with two boys aged 11 and 8 who have never been to the rainforest or any serious wilderness before. It was an eye opening trip for them for sure, in a good way. They immediately took to the wonderful horses (the waterfall trip is a must, thanks Enrique) and had a nice guided... More

We stayed in Hummingbird Hacienda right before Xmas and loved it. Woke to hummingbirds chattering in the beautiful landscaped garden around our "cabin" as well as a stunning view of Arenal. A jug of fresh milk to lighten our coffee was placed in the fridge every day, as well as juice. Breakfast was wonderful; you could watch parrots, kingfishers,and other... More

I didn't give this five stars, just so it wouldn't get buried in with all the other five star reviews. First, the title is spot on. This is not the place for everyone; but we found it to be perfect for us. We went in June, which is "rainy" or "green" season, and it did rain just about every day,... More

We've stayed with Debbie and Steve three times now, and every time is new and exciting! Gorgeous views of the volvano from private and very comfortable cabins. Excellent food served by friendly staff. Don't miss the horseback ride to the waterfall, and get the kids up early to help with light farm chores. No other place has such a warm... More

Leaves and Lizards is a beautiful and relaxing paradise set in the rainforest of Northern Costa Rica. It's a rough track as you near this paradise but, without doubt, worth it. The views from every cabin and the open air restaurant are spectacular, vistas of luscious green rainforest and the famous volcano Arenal, which casually smokes and takes on a... More
