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

We visited Leaves and Lizards in August and none of us wanted to leave! Everyone there feels like family! We stayed in the Hobbit House and it was the most amazing home with an absolutely incredible view! The facilities are amazing. You eat meals in this amazing open air building with gorgeous views of the volcano. The dining is intimate... More

I did 2 Epona workshops over 2 weeks. Words cannot do justice to my experience, but I will try. >> I live in a corporate world, in the city, where it is incredibly hard to keep your head in touch with your heart. That reconnection is what the Epona experience enables, plus so much more. >> The other words I... More

This is the place to stay near the Arenal volcano. The views from the cabins and dining area are spectacular. The owners and staff felt like family after a few days. We were on a photography tour and wish we could have stayed here the whole time. The diversity of birds on the property was very cool. Be prepared to... More

I have been there 4 years in a row with my photo group. I look foreword to our stay at Leaves and Lizards and feel as though I have made friends there. Everyone there is wonderful and helpful.

My family and another couple shared 3 nights in the hummingbird house and can't say enough. The views were breathtaking, the service was terrific, and the "local things" to to were abundant. It was exactly what we were looking for. If your looking for quiet, peaceful place where life slows down...then choose Leaves and Lizards. Just f.y.i. - getting to... More

I just took my photography tour group to Leaves & Lizards for the fifth year in a row. The accommodations, staff, food and view have never let me down. My group booked the entire resort this year and we were treated to the same high level of service and attention that I'm used to there. The restaurant is a good... More

This was our 2nd trip to Leaves and Lizards and it was every bit as good as the first, although quite a contrast as this trip was during rainy season. Our trip was MUCH rainier than the previous, in fact, the volcano came out for only about 10 minutes at 5:30 am one morning, but we didn't let it stop... More
