My husband and I stayed at L&L for four nights during Easter week with our 11 year old daughter and 9 year old son. What a wonderful place! Debbie and Steve are amazing hosts whose love for the country, its people and the land are apparent. They want to share the real Costa Rica with you, and they are terrific... More

Everything was perfect during our stay at Leaves and Lizards. Debbie and Steve went above and beyond my expectations to accommodate my family and help us have an incredible experience in Costa Rica. The private cabins with the view of Arenal Volcano where enchanting. Our gourmet meals were delicious. The bird watching was outstanding. The staff made our stay feel... More

We spend four nights at Leaves and Lizards as part of our two week honeymoon and really we wished we'd spent the whole two weeks here, as nothing else for the rest of the trip compared. We stayed in the volcano cabin with an amazing view of the volcano (on a clear day). We really couldn't fault L&L. Firstly the... More

Number one, the photos of Leaves and Lizards DO NOT justify what you will see and expect. Steve and Debbie are wonderful hosts. The Road in to the resort is a nightmare and one aspect that cannot be improved, but it is well worth the drive to get to one of the best places to stay in Costa Rica. Be... More

My husband and 7yo son spent 5 days at L&L in early April and loved it, but admit the rural experience may not be for everyone. Here are the indisputable positives; our cabin was clean, cozy and had just the right amount of amenities -- beer in fridge, coffee maker, awesome volcano view w/ hammocks, hair dryer, rocking chairs and...

We stayed 3 nites at this charming B & B. All separate cabins have huge views of the smoldering active volcano. Clean, hardwood floors, great linens, Wifi, nice bathrooms and a fabulous included breakfast made it a winner. We opted for purchasing dinner on site and were not disappointed. The owners Debbie and Steve rcouldn't be nicer. THey were accommodating... More

Leaves and Lizards is located off the beaten path-- literally. It is located off of a main asphalt road near a little town called Monterrey. You then drive up a decent gravel road for a mile or so. Then you drive up and down muddy hills filled with ruts and huge river stones (make sure to have the 4x4). It's... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our trip around Costa Rica. It was an amazing place! We had a 4x4, which was really a necesity to get to L&L as it is in quite a remote location. The location of it is really a bonus. You are close enough to the volcano, lake and spas to get to them... More
