The last few km of 4x4 road are rough, but worth it to take you literally off the beaten (tourist) track. When we did pass through La Fortuna on our way to some tours, we were so glad we were staying at L&L. The privacy of and the views from the casitas are awesome. I would highly recommend the tour...

I was lucky enough to spend two wonderful weeks at Leaves and Lizards. Every morning I awoke to birds singing, hummingbirds flitting about, toucans soaring past, and a wonderful direct view or the Arenal Volcano. Debbie and Steve were great hosts and made me feel like part of their family. Horsebackriding is onsite and the other tour options were about... More

What a wonderful friendly and accommodating couple! They are from Florida. They really try to meet all your needs to make your stay comfortable and memorable (they are relatively new and perfecting more all the time). We had fun conversations, a great breakfast each morning is included, beautiful views from the cabins, views of the valcano on a clear day,... More

I had a great time. Everyone was extremely friendly. Debbie and Steve went out of their way to accomodate us in any way to make sure we were able to explore and do as much as we can on our trip. Leaves and Lizzards have many contacts for travel guides that know the best places to go. They have experienced... More

Our first stop on our two week trip in Costa Rica. This is a great place if you are looking for horseback riding and relaxation and you don't want to stay in La Fortuna. It is located approximately 40 minutes drive from La Fortuna in a town called Monterrey. Our hosts Debbie and Steve were very accomodating and the food... More

Hey, thanks for the advice! Most of our guests enjoy reading at night. The new mosquito netting over the beds adds romance and a barrier for the moths that are attracted to the reading light. -Steve and Deb More

The stay we had with Steve and Debbie was great. We had just come from the humid Pacific coast and the weather at their place was breezy, cool at night and in the 70's during the day. The cabins were new with modern bathrooms, large tile shower and exotic wood floors and a huge picture window looking out over the... More

We spent six nights at Steve and Deb's cabin retreat. The last 3km of our journey was bumpy but soon forgotten once we arrived. Our cabin was perfect! Modern, but rustic, clean, comfortable, quiet, and peaceful. The views of Arenal, the valley, and surrounding countryside were spectacular. And, of course, we heard the howler monkeys each and every night. We... More

Our trip to Costa Rica was amazing and one of the highlights was our stay at Leaves and Lizards. It is quiet, relaxing, beautiful cabins and Steve and Debbie made us and our children feel right at home. The service and food was personalized to our families needs and everyone was so welcoming and friendly. The horseback ride to a... More
