My girlfriends and I stayed at Leaves and Lizards for 5 nights on our stay in La Fortuna.
This place is absolutely amazing!! The view from the cabins is breathtaking, with a large picture window encompassing one whole wall facing the Arenal volcano.
Steve and Debbie make you feel at home, and will help you make any arrangements you need for your trip.
The food in the restaurant is excellent. Breakfast is included, and if you want to have lunch or dinner you just need to let them know ahead of time. We enjoyed both lunch one day and dinner one night, and were glad we did.
The staff is so friendly and helpful, and clearly love Steve and Debbie.
Don't miss their horseback riding tour to the waterfall, it was a highlight of our trip!
The cabins are about 30 minutes from town up in the mountains, so you will need a 4 wheel drive to get there. We thouroughly enjoyed this, although we did do alot of driving back and forth, as we also wanted to enjoy some of the nightlife in La Fortuna.
We enjoyed ziplining, white water rafting, rappeling, hiking, and horseback riding.
So if you don't mind being slightly "away from it all"...in fact, that is probably what alot of people are looking for...you can't find a better place to stay!!
