Leaves and Lizards was a wonderful breath of fresh air. We are from Florida and the lack of air conditioning was a concern for me but here you don't need it. The evenings were about 60 degrees and it was the so great to wake up hearing all the animals every morning. We stayed here for the first three days of our trip and we wish we could have stayed a few more. The pictures on their website don't do this place justice - we were very pleased with the cabins and surroundings. Giovany is an amazing guide - he really knows his animals and it is freakish how he can call them and they respond! Steve and Debbie were very nice and great hosts. We enjoyed fresh juice martini's at dinner each nite and Medeya makes tasty meals. I don't understand the review where they pushed tours on guests - we never got that and we didn't feel the prices were expensive - I don't know where else you can pay less to get personalized tours. The second place we stayed at was a resort and the resort tour prices were more for similar activities. I would highly recommend Leaves and Lizards to anyone that doesn't want to be in a touristy location - yes its out of the way - but its worth it!
