Leaves and Lizards Arenal Volcano Cabin Retreat
Travel Blogs from La Fortuna
We've been at Leaves and Lizards for 2 days now and it's pretty idyllic.
We had a long and winding drive high over the ? Mountains to get here. It's the end of the rainy season so we went through the range from a full on pea souper to bright sun shine. The weather hasn't been all that hot which is just as well as izzy is already a bit …
Today was Izzys birthday and we went horse riding to a tropical waterfall right out of Castaway (the Brook Shields movie not the reality show) Riding here is quite different to how we've been taught and our hack could not have been more of a contrast to going round the country lanes of Cerney Wick on our riding school ponies. Here the horses don't …
We went to Mundo Adventura zip wires and went over the canopy at 60Kmph. There were 11 zip wires some were about 50 metres long and 20 metres high but one was almost a kilometre long and 180 metres high! We went from the top of the mountains across a gorge and past a huge waterfall. There was also a group of people from an indigenous tribe with …

But when I saw the zip wires suspended high above it and realised that was where we were headed, I thought I'd made a big mistake. There was no way I was going on that, never mind the kids.
Soon we were kitted out with …

TravelPod Member ReviewsLeaves and Lizards Arenal Volcano Cabin Retreat La Fortuna
We had a wonderful few days here with our two kids aged 10 and 14. We enjoyed just hanging out at our cabin (Toucan), watching the birds and the sloth outside the door. The horses were the best we've ever ridden and we had a very exciting ride through the countryside to an idyllic waterfall. The weather was a little cloudy but we still managed to see the tip of Arenal a few times. Breakfast was always entertaining with a big flock of parakeets coming to the feeders, plus the tame parrot. All in all a really great stay.
