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 …

Jacana and my favorite American Pygmy Kingfishers! I watched the tiny king
Fisher dive into the water with a little plop and come out with tiny fish fry.
Everyone helped to the best of their novice ability to spot birds and ID them
from the book. I passed the Binoculars around for everyone to get a good look
at the birds.

... 12 different tours in Costa Rica. I am going to be running a trip that will be based out of the Maleku Indigenous Reserve, which will be primarily community-service based. I left, along with a couple fellow staff members for the community where I will be working. I loved the community immediately. Home to around 300 people, Panlenque Tonjibre holds the sort of genuine warmth that I love from the Latin American countryside. Narrow paths wind their ...
... and volcano. It was still drizzly and cloudy but the view was stunning.
After a quick change of shoes, we headed down to el Castillo village and visited the local Eco-zoo. It was a centre for snakes and other amphibians, reptiles, insects and butterflies mainly from Costa Rica but from other parts of the world too.

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.
