Travel Blogs from La Fortuna
We've been at Leaves and Lizards for 2 days now and it's pretty idyllic.

Needless to say it was pretty scary/ exciting/ awesome. The prior zip lines really get you ready for the last leg of the tour. I was not so sure about what I was about to do next though.

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.
