This is truly one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen! Leaves & Lizards is somewhat tucked away but it's worth the little extra drive. I would strongly suggest a 4 wheel drive to handle the rugged gravel roads. We stayed in the Tucan cabin and the accomodations were absolutely fabulous; we even found fresh milk from their cows in the fridge! The view of Arenal from the cabin will take your breath away! The daily breakfasts are amazing; it's the best $4 you will ever spend! We had dinner at the restaurant as well since we didn't want to handle the roads after dark and really enjoyed the food and chatting with the other guests. Kudos to Debbie, Steve and the entire staff at Leaves & Lizards. They go out of their way to make your stay memorable. This place is such a treasure in La Fortuna!!!
