My family had such a wonderful experience at Leaves and Lizards. We awoke each morning to an amazing view of the volcano and then ate fresh fruit with medicinal juices, coffee, and a delicious breakfast to start the day. We then embarked on a different adventure each day. We went horseback riding on two days to the waterfall and also for a walk in Orlando's Rain forest. We all fell in love with the horses who were gentle and incredibly well trained. Our guides, in particular Enrique, were incredibly knowledgable and we all felt so safe when they were by our side. Enrique taught us so much about nature, the wildlife in Costa Rica, the medicinal uses of plants in the Rainforest, the beauty of nature. We found a mommy sloth and baby in a tree on one of our horseback rides and Enrique taught us so much about these wonderful creatures. We also spent a day at Proyecto Asis where we toured and then feed animals IN THE CAGE including hand feeding papaya to baby monkeys as they jumped on us and allowed us to stroke their little hands. After 4 days we left for Nayara, a 5 star boutique hotel, close by which is number one in the area on Trip Advisor. While a lovely hotel, beautiful with great staff, it really did not compare to our adventure at Leaves and Lizards. Thank you Debbie and Steve.
