          Is the location good for seeing monkeys?

          Hi, this is Debbie the owner, we do have occasional monkeys on site, generally speaking this area hosts 3 kinds of monkeys in the large tracks of forested areas and a prolific amount in the Rio Frio area north of here.

          No need for AC at Leaves and Lizards. The weather is beautiful all year 'round, and the cement blocks keep the rooms cool.

          What is the best time of the year to visit? Debating between December vacation and June? or just wondering in general. Thanks!

          I would recommend June or July over December. Better weather and less expensive, generally speaking.
