Dear Marilyn, thank you for your review. It is amazing that even after 2 years, I remember working with your boys, I was privileged to facilitate the process as the horses worked with them. The capacity of horses to help humans always amazes me! They...More

So, the “pluses” for this place: beautiful huge cabina with a spectacular view; good food in the restaurant; friendly and knowledgeable staff who made excellent recommendations and arrangements for tours for us. The only “minus” is that it is quite a drive, over somewhat difficult...More

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.
