Leaves and Lizards Retreat
Leaves and Lizards offers various organized retreats throughout the year and is open for 3 or more night stays for groups, families or individual travelers. We offer equine assisted learning retreats based on EponaQuest methods for personal growth and inspiration. Our stable of 20, well cared for horses, are trained using the principles of natural horsemanship. Trek by horseback through the jungle, taking your horsemanship skills to a new level with horsepeople like Shelley Rosenberg, Stay Westfall and David Lichman. Join well known photographers, Tony Stromberg and Rob Knight, photographing the beautiful scenery in Costa Rica during our special photography workshops. Our rural tourism program enables guests to discover the real Costa Rica, off the beaten path of mainstream tourism. Private cabins are spread out on 26 acres of beautiful hills overlooking the majestic, smoking Arenal Volcano. The Lava Lizard restaurant serves farm - to -table fresh meals, with many ingredients produced on our working farm. Guests are welcome to help on the farm. We have chickens (for eggs and meat), make our own cheese, ice cream and butter and serve seasonally/locally grown produce. We can cater to special diets upon request.
