Leaves and Lizards Volcano Cabin Retreat, Costa Rica

About us

Leaves and Lizards is a sanctuary in the rainforest at the base of the Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica.

Surrounded by glorious nature, away from the stresses of daily life, guests are nourished with farm-to-table fresh food, natural water, massage and yoga, all provided by caring staff on-site. Enjoy our beautiful infinity-edge swimming pool, Tiki bar, outdoor yoga deck and our comfortable and uniquely designed accommodations - a retreat and natural feel, without giving up any of the creature comforts.

Our herd of 28 horses live in the surrounding pastures and we have re-forested the whole property so each cabin has a private, rainforest vibe. The rooms, restaurant, pool and bar have stunning views of the Arenal Volcano. 

We offer a variety of retreats throughout the year and we are available for hire for outside retreat organisers. We are also open at certain times for guests to come and stay.  The surrounding area is one of the must-see areas on the tourist trail, with glorious nature based and adrenaline activities (hiking, ziplining, canyoning, hot springs etc).

Current retreats include: experiential learning with horses, yoga, reiki, meditation, photography and personal development retreats.

You are wiser than you think, just slow your thoughts down, and when the inner noise ceases, wisdom will have chance to speak.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
