I was here for 9 days. Absolutely inspired by everyone there. Friendly and accommodating. The eponcity program is very enlightening-I learned a lot about me in a few short days. The horses are well taken care for and that is evident in the way they...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.
