I have had the privilege of being a guest and staying at MonteLargo several times over the past few years. The accommodations are very clean and the grounds are simply beautiful. Dennis is an excellent host. He is a great pleasure to visit with and hear about his work and crusade of protecting animals and rebuilding endangered species.
The location is close to San Jose, close to the San Jose International Airport and only an hour and a half to the Pacific beach or several hours to different volcano parks, white water rafting and many other fun things to do.
I can definitely recommend MonteLargo as a great place to visit and Dennis is a great host. I believe that you will thoroughly enjoy your visit to MonteLargo.
I think that we have a lot to learn from the animal kingdom. My son, Dennis, has dedicated his life to the care and well-being of the animal kingdom. My favorite is the cute little Marmoset monkey. I like the close family bonds they have. And I like the beautiful Scarlet Macaws which mate for life.
Every time I come to Costa Rica I plan on doing some sightseeing. But it is always so enjoyable being around all of the animals at ZOO AVE that I feel no need to do much except enjoy my surroundings. However, when I do take time to go sightseeing there are so m any things to do within an hour and a half, whether it is seeing a volcano or the ocean or the jungle.
I am very proud of my son’s accomplishments. Please come and visit. You will be very glad that you had the opportunity to see one of the best places in Central America protecting and rebuilding endangered animal species.
