The Cariari B&B is located in a lovely residential neighborhood between the San Jose airport and the downtown core. It's easy to get to from SJO (12 minutes by taxi!) and a lot nicer place than the sterile, boring chain hotels around the airport. The innkeeper, Laurie, is a delight. She knows San Jose and Costa Rica well and can... More

Our last stop was Cariari B&B in Costa Rica and we had been living there for four nights and felt living at our own home. 1) Laurie is a kind and lovable and hospitable lady; 2) Miriam is a hard working and helpful and nice assistant(De acachimba); 3) The B&B itself is beautiful, clean, and comfortable; 4) Our room is...

We live in Costa Rica but 3.5 hours from San Jose. We often have to leave the airport very early in the morning or arrive at the airport too late to drive home, and a place like Cariari B&B is the perfect place to spend the night. It's a beautiful home on the bank of a narrow but fast flowing... More

Cariari B & B is perfect. Welcoming and well-located, it is an excellent place to land in Costa Rica, and it is also a great launching pad, being less than 10 minutes from the airport. Beyond that, it is a LOVELY guesthouse. Roomy, attractive, welcoming. And the breakfast is the one you were hoping for. Laurie is a marvelous host.

Laurie is a very friendly, welcoming host who went out of her way to help us. The breakfast was amazing certainly the best i have had in all 4 visits to Costa Rica. This is an idea base to explore the central valley or use as a stop over at the beginning or end of your trip to Costa Rica... More

Laurie goes out of her way to assist her guests. When we needed a GPS, Laurie volunteered her Garmin! Our room was very comfortable and spacious. The breakfasts were delicious and filling with a multitude of choices and all the fruit you could possibly consume. If you wish to play golf, Laurie can arrange a round....oh was that that nice!...

Laurie treated us as though we were family members. My daughter developed shingles during our Christmas holidays visit in 2013. Laurie immediately arranged for medical help and medications. She went way beyond what anyone would expect of an inn keeper.as well as seeing to it that we would enjoy all the many events offered during that time of the year.... More

I could tell from the e-mails received from Laurie in advance of our visit that she was going to be the kind of B&B host you dream of! My cousin and I spent our first night here, before departing for Arenal. From Laurie's personal, warm welcome at our late-night arrival, to sitting and chatting with us over a lovely breakfast...
