We landed in San Jose at 8 pm on a Saturday night after a long-haul flight from Europe. Laurie at the Cariari Bed & Breakfast was the perfect place for us to unwind, sleep off the jet-lag and get ready for our holiday in Costa Rica. Very peaceful, clean and welcoming. Breakfast was amazing, including the best banana bread we... More

A wonderful Bed And Breakfast to sip wine on the terrace, sleep well in a lovely room and be treated to a very tasty and delicious homemade breakfast. We even bought their coffee, it is wonderful. Susan and John "

I have stayed at Cariari B&B many times. Each time, it is better than the last. Now it is like coming home each time I visit. Great place to come to when you first arrive. Make plans from there-Laurie can take care of all your needs. I would recommend nowhere else for your first day in and last day out.... More

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
