Cariari B&B is a wonderful oasis next to a little river from where you can easily reach the volcanoes and other little gems Laurie will guide you to. She is immensely helpful and patient helping you make your stay the nicest possible and make your plans come alive. Breakfast is gorgeous and Miriam's banana bread is second to none. We'd... More

We were recommended Laurie's place by friends & how right they were. It's such a comfortable place to start recovering from jet lag/lack of sleep. The terrace is a wonderful place just to sit and be .The breakfasts were excellent, with such variety.Her staff are so kind. The offer of wine on arrival was just what we needed!!

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
