Admittedly Cariari may not be for everyone but we loved it! We were warmly welcomed by Laurie, with whom I had been emailing prior to our visit as she had organised all our minibus transfers for us (great value and easy), offering us a drink and an invitation to a belated 4th July party at a friends of hers! The room was homely and comfortable, and Laurie's house is in a quiet residential area ideally situated between the two San Jose airports with a mall with some food outlets at the end of the road. We only stayed one night and left early in the morning but the night is one of our holiday highlights and unforgettable. The banana bread we took with us for breakfast was delicious. Definitely recommended.
