I found Cariari B&B online as a stop to the city from my trips to go see friends and family. I continue to be impressed by the overall experience, from the hospitality to the quality of food to the overall attentiveness to detail. Laurie and Miriam are wholeheartedly dedicated to making their guests feel comfortable, like a family member. Breakfast are satisfying and delicious from eggs, fruit, tea/coffee and breads. Laurie is a great knowledgeable resource for any plans you might have and can arrange for transportation too. I prefer to stay here over other options in the area because it is more of a home feel. And pets are welcomed too :)!

Our travel agent recommended we have a "soft landing" in CR, before we headed to the Nicoyan Penninsula.... and it couldn't have been a better tip. Cariari B&B, Laurie Blizzard, and her side kick Miriam were so lovely accommodating, personable and could anticipate our needs ❤️. Laurie is a most intriguing, funny, and lovely character!! Being from Massachusetts in the US, was a great tie to Laurie....I felt right at home. She knows San Jose so well after moving here 20 yrs ago. Feel in love with the country and people.... how can't you!! Beds are comfy!! Breakfasts are filling and fresh!!!!

$5 Uber to downtown a great advantage. 20 minutes from the airport. Shuttle picked us up and we were welcomed by proprietor Laurie. Miriam is the house "maid" and helped with our bags, making coffee waiting for us outside our door each morning, and the best breakfasts to get us on our way sight seeing. Rooms clean and safe. Running river behind the property was romantic. It's the only place I would stay when visiting CR. Thank you Laurie and Miriam!!

Instead of staying in a hotel, make your stay in San Jose (Cariari) an experience you'll treasure. Yes, I mean that! Staying with hostess Laurie is a true treat. The large beautiful house has a handful of rooms and there is a large rooftop patio.

Nothing was too much trouble for Laurie - she made us feel so welcome for our first night in Costa Rica, a home from home. Our room was very comfortable, and Laurie gave us a lift to a local restaurant and a bank to exchange currency. She then let us leave our suitcases for several days while we took a trip to the Osa peninsula.

This property is a delightful haven away from city bustle, yet reasonably close by taxi to both the airport and the main Tracopa bus station. The layout is very welcoming and calming, as are Laurie and her staff, and I love the vast terrace. I was also pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the climate of San Jose is. The cooked breakfast was a leisurely treat. Highly recommended.

My family and I do not travel outside of USA often. Laurie helped ease my mind by assisting in the planning of our couple days in San Jose. She set up shuttles, tours and meals for us. Laurie and Miriam are amazing. Their hospitality is the best I have ever experienced. Thank you Laurie and Miriam for everything you did, we are so happy to have stayed with you. We feel blessed to have met you both!
