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...

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.

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...

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...

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.
