Although it was unadvertised, we were presented with a tasty three course meal at dinner time.(contributions welcome). Cable t.v. worked well. Owner, Laurie, could not possibly...

I came to Costa Rica for a work-related trip and decided to stay past after my work obligations ended. Cariari B&B has amazing rooms that are well-decorated, clean, well-kept, and comfortable. It also has a top floor lounge and balcony area with a beautiful view. The breakfast options are vast, and the morning spread is as beautiful as it is...

My husband and I stayed at Cariairi Bed and Breakfast in San Jose. The room was spacious, clean, comfortable, and very reasonably priced. Laurie was a great host and makes an amazing breakfast! One of the best I've had! It's not far from the airport and easy to get around town for very reasonable rates by taxi.

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!!
