It was a very warm welcome by Miriam. She immediately offered coffee or something like that. Her banana bread is the best. She also showed us the room which is very nice.

What an incredible experience we had at Laurie's bed & breakfast. Laurie was so helpful and knowledgeable about everything! and helped us to customize our time in Costa Rica. She had great suggestions on where to go, what to do, and places to eat and we enjoyed all of it!!! She definitely made our trip memorable. She is a very gracious and welcoming host. She and Miriam made us the most delicious breakfasts daily, I especially loved the pineapple pancakes, as well as a yummy snack when we arrived! They were truly there to take care of our every need and it was much appreciated! Miriam is an angel and the sweetest lady ever! Such a great experience! Cant wait to go back and see more of Costa Rica and see Laurie & Miriam again!

Laurie was very kind and welcoming and made sure to give instructions in advance how to get here from the airport. The room was clean and had everything we needed with access to a lovely balcony. Miriam is a wonderful cook and made an excellent breakfast the next morning. A menagerie of friendly pets also welcomed us.

We only stayed one night at the Cariari b&b before flying back to United States, we had a great fun time there. Laurie, the lady that manages this place is remarkable, she can help you with any questions you have about the area, the food and activities and about Costa Rica in general. Miriam is Laurie’s sidekick is also very helpful. The b&b location is perfect, close to a plaza with several restaurants, and also very convenient to the airport and rental car places. The happy hour with beer and wine and snacks was a nice surprise and the breakfast was very very tasty and filling. If you are looking for a place in San Jose that is also in a close proximity to the airport, do not hesitate and book Cariari Bed and Breakfast.

Hospitality and Charm!
Our family of five had an absolutely wonderful stay here - The hospitality was above and beyond and the property is beautiful. Laurie and Miriam are wonderful hosts. Miriam made the worlds best pineapple pancakes for breakfast and we had such lovely conversation with the hosts. My three kids loved their sweet dogs and parrot. Thank you for the incredible hospitality!

The perfect end to my trip
What a gem! Laurie was an incredible hostess for my very short stay. I was traveling as a solo female and she even insisted on going out to dinner with me as I arrived late and wasn’t familiar with the area. If you’re an animal lover you will enjoy her sweet pups and kitty. I would absolutely recommend a stay here to anyone, it really feels like a home away from home. I was sent off for my very early flight in the morning with some fresh coffee and the most amazing banana bread packed up to go for me by Miriam. Stay here, you won’t regret it!
