For our first trip to Costa Rica, we were looking for a place in a safe part of San Jose where we felt comfortable. Cariari fit that bill and the owner was very nice and helpful. The B&B was lovely w/ a nice deck on which you could relax. We had a very large King room w/ a comfortable bed. The included breakfast was also very good.
However, despite it's location in what appeared to be a quiet neighborhood, the street was actually quite noise and there were multiple barking dogs at early hours. Also, the rooms are quite pricey for Costa Rica. As we were just using it as an airport stopover, we could not take much advantage of the place, ie, deck or large room. There were others there who were using it as a home base, and if you have the funds, that is a reasonable option.
Our only real gripe is that there was a mix up on the rooms that was the owner's fault, but she charged us for the higher rate and then was so bold as to ask if we had tipped her cook and house guy - who didn't even carry my heavy bags up the stairs.
PS. Costa Rica maps and town names are very confusing. It is not in the Heredia that you see on the map, it's right next to the airport.
