Clarita is a friendly, if somewhat chaotic place. However, at 60 dollars for a non-air conditioned room with paperthin walls, without breakfast (80 for a small room with AC) it is way overpriced. Most guests seem to be regulars who start hitting the bottle at midmorning and go on till after midnight, but otherwise peaceful, not brawls at least when I was there. If this is what you come for, OK. If you go to Jaco at all, it very likely is, the only other thing to go there for is the Carara National Park which is good and for which Jaco is a good staging point.
