Waiting for the train

December 23, 2017

It’s a day when planes, trains and automobiles are setting off on holiday journeys around the world. In Costa Rica, many families get to stay put altogether or have shorter trips ahead, like the ones made by the city’s urban train, which travels through the capital and to Heredia, Alajuela and Cartago. Here, a train waits for passengers at the Atlantic station in San José.

Would you like to submit a photo to our #TTPicOfTheDay series – the view from your home or favorite Costa Rican spot, or a photo of your upcoming special event? Please send horizontal photos at least 1100 pixels wide to kstanley@ticotimes.net. We’d love to see the sights with you.
