Historic Banana Route Railway Journey
The Atlantic Railroad, described by one engineer as "the most difficult damned piece of railroading in the world," is considered the Panama Canal of Costa Rica. In 1890, the line was finally completed, forever changing the landscape, the economy, and the local way of life. As you travel, you'll enjoy insightful commentary on the indigenous flora and fauna and the history of the banana industry. Although this tour does not visit a banana plantation, explanation of the banana growing and processing is provided during the train ride.

What you will see along the way:
All aboard! Your quaint, open-air railway car journey includes stunning scenery and an opportunity to see such wildlife as black monkeys chattering in the forest, two-toed sloths resting peacefully in the trees, and colorful birds flitting through the dense vegetation. Your day includes a picturesque motorcoach drive through the lush countryside, passing rural towns and villages that provide a glimpse into the diverse and colorful lives of the locals. (Wildlife sightings are not guaranteed.)

Special Notes:
