Soon the sound of the train will be heard in Cartago, as the INCOFER – Costa Rica’s railway – nears completion of a line that has been inactive for the last 13 years. Construction is almost complete, only 100 metres (a block) is left to go.

For ¢580 colones (one way), passengers can ride the train from the downtown San José and Cartago in only 40 minutes, enjoying the beautiful landscape while avoiding the traffic congestion if taking the bus or vehicle.

In addition to commuters using the train to get to and from work, the INCOFER says the train will also be open to family outings on weekends.

It is expected that the wheels of the train will start rolling next month, and INCOFER estimates are that more than 6.000 people wil use the service daily.
