Travel Trains - (no planes or automobiles) - Part II
Lens: DA* 16-50 Camera: K20D Photo Location: Costa Rica 
Posted By: daacon, 03-09-2011, 02:00 PM

Here some of the views from the Train ride. That is Arenal Lake it is failry long about 20km. Small mountains but man or man again everthing so green ! You can see the Arenal Volcano from here but if you notice the low ceiling the peak aluded us for the 3 days we were in the area oh well something to see next time





And yes we even went over some bridges. The guy that set this up must have spent a lot of time it was a pretty cool ride up and down. I thibk the cost was $10.00 round trip ... not real cheap by Costa Rica standards but well worth it as tourists.





Along with bridges we have tunnels as well - very well constructed ride



We arrive at our destiation , the revolving resturant - yes the top rotates and it took about 40 minutes to go 360 degrees. The food was pretty good - nothing to really write home but very edible.



A pano view from the top - hand held so excuse the quality.



And that's the end of that

We did Bob I just thought it was rather expesive perhaps we got the gringo rate (I hope the locals paid less). I mean the wages are not very high there so $10.00 for a lot of people is like half a days pay. It was $10.00 well spent for us though.
