Trains, Planes and Automobiles
Costa Rica government officials are expection almost 100,000 people a month to ride the new train, San Jose’ to Heredia. If all goes according to plan, there will be 42 trips a day for the 6 mile route.
To avoid the horrible traffic jams between LaUruca and Heredia Centro, TAKE THE TRAIN! If you have ever been on these roads you can fully appreciate the idea of finding another way to get to where you are going than sitting in the traffic that is SOOOOO bad in his area.
The one-way fare is supposed to be 350 colones or about .62 cents. Do not try to give the conductor US money though. They will only accept colones.
The train will make two stops along the route, includint one at Cinco Esquinas in Tibas.
