Overview
More
A fun Tourist Train in Los Alcazares. 'El Habanero' runs around the town every 45 mins, every night in the summer starting at 7.00 p.m. Please see the clocks for the next train. Tickets are return so whether you just wish to see around this lovely Spanish town while waving to all, or to hop off for a meal in the old town and get a lift back, the price is the same. We are now closed for Autumn, hope to see you next May. Regards The train crew.

Thank you everyone for answering questions on El Habanero Tren Turistico. As we are out going around in circles every evening it means we dont get to reply to questions as quickly as we would wish.
