Overview

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.

Great way to see the back roads. Random stops you can get on and off throughout the evening. Worth a go. Recommend you do it as its getting dark as you get a better feel on the area.

Thank you for your review. We think the back roads of Los Alcazares are still interesting even after going around them for 9 years. However it is the friendly residents and visitors that make it a 'Great little tourist trip'. Thanks again. The Train Crew.
