This lovely railway station is the starting point for the amazing Nariz del Diablo train excursion, which descends 500 m in 12 km via a series of switchbacks. The station itself has a nice handicrafts market.

Bought tickets online ahead of arriving to town. Train to Nariz Del Diablo departs from Station. Train is four cars. The station has a cafe, souvenir shops and a bit of railroad history. It’s very clean and safe.

Although the train looks nice, everything is clean and the town is very cute, this train is not your money's worth. Scenery is nice but more or less the same with a bus. Very touristic stopover with so called "local activities" like dancing show and...More
