The old train station to the Atlantic, the Estación del Ferrocarril de Costa Rica , was built in 1908. Though the building is closed (it most recently housed a children’s museum), it’s nonetheless a remarkable example of tropical architecture (and a good photo op), with swirling art nouveau-inspired beams and elaborate stonework all along the roofline.
