Good overview of the island. Train goes around the perimeter of the island so you're mostly looking at coastal views. Narration is provided along the way as well as lots of rum! Ride is jerky and bouncy so not good for standing up ... Read More

Creaky old railroad. Not kids under 10 yo friendly. Great way to see this island, as there isn't a whole lot else to do!

Spectacular views around the island, including lush green mountains, black sand beaches, and pastel dotted villages. Train moved slowly enough for good pictures. Free drinks were served. Only downside was open-air level of train was crowded. Everyone had a place to sit, but some not in ideal locations for photographing. I was lucky and managed to get a corner, so I could get great photos at least from one side. Downstairs there is an air-conditioned area with tables and large windows. Read Less

We did the rail and sail option.
Sail Date: December 2017
We did the rail and sail option. You take the train out and return by catamaran. Some had the option returning by bus. It gives a great view of the island, narrated talking about the history of the sugar plantations.
