Is there a train station in playa blanca?

I'm staying at the dream gran Castillo resort next week and was wondering what the nearest train station is as I would like to venture out abit more to other towns

I'm afraid no trains, the local no 30 bus which runs from one end of the resort to the other. Also the 161 bus out to Puerto del Carmen. Tour companies do trips out and probably your best option unless you hire a car

Not just no trains in PB. No trains on the island.

No trains on the island, it is really quite a small island, hire cars are quite cheap and the island is very easy to drive on, apart from the one way system on the strip which involves a bit of ducking and diving when heading towards Arrecife from PDC.

Thanks for your replys, neither me or my partner drive so would have to get the bus but at least we would get to see the island. Thanks delboy for the excursion list il have a look :) also what's the weather like in the evening at the moment is it warm enough to walk about in a dress and sandals?

I would recommend taking one of the excursions. Not generally my kind of thing - but we did a full day tour from Last Minute Travel (?) - it was really worthwhile. We got to sit back and look around- and the tour guide told us a lot of info that isnt in any of the guide books. Really worth doing a trip out.

But the regular bus services are pretty reliable either if you want to explore on your own.

Had to laugh when I saw this question!

Consider hiring a car for a few days, plenty to see and you cannot got lost here.

enjoy
