    Still planning my 2009 caminoes and thought that getting a train from Madrid to Merida would be easy but there appears to be only one late afternoon train. My proposed flight gets in to madrid in the morning so I would prefer to head to merida that morning. I tried google for buses but didn't have much luck-any ideas?....please.

    Kevin, you need the Spanish blue line - Autores - http://www.avanzabus.com/web/ You can click on the Union Jack for English
    A return ticket cost from 35 € to 44 €, depending on if the bus is direct or not. There are about 8-9 services along the day, some of them being night buses. The journey takes 4 hours.

    Thanks Sil-I knew you'd come through (don't know why they call you silly!)

    I just went to that web site-it's one I found under google but assumed they didn't go to Merida because when I put my date in -14/5/09 it came back nothing found.I just put in a date a week ahead and came up with results so I guess I will have to wait till nearer may. At least I know where to look now-thanks again!
