    Bus to Madrid between Astorga&Ponferrada

    Hi, Is it possible to catch a bus to Madrid somewhere between Astorga & Ponferrada? We are starting in Leon and not sure if we can reach Ponferrada in 5 days since Leon and Astorga offer a lot of sightseeing. How reliable are buses there? Somebody told us that their schedule is pretty relaxed...

    Alsa buses at Madrid airport

    I am flying into Madrid on Aug 31 and have purchased a bus ticket to Pamplona. Can anyone tell me how I would get to the bus station at the airport when I land? I think it is located in the airport at Terminal 4, but can I walk there or do I need to take a tram or shuttle from the main airport...

    Santander airport to Astorga, possible stopover?

    Hi Travellers! I'll be flying into Santander in 2 weeks but my flight does not land until 4pm... I'm starting my Camino from Astorga but according to the ALSA website the best I will do that day is get to Leon by bus at 10pm, so my question is this: would I be best to spend a night in Santander...

    What is the "preference NUMEROUS" price for Monbus?

    I'm looking at tickets for bussing from Fisterra to SdC (in order to get to the SdC airport) and there's two prices, one is full price and the other is heavily discounted but for preference NUMEROUS. It'd be great to pay less for the ticket, but not if I find out once I get to the bus that I...

    Arriving and Departing the Primitivo for 100km

    Hi All, I just caused myself to panic because I forgot which bus line schedule to look at. We are flying Boston-Madrid-A Coruna, then taking the Arriva, not Alsa, bus to Lugo to begin. The Arriva bus takes about an hour and costs 11 euro. The Alsa bus goes to Oviedo, then back to Lugo, in 6.5...

    England to Sarria to Santiago de Compostela and back to England

    I flew out of Stansted with Ryan Air for Santiago de Compostela - 34 English pounds (about 45 Euros). The easiest way to get to Sarria, I thought, was by train (very cheap about 15 Euro I think). There is a bus, from the airport to the bus station that then goes onto the train station. So very...

    Getting to Madrid from a village.

    I walked as far as Nararrex last Spring but had health difficulties and could not continue. Turns out I needed open heart surgery. This spring I will continue but not sure how far I will get in the amount of time I have. I will be walking from Navarrex to somewhere past Burgos this year and...

    bus from Casar de Caceres

    Obviously there is a fancy-schmancy bus station in this wee town/village/hamlet. However, I cannot find any information about buses leaving from there - all the info I have suggests the bus leaves from Caceres! If that is the case, is it worth walking to Casar de Caceres or should we just skip...
