    Reservations for SJPdP?

    I am starting my camino in May, but unsure of exactly what day I will arrive in SJPdP. How hard is it to find lodging with just 1 day's notice? I see lots of posts about people making reservations for their first night.

    Reserving beds for the first few nights

    How is this done please? I don't want to have to pay international bank charges for such small sums as the charges will be more than the cost of the night's stay. I want to book the initial stay in SJPD then the next 2 nights, after that I'll take what I can get until I'm close to the finishing...

I see others had mentioned making reservations in...
