Hi everyone, leaving in a few days to start Camino Del Norte starting in Santander and following Daves alternative along the coast. Before I wrap up my some what route plan and put it away any tips/advise would be appreciated. I have booked the first 6 nights and after that I will go with the wind regarding accomadation and look for cheaper options. I am going to follow the coast as much as I can to Ribaeo and from there considering if to continue on the Norte or head along the Ruta Do Mar.
What I have booked so far: 1st night Santander Habitaciones en El Sardinero ( reason is its close to starting point of light house and my flight gets in late at night) 2nd night Liencres Hostal La Picota. 3rd night Santilliana Del Mar Hospedaje Octavio. 4th night Comillas Albergue La Huella. 5th night Unquera Hotel Canal. 6th night Llanes Miraolas.

If anyone has any tips etc along this route and input/advice for Ruta Do Mar. My destination is Fisterra as I want to walk from there to Muxia. I never got to do that part a few years ago due to blisters :)

One last thing "weather" and what to pack. I have been checking it out and it is still quiet warm but I wonder about heavy rain and what rain jacket to bring!

Muchas Gracias Abigail :)

I did the same hike in May2017 so I'm guessing now your gonna be facing some heat. Dress accordingly. I will suggest you give yourself some extra time at your day 3 location. It's a wonderful little town with lots of history and fun shops and places to see and the food is amazing like so much of the camino norte. buen camino

Get a good poncho that will also cover your backpack. You should be fine with that.

I did consider that idea and then put it away. Thank you for planting the seed again :)
