Does anyone know what company to use for a bag delivery on the Camino Portuguese (from Porto)? Also is everyone winging the accommodations at this time? Or should I make reservations for an accommodations? I’m going in May! Thanks!

It's very quiet just now. In Porto there's a complete absence of pilgrims and tourists. Yesterday, a fine day, I found many places closed and vacant and met just one pilgrim en route as I took a walk 30km up the coast to Vila do Conde. There I spoke with the hospitalera at Santa Clara (it has been closed for almost 2 years) and she told me with sadness, she doesn't think it will open again. A shame, I have nice memories of staying there. She told me of limited options further up the coast.

Of course it's mid January and none of this may be relevant in May, I hope not, but I would at least check on accomodation options ahead..

That’s so sad to hear but hopefully by May ñ, things could turn around. This is one of the reasons I want to reserve at least a few days of accommodations to ensure I get a place to stay. It’s also my first Camino

Have a fabulous trip bootscobler. My sis and I started our Portuguese at the end of May 2017 from Porto and it was incredible. Beautiful.

It may open more in May. We walked from Porto last October and had no difficulty finding a bed at the end of the day.

I am leaving Porto on may 7. I will be doing the coastal route then crossing over to the central route at Vila do Conde. Because of current covid conditions I have booked all my stays thru Booking. Com and Airb&b and I am currently seeking baggage transfer also. I got an email by Tui trans saying they will not intermix Routes (Coastal & Central) and will not pick up at air Airb&b. I am working on other transportation as we speak to find the easiest way to transport. Where theres a will theres a way! 🤞

I don't mean to paint a bleak picture for you, I'm sure it will improve in Spring, but I just wouldn't rely on or judge it by previous years.

Hello Boots!
I am contemplating between Camino Portuguese Central and Camino Del Norte( much tougher much longer) with the latter possibly more organised after Easter ( 4th week April 2022).
Very Best!

We did the exact route and Caminofacil moved our luggage. Not sure about Airbnb though, they like to have someone there who will accept your bag.

Yeah from Porto Many Possibilities..
It’s the 640-240 = 400 km
From Lisbon to Porto where there is nothing organised such as Correos..
For people with genuine physical problems that stretch is a definite disadvantage.. someone mentioned Euro 1.00 / km
meaning Euro 400:- minimum… i believe it’s much more.
Very Best

Something to consider is to make sure your accommodations accept transported bags. When I stayed in the albergue in Rates, there was a fellow who arrived looking for his backpack which had been rerouted to a nearby shop because they don't accept shipped bags (and seemed reluctant to accept pilgrims who ship bags).
