Hi,

Based in Borgus for 2 nights to rest a crook back and left hip before re-commencing the Camino. Whilst there, I noted that I need warmer clothing for the remaining stages which are higher up. I’ve been informed there is a Decathlon store at the Hipercor out of town a bit and can be reached by a “free bus” (really??) from the theatre (Teatro Principal) to the Hipercor every 30 mins.

If that is correct, is there a certain bus number I need to be aware of? Don’t want to end up going on the wrong bus. Was at the theatre location today and I couldn’t find any such information (Spanish or English) on that bus service or even on their web page. Is it the bus stop directly in front (entrance) of Teatro Principal by the El Cid monument OR off the side street.

Lastly, how long is the trip to the Hipercor and where to get off...wouldn’t want to miss it and end up miles away! Is the free service BOTH directions?

I went there. I feel like I may have taken a taxi and then took a bus back. Unless I'm confusing cities, the bus took off from just outside the MacDonalds which is just across the parking lot.

I've taken that bus a couple of times. I believe that you it is marked Hipercor or El Corte Inglés, and yes, it's free in both directions.

That is correct. The bus leaving the shopping center picks you up by the McDonalds. In fact that is where it drops you off too.

There was a free bus? I ended up walking both ways. It’s not the most pleasant route.

I plan on walking the Camino April 2018.
I need some silicone ear plugs, would they sell them or perhaps a pharmacy?

Hi, there is Hypercor on the bus. It's free. I took it to go Decathlon.
