Don't worry about crowds on the Mozárabe

#1
No, this is not a joke. I was a bit concerned yesterday when I saw some postings about the numbers of beds in albergues from Almería to Granada. We are a bunch of 6 forum members meeting up in Almería in April. So I wrote to both @alansykes and the amigos and got reassurances from both of them. Specifically, let me translate (rough translation) the response from Mercedes at the Almería association:

Laurie, don't worry. There is space for everyone; although our albergues are small there won't be a problem. We have had groups of as many as 10 walking. Our albergues are small (12 beds) but no pilgrim will ever go without a bed because in the towns there are also private options. When a lot of pilgrims coincide on this route, we get organized. Even if there were a huge number (imagine 40 pilgrims) we have spaces in places where we have agreements with the town halls so that no pilgrim goes without a bed. So don't worry about it. It is very important, and you should post it in the forum to inform all pilgrims walking from Almería to please contact us (the Almería association), either by facebook, or email. Tell us when you you will arrive in Almería and when you will begin the Camino. This will help ua to know how many pilgrims are walking and if it looks like there will be a space crunch, we can solve it ahead of time.

This camino is NOT "massified" and in the years that we have been active in this organization, only one day have there been 15 pilgrims at the same time in the same town.

So, come one, come all, we will be delighted to receive you!

A big hug, Mercedes


SO -- if you are going to walk the Mozárabe from Almería, it is a good idea to contact the association at this email address. almeriajacobea@gmail.com

Buen camino, Laurie

Hi, Veronica,
So happy to see you here on the forum! It would be fun to meet you in April if you are in town when our little groups meets up in Almería.

As I walked the Mozarabe in April 2016, I can confirm that Mercedes and other members of the Almeria Amigos are wonderful. Mercedes had brought my credencial to my hotel in Almeria and in a long phone call told me everything I needed to know (in English). They have a WhatsApp group in which they inform each other on the progress of pilgrims so you will never arrive unexpected. Between Almeria and Granada I did not meet any other walkers, and between Granada and Merida about 10 people, two of them cyclists. So this is not a walk for people who expect crowds like on the Camino Frances.
