Hi All,

Getting ready to go in September, but trying to figure expenses. Can anyone tell me if it's possible to do the Ingles from either Ferrol or A Coruna for $550 (US) or less? Or am I dreaming? Thanks in advance for light you can shed.
Nancy :D

Hola Nancy

You'll be able to complete the Camino Ingles for considerably less than 500 dollars. Have a look at the guide: http://www.csj.org.uk/guides-online.htm

As you will see you can walk this route and use albergues at Nedas, Mino and Bruma - but this is quite an arduous way to do it. But if you do they cost 3 euors per night for a bed. In A Coruna and Ferrol you should find a room in a decent hostal for 25 euors or so. In Pontedeume a single room may cost you 12 euros or so, Betanzos - a posting here yesterday confirmed a room at 15 euros, Bruma - albergue or hostal at 18 euros, Sigueiro 18 euros.

Menus of the Day remain around 8 - 10 euors for three courses, bread and a glass of wine and coffee.

So if your budget is $500 you'll have enough to stay in more up market accommodation if you wish or just have money left over.

Let us know how you get on!

Buen Camino

John

Thanks, John!

It's a relief to know it can be done economically! I appreciate your prompt replay and all the great info on this website for pilgrims!

Hi,

Usually the Camino is said to be possible to be done for not much more than 1 euro per kilometer.

The Camino inglés since El Ferrol is about 116 km?

Buen Camino,
