- Past OR future Camino
I'm so excited, just got tickets to Porto today and heading off to my Camino first time, in solitude, in May! Merry Christmas to everyone!!!!
How exciting for you. I also am starting my Camino Portugués from Porto in May. I’ve been waiting for 2 years. Can’t wait.
So excited for you, it will enlighten your life, I will never forget my popping my Camino cherry! I'm also looking forward to doing that route in May, maybe see you there (I'll be the one going in the wrong direction!)
See you there Camina!

Thank you Hopefully in May on Costal will be perfect. You too Buen Camino in future!Hi Cathy
The Camino da Costa was my fourth time on the Camino and my third complete one. it was also my wettest, I walked it in April having previously walked in June, July, September and October. The storms that come in off the Atlantic can be "biblical" but when the sun shines it is a gorgeous route. I am sure you will love it.
I did it from Lisbon to Port then to Santiago 4 years ago, also in May. It got very hot on the way to Porto, then slightly better after Porto. The Camino da Costa portion was very nice, closer to the beach and cooler. Enjoy
Well done you! It’s months to go and I’m planning already from socks to silencing earbuds Buen Camino!So happy for you!! Isn't this all so exciting? I was originally going to walk Frances for my first, but I think it's going to be very busy - so I'm considering Portugal instead. Plan to begin April 22.
I'm planning to start from Lisbon on April 20th - hope that there's no "biblical" rains then., I walked it in April having previously walked in June, July, September and October. The storms that come in off the Atlantic can be "biblical" but when the sun shines it is a gorgeous route
Or too much heat!I did it from Lisbon to Port then to Santiago 4 years ago, also in May. It got very hot on the way to Porto,
Buen Camino @Cathy78

Bom Caminho, Cathy! We're moving to Porto in 30 days (!!!!) and plan to do the Caminho Portugues in October. We did the Camino Frances in 2012 and have been dreaming of another wonderful Camino for 10 years. Ultreia!
Thank you, wow congratulations Bom Caminho and have a happy life in Porto!
Thank you, absolutely a lovely video and amazing viewsHaving been fortunate to pedal along the Portuguese coast myself, I can’t say enough about the amazing and beautiful March 2019 video Efrén González published in November 2021 on youtube : Hiking 280 km along the Costa Verde | Porto to Santiago. A great preview for Kathy, Kurt, Leamac and other future pilgrims.
Thank you for the suggestions! I’ll land in Porto airport and planning to get metro to get closer to the center of city and stay first night in Porto So I’ll be ready to walk next dayCathy78,
My wife and I are also going to try and do the coastal route in May. It'll be my 5th and her 2nd. Maybe we'll see you along the Way. Just a suggestion if you're wanting to get to walking. Since Porto airport is so far to the North and most planes from Madrid (if you're going that way) will be landing at around noon or 1pm, it's easy to strap the backpack on at the airport and start walking. You can find the camino within a couple of blocks. Then the split (interior/coastal) happens rather quickly thereafter. We're planning on just walking and make it to the albergue in LaBruge around 3pm or so. Good luck peregrina!
This site is good for checking average temperatures for different locationsDoes anyone know what the weather might be like on the Camino Portuguese Central in May?
Thanks, but I start on May, do we have a different thread in forum in May? I’m still kinda clumsy navigator here
Here you goThanks, but I start on May, do we have a different thread in forum in May? I’m still kinda clumsy navigator here
Enjoy your Camino!As far as all will sort out, I'll start on April, 1st. No joke.
I only get vacation on easter-break. Flights not booked yet, prizes and departing airport not fixed (can choose from different options for that day).
I will walk the CP da Costa and try to reach Finisterre.
It's my second Camino after the CF in 2019.
Hope you enjoy your Camino!
