Luggage transfer between key cities

Time of past OR future Camino
April/may 2024 Or September
Hi, hoping someone maybe able to guide me. On my Camino from SJPDP, I would like to take days off in a few of the larger cities. Is it possible, and who with, to have a small suitcase transferred on my walk just between those cities and stored until I get there? Example - transfer SJPDP to pamplona / Pamplona to Burgos / Burgos to Leon, etc - thanks for any guidance
 
3rd Edition. More content, training & pack guides avoid common mistakes, bed bugs etc
Correos - the Spanish postal service - offers a service called Paq Peregrino which allows you to forward a parcel to a post office on the route and collect it from there. 15 days of storage is included but you can add extra days if necessary. It would not cover transfers from SJPDP to Pamplona as it only works between Spanish addresses.

Ideal pocket guides for during and after your Camino. Each weighs just 40g (1.4 oz).
The only issue is that depending on when you arrive Correos may not be open. I would always double check the times of day you can retrieve your bag before sending. Correos is usually not open on Sundays for example, and many close mid-afternoon and not reopen other days. You also have to wait until they open to send it on to the next place before you can start walking. I would find that a big hassle.

Most of us just wear our pilgrim clothes. I have one walking set of clothes and a dress I wear in the afternoon and evening while my clothes are drying after laundering.
 
Transport luggage-passengers.
From airports to SJPP
Luggage from SJPP to Roncevalles
I remember on one of my early walks some young peregrinas dressed to the nines wearing heels in Zubiri. That was a very odd sight to behold.

I use a backpack with Camino gear and a suitcase with vacation attire. The suitcase gets shipped to Santiago. Pilgrim until I reach Santiago. Tourist for the remaining days.

I do the same. I think that it would be too much of a hassle to take the suitcase to the post office and pick it up several times during my Camino.
