Norte + Lebaniego: sending a box ahead... to where/how?

I know about Ivar services, and also about companies that transport all sorts of stuff to Santiago.
However, my next camino is probably going to start in Irun and end in Santo Toribio de Liebana (the end of Camino Lebaniego), as for personal reasons my husband and I really want to visit the place with the Lignum Crucis, even if we can only see it from the distance, through a glass.

So, what would be the best option to send a little suitcase ahead and have it waiting for us somewhere near Santo Toribio? I could not find this kind of service in Cantabria. Would it work if I sent it from Irun with the Correos to collect in a postal agency in Potes, the last city on the route? Has anyone done that before?

Please forgive me if this should be in the Vadiniense/Lebaniego forum, but as most of the walk will be Norte, I posted it here!

Correos will get your parcel to Potes. They're getting pretty good at managing Peregrino's stuff even off-piste. Any hotel/ hostal in Potes will be happy to receive your stuff if you're pre-booked.
