Has anyone forwarded a package from St. Jean to Santiago using the Poste Restante? If so, can you give me an estimate of the cost?

Posting from St Jean

Hi there,
I don't thik you can do a post restante from France to Spain. You might find that the first Post Office (Correos) where you could do this would be in Villava or Burlada between Larrasoana and Pamplona.
Most Post Offices are open from 8h30 – 20h30 on working days and 09h30 – 14h00 on Saturdays. Parcels sent ahead take 3 – 5 working days.
The costs are: (You pay for the box and for the postage)
Small box 230 x 140 x 80 mm €1.50:
Medium box 317 x 215 x 125 mm €1.90
Large box 390 x 280 x 190 mm €2.40:
Extra large* box 590 x 390 x 390 mm €3.00
Trapezoid box €2.40:
Adjustable box €1.65
Up to 2kg €5.29:
5kg €6.15:
10kg €7.25:
15kg €10.08:
20kg €12.30

Hope this helps.

Post ahead

If you want to walk from St Jean but have luggage to send ahead to Santiago, there are people who will carry your baggage for you between stages. Perhaps you could post your stuff in Pamplona?
Try Caroline at Express Burricot 06-61-96-04-76 or book ahead: Email: apcaroline@hotmail.com : She will carry your excess (as far as Logrono)
