I wouldn't park in StJdP at present. One of the 900 Pilgrims held there may use it in an escape attempt. However, should you decide that you want to take the risk this link may assist.
Tincatinker, hilarious! Great tie in to a current thread.
Stumpen, there are several 2 and 3 star hotel in SJPdP, I would start by asking them about car storage. Most of the parking in town is in open lots, some spaces are metered. I don't remember ever seeing a private lot there. The Pilgrim Office might also have answers because many of the volunteers who come to work there probably drove there and have long term parking needs.
