I'am not perfect, but I'm always myself!!!
Waay cheaper to send it via Correos than from SJPdP.
There is a Correos Office in Burguette but closed on Saturdays. No post office in Zubiri.
The next one is in Huerte (if you take the river way before Pamplona) or in Villava (the suburb of Pamplona). And then of course Pamplona. Maybe use Express Bouricot just to send it to Pamplona and from there to Ivar by Correos?

LaPoste/French Post Office in Saint Jean Pied de Port at 1 rue de la Poste is closed on Saturday afternoons.

However for sending your letter early on Monday in Spain there is a Correos/Post Office in Burguete

Calle San Nicolás, 30,
31640 Burguete, Navarra, Spain
+34 902 19 71 97

Tap this map link below to see exact location and open hours.


Good luck and Buen camino!

SJPdP to Santiago de Compestela in May(2016)
I posted ahead a heavy, thick canvas bag that protected my backpack as it was going in the hold of the airplane. It was four days after leaving SJPdP that I found a post office that would take a parcel in Gares/Puente La Reina. I had to hang around for the post office to open but at least I was first in the queue. At the other end in Santiago you need to know where to find Ivar, it isn't the easiest place to find! However, once I did find his office (and when it was open) it was an easy job to find my parcel.
