Sleeping in hamaka

Camino Portuguese / the Coastal Way (Planned)
Hello travellers,

I got myself a hamaka and thinking to sleep in the nature. Either in a camp or just in a forest.

Anyone has any experience with it? Is it ok to sleep in a forest (Portugal/Spain)?
I am going in September and will have the celt as well, so even if it rains, I shall be ok.
I was thinking to mix it with staying in auberges, where I could admire the bed and electricity to charge my devices. But then the connection with the nature is tempting.

Planning the Coastal way.
Thank you for any suggestions, ideas.

Buen camino!

Catalina Camino Oct 29 to Nov 4
Hike the 80km Catalina Camino Oct 29 to Nov 4 on California’s Santa Catalina Island
Finding two perfectly spaced trees one the Coastal way might be hard.
I know, there are no palmas like in Caribbean coast, which would be the dream to put hamaka between. But Coastal way is also not the whole time by the coast, plenty of forests on the way. So am hoping :)
