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!

Very light, comfortable and compressible poncho. Specially designed for protection against water for any activity.

Our Atmospheric H30 poncho offers lightness and waterproofness. Easily compressible and made with our Waterproof fabric, its heat-sealed interior seams guarantee its waterproofness. Includes carrying bag.

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 :)
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.

and as for sleeping in "the nature" I automatically think this means sleeping with nary a stitch of clothing to preserve one's modesty! could be problems :)

Hi all, this will be our last night on the trail and we would like to stay somewhere with a good atmosphere and perhaps a shared dinner. Any recommendations? Thanks all!!
I am a senior from Australia with health issues currently at O Poboa and travelling NORTH looking for suggestions of good cheap accomodation on the Coastal Route with single room availability...
