I tried in 09, it went horribly. Gonna try again. Aug/Sept this year
Can anyone tell me about swimsuits please? I know at least one Refugio has a pool... can we just swim in our shorts and shirts?

I saw a couple of young ladies swimming in suits at one pool.
I also saw a couple go in their shorts and tee-shirts.
I think it's probably up to you whether or not you want to carry a suit for one swim?

I took one and it turned out to be great for walking in the rain. I wore a pair of nylon wind pants over it and both dried in no time once the rain stopped.

I have my bikini with me on my camino and I also use it as a night wear under a T- shirt. So better to take one...

Howdy!! Thanks everyone for taking the time to give me a heads up... it's truly appreciated. I planned on taking my top piece with shorts but wondered if I'd need the whole thing. It would be good for walkin' in the rain...great idea. Actually I've found I LOVE to walk in the rain...and you usually have the place to yourself.

I also just realized that this post would be better suited (no pun intended :)) for the clothing section... Sorry.


Happy Trails.....

Hi Karla,

Even though I used my togs only once, at Calzadilla de la Cueza, I'm glad I had them, and will take them again this year.

Edit.......don't go expecting an olympic sized pool :lol:

There is a small pool in Belorado, too.

Red Albergue members with pools:

Puenta La Reina - Santiago Apostol
Puenta La Reina - Jakue
Lorca - La Bodega del Camino
Boadilla del Camino - En El Camino
Calzadilla de la Cueza - Camino Real
Terradillos de los Templarios - Jacques de Molay

The odds of a pool at a municipal or church albergue are very small.

Many, various, and continuing.
My favorite swimming place along the camino is in the Rio Porma, beneath the bridge into Puente de Villarente. A great break on that long slog between Mansilla and Leon... if you survive the bridge crossing, double back beneath and there´s a wonderful swimming hole!
