The Camino needs pilgrims.
Scare stories of a crowded Camino Frances are not helpfull. For a few days at the end of May and end of August there is pressure on accomodation for a few days after St Jean but after that it is fine. I walk every year and have never had to sleep out and only a very few times have I had to walk on further than I intended.
I am currently in Ventosa and there have been no problems with accomodation even though it is what I consider the best time of the year for walking.
Speaking with albergue owners they tell me numbers are still down on pre covid.
The Camino will survive but my concern is for the small businesses that will not.
How I have already missed Eduardo’s caravan before Los Arcos and my naranca zuma in the cafe by the lake after Logrono.
