We walked the Ruta del Cantabrico in 2019. Wonderful. The Ruta Del Mar follows it in some places but is not (or wasn’t then) marked. The Ruta del Cantabrico itself is very well marked.

We found the way-marking was patchy, depending on whether there were active camino groups/friends in the area. We had copied the route onto a Mapa Militar for each section and used that when in doubt.
Much easier now with @Dave 's guide book.
As the Camino is now official the way-marking might have become more consistent.

The good news is that locals have been working hard recently to improve waymarking, so it's better now than it was before. That's a very low bar, though! Until I've seen it with my own eyes, I wouldn't advise anyone to walk the Mar without access to gpx tracks, at least as a safety net.

Our tracks are available for free download here (free Cicerone account required). Each track includes both the "official" Mar approach and the coastal alternatives, where relevant. You can find others on wikiloc and elsewhere.
