We have just arrived home from the Norte. These sprig to mind and are a must.
Albergue de Peregrino Guermes, Novallana train station with the best vegetarian lasagne, La Ferreria Albergue Amandi, Canero has bad reviews but we found it fantastic though we didn't share a meal and Cuerres Rest Of Andayòn, the monastery in Sobrado but no meal. Hope this helps. Buen Camino

Hi There,
My daughter and I arrive in Irun on Saturday and will start walking on Sunday, so maybe we will bump into each other. Hope to see you on the path.

We are currently in Nojas, 10 days in. Periodic rain, nothing heavy, for the past 3 days. It was warm in San Sebastian (85 F) but otherwise mostly 60s. Feeling blessed!
We are staying in private accomodations, booked ahead, so can’t comment on availability otherwise or business of albuerges.
Buen Camino!

@peregrina2000

Do you know if your coastal routes are detailed in the map.cz app? That would be an alternative to downloading your coastal maps per your thread in

I used Buen Camino. I just wish I'd found it earlier. It has all the alternatives, shows you where you are on the map, all updated accommodation, and you can plan your own stages. It also gives you information along the way of points of interest.

Yes, the coastal alternatives (as well as all other alternatives) are included on mapy.cz app. No need to download anything further (other than the map of all of Spain, if you want to use it off-line). As noted by others above, the Buen Camino and Wise Pilgrim apps. also include the alternatives on their maps.

Btw, mapy.cz is the successor to, and identical to, Windy Maps, for those who are familiar with that app.

Also, when you use mapy.cz you need to magnify down to street level in order to see the individual trails.

Andy,
Thanks for confirming the coastal routes are now in the three apps.

I am new to Buen Camino, Wise Pilgrim and mapy.cz. Does anyone stand out or that you would recommend over the other two?

mapy.cz is a general mapping app, like google maps, but unlike google maps, it also has virtually all the hiking trails in the universe on it, and I use it not just on the caminos but when I'm walking across town or through the nearby regional parks.

Buen Camino and Wise Pilgrim are specific to the caminos, so they'll have less general information on them, and less of the surrounding road / trail network, but more that's specific to the particular camino, like places to stay (though mapy.cz will have them, too).

Since mapy.cz is free, it's a no-brainer to download and try out. And since the others only cost a few dollars each (or whatever your local currency is) you're not out of pocket much if you buy both of them. One may have some features / information you like, the other may have others. I'm a Wise Pilgrim fan myself, but to be honest, I can't tell you why I've come to prefer it.

Try them all!
