¿Cómo vas a hacer el Camino?

You want to do the Camino. But before you go, you need to make a few decisions. The first one:

¿Cómo vas a hacer el Camino?


How are you going to do the Camino?

Before we go on, let me remind you what I said last week about travel vocabulary guides: I don’t like them because they don’t tell how to pronounce the words. I don’t want to be like them, so keep reading till the end of this post if you want to learn how to pronounce the words I’m giving you next.

Going back to the question ¿Cómo vas a hacer el Camino? Most people do it a pie (on foot, walking). But you can also do it en bici (cycling) or a caballo (on horseback).

I’m sure you already know that if you want to get the compostela (certificate saying you have done it) you need to get a credencial before you start. Credencial is like a Camino passport; you need to get sellos (stamps) on it along the way, as proof that you have covered the required distance.

  • If you decide to do the Camino a pie you need to walk at least the last 100km to get your compostela, same distance as if you are doing it a caballo.


  • If you are doing it en bici, you need to cycle at least 200km.

Have you decided already? You can write a comment answering the question: ¿Cómo vas a hacer el Camino?

You could write: Voy a hacer el Camino… (I’m going to do the Camino…) and then complete with:

  • a pie/andando/caminando
  • en bici
  • a caballo


A pie 

En bici 

A caballo

    1. Hi! Is it any word in particular that you are having problem with? Is it just in this post or in all of them? I just checked and all the audios seem to be working fine, so I’m not sure what the problem is. If you give me some more details I will try and investigate. Thanks!
