  • Buen Camino

    By JM700
    Esta app es excelente. La acabo de usar en mi Camino Primitivo. No soy de España, así que la usé en modo de avión ya que funciona muy bien con el GPS del celular. Las recomendaciones de albergue, rutas, todo excelente. En todo momento me decía donde estaba y cual era el camino. La parte de brújula para llevarte a sitios específicos super también. Todo super, mejor app que he comprado.
  • Lacking

    By caminocamino
    The app helps with planning but the labels are super hard to read, it doesn’t help if you’re lost and lacks good details.
  • Great App

    By Begas201639
    With a lot information and fast answer to any question I have. Thank you.
  • Helpful guide and lighter then print guides

    By slarey
    So far I have used this more than the paper guide. It has been accurate and the prices are much more in line than the Brierly guide. All this and free!
  • Rutas

    By arriagavarela
    Hay un problema al momento de hacer la ruta y consultarla al día siguiente, simplemente desaparece lo diseñado y vuelve a los puntos por de foult
  • Love the plan your own stages

    By Sfbaldmama
    On the Camino and I downloaded a few apps to try and this is definitely my go-to. My favorite part is planning my own stages on the fly - figure out each night how far I want to walk, and then use the stage planner. It also works offline - so I can see photos of the church or so in the little towns which helps me identify where I am. Took me a bit to figure out to swipe to go to next town.

    I found this guide extremely helpful, especially during the off season. It was simple to find the albergue phone numbers to call ahead and be sure they were open. And the reviews and list of facilities too. Both for albergues and towns Beware that albergues are not always open when they say they will be!!! Call if in doubt:-)
  • Una guía verdadera

    By horatope
    Excelente adquisición está guia. Por el precio de 6 dólares tengo en mi teléfono todo lo relacionado al Camino Francés, además con todas las actualizaciones en tiempo real.
  • App Not working

    By Lexilewski
    I was so excited to try this app to plan my northern route, and I spent $6 to buy the Northern route within the app. It’s not downloading the files, and when I click on a city to show places to stay, it’s blank. I wrote the people behind the app (they ask you to contact them on WhatsApp), and I can see my message hadn’t been read yet. 😒 I’m hoping this is resolved quickly, so I can amend this review and say it’s an amazing app! It has such great potential.
  • WOW! This is it!

    By Dave the Pilgrim
    Third Camino, successive years, Frances, Portuguese and now Norte. Talking about need for a Google turn by turn map, better instructions. Needed some on others, really need it on Norte! Halfway through find "Buen Camino". Wow, it does everything! Getting ready, what to take, when, which one. Most importantly, when to turn, which options are there, and, an overhead satellite view that you can zoom in on and see the house you are standing next to and which way to turn! Thank you, thank you, thank you for bringing state of the art navigation to the Caminos!
