    We arrive at Santander at 5pm on the 9th January, we will be heading to beni. But I am thinking of camping up one or two hours from Santander. Has anyone got any suggestions to a reasonable over night stopover.

    Just looked at the video on you tube. It looks good, do you park in the general parking area as they said it is on quite a slope.

    The photo I posted is from the Aire. Its as flat as you will get anywhere. The third van down is my old RMB and behind it is Smudgers gin palace.

    We've used an airre on the outskirts of Pamplona for a couple of years now, in a little place called Berriozar, coords: 42.84158, -1.66735, details here http://www.campercontact.com/campersite/detail/id/19155

    It was very quiet, very close to some supermarkets. It is a shade over 2 hours travelling at 60ish from Santander.

    Cabarceno for me! Only a short drive from the Ferry. Intended staying for one night, stayed for five nights. Beautiful wild life park, takes a good day to wander through though. The free aire has water and a dump point, and a drinking water 'font'. Lakeside parking, and two minutes walk from the village. A wonderful place to unwind, travelling from, to to the ferry.

    I have not been there but others have posted its around this location in the past. I understand it is along side the lake Lago Saxta.

    But no doubt someone who really knows what they are talking about will be on soon. (y)
