  The Refugio at Ruitelan
by into-thin-air

This was another of our Most Favourite Refugios on the entire route !! We had done a Long Hard day and when we arrived here Carlos, the guy who runs the place looked after us Exceptionally well !!
This is only a small Refugio so arrive early to avoid disappointment. there are two dormitories, one 10 bedded and one 8 bedded, Great toilet and shower facilities and a Very Homely atmosphere !!
There is a nice little area to sit outside as well as a comfortable dining-room and this Refugio really is a Great Place to wind down and relax after a hard day on the Camino !!!
Carlos is a Fantastic cook and makes a Wonderful evening meal and sells reasonably priced cold drinks from his fridge !! Also he makes you a Substantial breakfast the next morning to see you on your way !!
This really is a Refugio Not to be Missed !!!
