La Tomatina Camping in Bunol for Those on a Budget

While supposedly camping in Bunol is not allowed for the La Tomatina festival, five of us spent 2 nights camping for the 2010 festival yesterday. We slept in two different spots. The first night we slept down a driveway in a field (take a left at the roundabout at the bottom of the hill and walk about 20 meters). The 2nd night we walked halfway up the main hill toward the train station and set up our tents in the park to the left (if walking up) of the main road. The ground there was extremely hard, but the place was lit and fairly secluded. Whereas the first night, we spent all night listening to raging techno music from a nearby club — the 2nd night was actually quite peaceful with a water fall right next to our camping spot in the park.

So it is possible to stay in Bunol for La Tomatina — you just have to be resourceful and willing to tough it out in the wild. If we had to do it all over again, we would have slept in the park both nights of course, and would have brought more padding to sleep on top of so our backs didn’t ache so bad in the morning. Oh well; live and learn.

  • Really good knowledge! I have been searching for everything like that for a time now. With thanks!

  • With almost everything which appears to be building throughout this particular subject material, many of your points of view are generally fairly refreshing. Nevertheless, I beg your pardon, because I do not subscribe to your entire plan, all be it radical none the less. It appears to everybody that your commentary are not completely rationalized and in fact you are generally yourself not completely convinced of your point. In any case I did enjoy looking at it.

  • Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  • I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

  • The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  • Hey! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks!

  • Awesome post, I actually anticipate fresh news by you.

  • Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
