Newsletter 8

More than 3 years ago this adventure started for us, and although it seemed that it would never come, it’s now just only over 3 weeks away!

Here are some clarifications:

  1. ACCOMMODATION AT AMARA BERRI SCHOOL

All participants staying at the Amara Berri School will have a bed. For that you will have to pay a deposit of 50€ which will be returned at the end of the event. The payment of the deposit will be made in cash at the school and at the end of the event we will return those 50€ if the bed is in good condition. The beds have no sheets or pillow, so we recommend you bring a sleeping bag or similar.

  1. WHEN CAN I STAY AT AMARA BERRI SCHOOL OR IN THE CAMPER AREA?

The Unicon18 officially begins on July 27. Due to the high number of participants arriving on July 26 we have added an extra day of accommodation, this day is July 26. Participants who arrive on July 26 can stay at the Amara Berri School or Camper area (if you have booked this option) from 19:00. Staying on the 26th for those who have booked this option will not cost you extra, but it will not have breakfast in the morning of the 27th and no cleaning service, as these services were hired from July 28.

In short, you can stay on July 26 starting from 19:00.

  1. HOW DO I GET TO SAN SEBASTIAN?

Please check this link on our website: http://eng.unicon18.com/donostia-san-sebastian/

For those arriving at the Madrid Airport, the best way to get to San Sebastian is to come by bus: https://www.alsa.es/# . The bus leaves directly from the airport (Madrid Airport – Barajas T4 >>> Donostia-SanSebastian). You can also reach the city center by subway from the airport and from there you have different options to travel: Atocha Station in case you want to travel by train or Avenida America in case you want to do it by bus.

For those arriving at the Barcelona Airport, you have to go to Sants Station at the city center and from there you can travel to San Sebastian by train or bus. The option of traveling by bus is usually cheaper but you can have problems to carry large packages. By train it is easier to carry bulky luggage.

For those arriving at the Bilbao Airport, you can take a bus at the airport that will take you directly to San Sebastian.

Enjoy your trip to everyone!

  1. WHAT STORES WILL I FIND AT UNICON18?

These are the stores that we will have:
