The best way to enjoy the fiesta is to stay in a real bed in an apartment. Yes you can go with a tour company, but they stay miles out of town in a campsite. Yes you can try crashing out on the grass, but there are dangers, and it can rain and it is difficult to last the pace. But the main problem about the apartment option is that it is generally very expensive and certain dates are already all booked out. However there is one option that still has availability and is far cheaper than the other prices. If you are thinking of going to the fiesta to take in the closing ceremony which is fantastic then try hitting the town for the 13th and 14th July. That way you can see a bull run at 8.00 am on the 14th and the closing ceremony at midnight on the 14th. The Pamplona Posse  www.pamplona.co.uk  can fix you up with a two night package in an apartment in Pamplona for £99 GBP in total ($198 USD) If you also want a balcony space to watch the bulls then they can also fix that up for £45 GBP ($90 USD). If you want to enquire about any other dates then drop an email to [email=pamplonaposse@hotmail.com]pamplonaposse@hotmail.com[/email] the other dates are very expensive and availability is limited. All the people going with the Pamplona Posse have a walking tour of the bullrun course with an expert runner who has run with the bulls over 100 times. If it is just information you are after check out the websites and feel free to email any questions. The fiesta in pamplona is the most fun you can have with your clothes on!

Just to verify, are you making profit off of this?

Technically, nobody is going to make any profit with that deal, as that is far cheaper than most places will charge. The Pamplona Posse is a very loose bull running club with a club house bar in Calle San Gregorio called the Harp. Well worth turning up at for advice and a drink. The deal for the 13th and the 14th is a bit of a loss leader, I think is the term. Or so the Posse tell me! I am just passing on the good deals. The normal expensive ones are quite pricy, but then again accommodation is a nightmare in Pamplona for the fiesta. The best thing about the Pamplona Posse guys is that they have an expert bullrunner who takes everybody on a walking tour of the bullrun course and explains what to do and what not to do. Nobody else does that, and it does sound like a very good thing for anybody thinking of running with the bulls. In addition their website www.pamplona.co.uk has a lot of good advice, that is why you put their articles up in your own advice section.
