BOOK TRAIN TICKETS
If you are flying to Barcelona, you are about 290km from Castellon. The Barcelona Airport links to the main train station “Sants” the train station.
It is now also easy to make plane train connections in Madrid. The metro connects Barajas Airport (Madrid’s international airport) with the Atocha train station. Cost is about $1.50. Then it is a 5 hr. train ride to Castellon or Benicassim (that is on normal trains — the “super” high speed train does it in 3 hrs.).
One-way train fare from Barcelona on regular trains runs about $25 or so — and from Madrid this would jump to about $40 again on regular trains. Costs on the high-speed luxury trains will likely be about 50% higher.
In Benicassim, the local bus line runs every 1/2 hr. in the summer season and connects the Hotel Voramar and Villa Elisa conference site to downtown Benicassim (pueblo viejo) (it can also be walked in 15-20 minutes walk from the hotel and Villa Elisa). The buses also continue to Castellon which is 40-45 min. by bus.
