How to get to Morocco

Plane: the most comfortable, fastest and cheapest option to the question of how to travel to Morocco from another country. Through the international airports of Casablanca, Tangier and Agadir, Morocco is well connected with Europe, Africa and the Middle East. In Morocco there are a total of 15 international and national airports. The most important are: Casablanca (Mohammed V), Tangier (Boukhalef), Rabat (Salé), Fez (Saïss), Agadir (Al Massira), Marrakech (la Ménara), Oujda (Angad), Al Hoceima, Tetouan and Ouarzazate. Casablanca Mohammed V Airport is the main airport in Morocco. The most important airlines in the world come together here

Bus:   through the strait taking one of the ferries that depart from Spain.  The advantage of this option is that the price of the bus trip also includes the boat trip, although these boat trips can be long and tiresome.

Train: depending on train schedules, you may have to spend a night in Algeciras (Spain).

Boat: from Europe, a more romantic and less polluting option than the plane, which reaches Africa and connects Morocco with the European railway network.

How to get around Morocco

Plane: the national airline, Royal Air Maroc (RAM), offers numerous domestic flights with 18 airports to discover Morocco from north to south.

Train: The railway network of the Office National des Chemins de Fer (ONCF) runs throughout the country and the Supratours bus company takes over  when the destination city does not have a station. The high-speed train (TGV) connects Casablanca with Tangier.

Bus:  made by  the Compagnie de Transport au Maroc (CTM) as well as other private companies.

In Casablanca and Rabat you can choose a taxi, a bus or a tram. Fares are regulated and each taxi has a meter.

Car: when renting a vehicle, keep in mind that in Morocco you drive on the right and most vehicles are equipped with a manual gearbox. Traffic signs appear in French and Arabic. Highways and national roads connect Morocco from north to south.  

What to see in Morocco


It is located on the Atlantic coast of the country, at the mouth of the Bu Regreg River, which separates the city into two parts. It is the political capital and the main administrative center of Morocco, as well as the fourth imperial city. It is a curious mixture of the historical tradition of the past and modernity established in the present. It was in the 12th century when its most emblematic buildings were built, such as the Hassan Tower and the Kasbah des Oudaias. This city became the stronghold for Muslims expelled from Spain in the early 17th century.
