Chefchaouen is situated in the mountains of Rif, just inland from Tangier and Tetouan. The area of which Chefchaouen is the main city is one of the main producers of cannabis in Morocco. Cannabis is being sold all over town, but it is both easy to notice and easy to overlook. The reason for this is that it is such an intrinsic part of the city life, it is sold together with vegetables, herbs and spices, and that nobody makes much fuzz about it.
Chefchaouen is a proof of the fact that cannabis doesn't necessarily lead to crime, as long as the cannabis itself is not considered illegal. Chefchaouen must be the safest place in Morocco and there will be no warnings against walking around in the streets even in the middle of the night.
But Chefchaouen has more attractions, and these apply to all types of travellers. The city is simply beautiful, with simple houses with illuminatingly white walls and doors as blue as the sky above you. Every street is better taken care of and cleaner than any other city I have visited in my life. But that's not all: everything here is dramatically set climbing up two mountains before the city ends in the water source where small kids swim in the most idyllic surroundings you have ever seen.
The CTM bus company (their bus is pictured here) has an office in the main bus station which is situated down the hill from the medina in Chefchaouen. You can purchase tickets in advance to most destinations within Morocco.
It takes about 4 hours by bus from Fes and Meknes to Chefchaouen (and costs around 70 Dirhams). It took us just 6 hours to get from Chefchaouen to Casablanca (there's only one bus, leaving in the morning). Private bus companies run to most other destinations not covered by the CTM company, and most drivers and owners will be milling around the main bus station. Get to the bus station in the morning for most departures.
