My girlfriend and I are planning a quick trip into Morocco while we are in Spain and Portugal this summer (May-June). Any suggestions are welcome:

  • Where to go on such a short trip? Tangier? Casablanca? Marrakesh? Somewhere else?
  • How to get there? Ferry from Spain? Fly from Gibraltar?
  • How to get around once there?
  • Any cultural things to include?
  • Anything to avoid?

Not looking for an organized tour per se, as we prefer to do our own thing. Though we welcome others that are interested in travelling with us!

Thanks.
Patric

Hi Patric,

How long will a quick trip be?
If it's just a few days, it might be better to just hop over from Spain into Tangier for a few days, maybe visiting another town or so just south of there.

If (much) longer, I would advise one city and visit some of the countryside as well. Just rent a cheap car and travel from Marrakech towards Ait Ben Haddou for example or the Todra Gorge. And if you really have time: visit Erg Chigaga or Erg Chebbi for some amazing desert landscapes.

Cheers
Michael.
