Airports in Marrakech

The airport itself is about ten kilometers from the city center, making the trip by car a short 15-minute ride. There aren’t any other airports in Marrakech, so you don’t have to worry about finding out which airport you’ll be arriving at or leaving from.

 Arriving there:

  •  You will need an embarkation card before arriving at the queue for passport control, so make sure you have a pen on you.
  • There are money-changing outlets in the Arrival halls where you can exchange your money.
  • There is one ATM in Terminal 1 and one in Terminal 2.
  • You can purchase a SIM card in a booth at the arrival hall.

Transportation from the airport:

There are two ways you can get from the Marrakech airport to downtown – either by bus or by taxis.  

  •  Taxis - The taxi “journey” starts before you even leave the airport. You’ll find hoards of taxi companies coming up to you trying to get you to ride with them – but do not surrender yet! These companies usually have much higher rates and simply walking outside of the airport to the parked taxis outside gives you an instantly lower price.
  • By Bus - For a fun trip try taking a bus! It will give you a nice tour around the city as the journey goes through multiple stops, giving you a quick overview of the city. The bus service (line 19) has hourly departures from 6.30 a.m to 11:30 p.m so if you’re arriving really late at night or early in the morning do not depend on the bus.
  • Extra: Pick up and airport transfer services - You can also pre-book a private bus transfer in advance to avoid the hassle of negotiating, getting on buses, or finding a way to get from the Marrakech airport to downtown. Your driver will immediately pick you up after you’ve passed customs and will take care of everything from that moment onwards.

Best of Marrakech: Highlights and Hidden Gems tour

Sadek did a woderful job showing us the streets of Marrakech and telling us the most amazing stories about the city! My family doesn’t speak English well (we are Brazilian) and I had a hard time finding a guide that speaks Portuguese or Spanish so my family could understand! Anyways, Sadek speaks perfect Spanish and everybody had a blast! I really recommend doing the tour with him! Great experience! Thank you so much Sadek!!!

Flavors of Marrakech: 10 Tastings Food tour

Our tour guide Mohamed was incredibly personable, knowledgeable, and friendly. He happily answered all my questions even if they were not tour specific. The food and culture that he introduced us to was remarkable and my husband and I both felt we walked away from our tour with a wealth of new knowledge. All and all, it felt like we spent a couple of hours chatting with a good Friend. Thank you! We had a lovely time
