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

I visited Marrakesh for the first time, I’m an experienced traveller but a solo female traveller getting to know the city and feel safe was crutical. My first day Khalil picked me up at my Riad for a ‘hidden gems’ tour. Khalil was the perfect guide and introduced me to the magical city! He is very well educated and so knowledgeable in history and culture and showed me a Marrakesh I wouldn’t have been able to access on my own. Areas I wouldn’t have found, and insight into food, products and so much more! With his in-depth knowledge of the city and all the details it really opened up so many perspectives, and his advice made it easy for me to move around on my own later. He is also a very pleasant person to spend time with and I can not recommend him enough!

Best of Marrakech: Highlights and Hidden Gems tour

We just came back from our trip around Morocco, and the day we have spent with Jaffar was definitely one of my favorites. We have learned so many interesting facts about Marrakech, and we have seen so many beautiful and hidden places in The city, which we couldn’t find without Jaafar’s guidance and knowledge. I was extremely happy with our city tour especially considering the fact that we had our teenage child with us, and as much as difficult it is to impress a teenager in today’s world - that much Jaafar kept our youngster’s attention for the whole time and the tour was super interesting also for her. I will never forget our visit in the local bakery and the taste of the crispy bread, straight from the oven. Preparation of the traditional, Moroccan tea is not a secret anymore as Jaafar taught me, and showed me how to do it with all the details. The Higlights of Marrakech it is an unique city experience, full of secrets, colors, scents and flavors and Jaafar helped us to discover all of it.
