Desperately need advice

Hello. I will travelling to Morocco for business trip, but because of flight schedule, I have some extra days! So January 23rd I arrive in Casablanca at noon, and then I have January 24th full day and then full day January 28th. For my business trip I will visit Jamma El Fna square, Ighaline. Would you advise spending 23rd in Casablanca and then seeing Marrakesh more on 24th and maybe doing Atlas Mountains or Essaouira. Please please advise. thanks

i have never been to casa, but here that there is not much to do there, and most say to get out asap...spend more time in marrakech and maybe a bus ride for the day/night in essaouira, for a different bit of morocco. lucky you, business trip in morocco!!

Hi,

Just to get your schedule clear am I right in thinking you arrive in Casablanca on the 23rd, have the 24th free then have business (in Casablanca?) until the 27th when you will have the 28th free and leave Morocco (from Casa?) on the 29th?

If this is so then you only have two and a half days free?

john,

just meant about cassa...that there is so much to see in morocco, not to do too much time there, if your time in morocco is limited..

Hi

This would be my suggestion

23rd Afternoon, visit the beautiful mosque Hassan II (the rest of Casablanca is not interesting.

24th Day trip to Rabat which is more interesting than Casablanca.

25th Drive to Marrakech

26th Business

27th Afternoon visit Marrakech

28th Many day trip possibilities, such as the coastal town Essaouira, the waterfalls of d'Ouzoude, the High Atlas Mountains.

But if your flight is very early on 29th, you might just want to stay in Marrakech and explore it more, so that you can leave for Casablanca in the afternoon. Or leave on a day trip on 27th afternoon and stay a night somewhere else like Essaouira.

Enjoy your trip!

Thanks very very much. I think we will just take a taxi to get from Casablanca airport to our hotel. Do you think there will be metered taxis at the airport? thanks
