Ceuta to Tetouan

Were going to be traveling from Ceuta to Tetouan later this year. Can anyone recommend the best way to make the journey...bus or train?

There is no train. You have to walk cross the Spanish/Moroccan border first and from there, it's a short taxi ride to Tetouan. Moroccans usually do this trip in a shared taxi (6 people max) but I find it uncomfortable, better to negotiate the price and have the whole taxi to yourselves. It shouldn't be more than 150 dirham from the border to Tetouan but you'll have to bargain hard for that.

Alternatively, you could take the ferry from Algeciras to the Tangier MED (not Tangier Port) terminal and get the taxi from the port there. Although it may cost a little more the advantage of this is avoiding the step of having to get from the port of Ceuta to the border, 3 km away, another taxi ride. Once you clear customs in Tangier Med there are taxis waiting to take you straight to where you want to go.

Just outside Ceuta ferry port, take a taxi to the Moroccan border (the taxi fare is approximately €5). Then walk for about 5 min to the Moroccan border and pass through the customs checkpoint where you'll have to fill out a customs yellow form with your passport number, destination, duration of your stay, etc... These forms are available at the customs booths.

When you clear Morocco customs, then walk for a couple of minutes to the taxi station (blue color taxis) and make sure to negotiate the price with the taxi driver. The taxi costs approximately 90 Dirhams (€9), and it takes more or less 40 min to get to downtown Tetouan . The taxi fare is much cheaper if you share the taxi with other passengers, but I don't recommend it.
