The mystifying city of Marrakech, Morocco, is a delight to the traveler’s senses. As a fast-growing tourist destination, the largest city in Morocco welcomed a record-breaking 2 million visitors in 2017. Marrakech’s Medina dates to the 10th century when it was a Berber walled city, and its souks sell everything from fabrics to carpets to household goods, for negotiable prices.
When arriving in at Marrakech Menara Airport, there are a few ways to get from passport control to the center of the bustling city. The first option is to arrange a private transfer service with your hotel or riad. This can be scheduled in advance and can cost anywhere $40–100. But depending on your budget and your skepticism at finding your accommodation on your own amid the tiny alleyways and nameless streets, a pre-arranged private airport transfer may be worth every dirham.
If you feel confident enough to find your final destination and your French and/or Arabic skills are up to par, you can consider taking a petit taxi. The beige-colored sedans are often waiting outside the airport, and drivers will do everything they can to make themselves known. Be sure to agree on a price before you agree to a ride as some drivers can decide to adjust the fare without warning. A standard taxi ride from the airport can take approximately 10 minutes and should not cost more than $7 to $10.
