Quad biking on the sand dunes and beach of Essaouira

Missing the flight home due to some bizarre rules at Marrakesh airport!

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Would rather have pulled the poo out of the snails we ate in the square in Marrakesh before eating them, but didn't realise that was what you were supposed to do.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    Yea, we missed the flight home because we "only" turned up at the airport an hour beforehand. The rule at Marrakesh airport is that you are not allowed to go through security less than an hour before your flight, so we had to sit an watch the plane fly off. When I said this was a strange rule, I was told "well, we think its weird that you eat chicken"...

  • How was the food?

    La Salama in Marrakesh is good

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Don't do a cannon ball in the hotel pool unless you're sure it's a deep one.

  • Transportation Tips?

    Arrange bus travel the day before, if you don't want to spend all day waiting to go to your next destination.

  • Any surprises?

    Sheep's brains actually taste quite nice

  • Booking details?
