Re: Casablanca to Portugal by coach

Supratours coach service goes to Spain, France and Italy from Morocco.
Not sure where in Spain or whether Portugal is included but try to contact them by fax (don't have e-mail addy); your communication should ideally be in French.

If you unable to find a direct coach, an alternative would be the train to Tangier, the ferry to Algeciras and a coach to Lisbon via Seville, this would be the most direct route and one a coach might take.
Hope this helps.

Travel Tips for Casablanca

Many of us call it the CASBAH...

by pjallittle


Many of us call it the CASBAH but this is what they call it. Call it by any name you wish, it is a fascinating maze of endless narrow lanes, without a guide, it would take years to find your way out of it.

We disembarked from the ship and proceeded from the docks where we were met by ALI who is the Senior Tour Guide in all of TANGIER. He is articulate, given great deference and one should endeavour to seek him out.

He has his own personal driver who maintains a modern vehicle. The driver does not speak English, he really is just that, a driver. He will speak now and then to inform Ali of an item of interest, so we presumed. There were four of us in the vehicle, fortunately a full sized car.

HASSAN II GREAT MOSQUE...

by LysDor

THE PURIFICATION HALL

The Hall is located underneath the Prayer Hall. The canals on both sides (enlarge the picture to see them!) are covered with transparent glass on top of which flows some water. This allows light to enter the Purification Hall and gives a sensation of peace and tranquillity.

Maps and good humour :-)))

On the coast, 100 kilometres...

by Branco

On the coast, 100 kilometres to the south discover the old fortified cities, former Portuguese trading posts.
El Jadida is built on an area with a mild climate, is surnamed 'Moroccan Deauville' and has a beautiful and sandy beach named Sidi Bouzid beach.
When under the control of the Portuguese its name was Mazagan. There was (and still is) an important Portuguese cistern, a structure with a gothic architecture initially used as granary before its transformation as a cistern in 1542 (1100 m2 of the room’s surface).

Car Parking, Pay the Guard

by Doctor38

Parking in all big cities means dealing with the guards. Most of these guards are licensed. They also carry an identification card and wear a long blue uniform. An hour or two parking you car in Casablanca will cost you 1-2 DH. I never saw one arguing the fare with drivers. An overnight parking will cost you 10 DH.

I have seen guard arresting people and pulling them to the police station for damaging cars under their watch. Those are poor people how rent these spaces and do expect to make money for their work. They space is manned by 2 people; one in the day and another one at night. Those guards will be happy to wash your car for 10 DH

In certain areas do town you’ll see parking pay machine which is much more expensive than the guards. On one occasion I did not pay so when I came back I found the police applying a wheel lock. I had to pay 100 DH in fines
