    Chefchaouen Morocco

    Getting to Morocco from Spain is very easy. You can but tickets for a ferry from Algeciras (a rather ugly port town).

    You can go to Tangiers or the Spanish colony of Ceuta(Sebta in Arabic) in Africa. After hearing how hectic Tangiers is we opted to go to Ceuta and cross the b
    order to Morocco from there. We had no trouble and it was very easy to do.

    Cueta is very Spainish looking and in reality doesn't have that much to see (though it's 10 times better than Algeciras!). It is probably best to hang around there as short as possible. Being a port town you'll also find a few dodgy characters(my friend got mugged there).

    Once across the border we walked 4km to a small town called something like Fli dek (I don't know how to write it). If you don't want to walk you can get a taxi. From there we got a bus to Tetouan then on to Chaoun.

    If you want to go from Algeciras to
    Tangiers there are about 9 crossings a day. The journey lasts about 2.5 hours.

    From Algeciras to Ceuta there are more crossings (about 12) per day and the journey only takes 1.5 hours or 30 minutes on a jetfoil (which we took!). I recommend this way as it is the quickest and the cheapest.

    You can also go from Malaga to Melilla (the other Spanish colony in Africa), but this way takes 6.5 hours or Tarifa-Tangiers which takes 1 hour, but there is only one crossing per day.

    A visit to Morocco makes a great day trip or weekend break if you in the province of Cádiz.

    If you wanna experience the "african experience" you can have one of these 1 or 2 days organized tours to TANGER, in Morocco, for 48 euros.
    Ferry, city visit, lunch and ferry return included.
    BUT you have to go on your own to Tarifa or Algeciras.
