By DeAnna Taylor
Calling everyone in or near New York! You can now fly to Morocco for as low as $480 round-trip. Iberia Airlines has routes for as low as $480 round-trip.
You have the option to fly into Casablanca, or you can fly into Marrakesh for a little more. The travel dates on this sale span from February through most of March. The flights do include a short layover in Spain. You can use Google Flights to find the dates that work best for you.
If you take advantage of the deal by flying into Casablanca, it is very easy to get to Marrakesh. You can take a short train ride from the Casablanca airport to the main train station within the city. You will then need to transfer to a train that goes to Marrakesh. You can purchase the train tickets at the station.
Once you arrive in Marrakesh, you have several options on the types of accommodations to choose from. The most popular and authentic is a Riad. Riad’s are traditional Moroccan homes that have been transformed into a bed and breakfast style accommodation.
While visiting the city, be sure to visit the Souks in Jemaa el Fna aka “the square.” Here is where you can find everything from tourist souvenirs to authentic Moroccan spices. Be sure to bargain with shop owners for the best price. During your trip to the square, indulge in fresh squeezed Moroccan orange juice and grilled to order skewers while you sit at picnic-style tables.
If you want an experience like no other, book an appointment at a Hamam, which is a traditional spa. These spa experiences will leave you feeling refreshed and your skin will be glowing as well.
Last but not least, if you have time, take an overnight trek in the Sahara while riding on a camel. Don’t forget your camera for this one.
This flight deal is amazing. Take advantage while it is available.
