AIRLINES – AIRPORT & BUS TRANSFERS
How do I organise transport to Solid Surf & Yoga House if I am already in Morocco?
If you are in the area of Agadir, your pick-up or drop-off will be free. If your flight lands in Marrakech you can take a bus to Agadir, our driver will pick you up at the bus stop in Agadir. If you are in another part of Morocco you will need to organize your own transport. The bus is a good way to go.
Yes, once you have provided us with your arrival details our driver will pick you up inside where you exit the airport in Agadir. The driver will have a sign with your name on it. Once we have confirmed your airport pick-up, please do not organize your own transport. If you have trouble finding our driver at the airport, please call or Whatsapp Ayoub +212676889496. Please note that there is no Wi-Fi at the airport. However, if you don’t want to use your own phone you can buy a local simcard with data and credit at the airport or elsewhere.
Bus or Taxi transfer from Marrakech to Agadir and back..
Agadir Airport would be our first recommendation to fly into. The second best option which can be a very good option, price wise, is to fly into Marrakech.
The problem here is that we don`t offer a pick up or drop off in Marrakech, but we can give you some tips how to get to Agadir and back to Marrakech smoothly. Listen!
When your flight lands in Marrakech you have two options:
1. You can reserve with us or arrange yourself a grand taxi to agadir. The costs are high but its the fastest way to get to Agadir and straight to our surf house. Costs are about 110 / 120 euro one way for the taxi. Cost remain the same when the taxi is shared!
2. You can also take the bus (recommended by us). From the airport you take a Petit Taxi to the bus station in Marrakech. There are two bus companies that travel between Marrakech and Agadir: CTM and Supratours. Please book your bus ticket online in advance, especially during public holidays such as Ramadan. As soon as you buy your ticket (don`t forget your return ticket) then you know your estimated arrival time at the bus station in Agadir.
Please call or Whatsapp our manager, Ayoub +212676889496 or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Our driver will pick you up at the bus stop in Agadir.
We will drop you off at the airport in Agadir and also drop you off at the bus station in Agadir for you return to Marrakech. For the bus ticket back to Marrakech, this is part of your own responsibility! We can arrange tickets for your return to Marrakech, only if we have time to arrange it. We are not responsible for any delays or fully booked busses. We buy the tickets that fit your departure time best based on the availability. However, we advise to book your return ticket early in advance by yourself!
Please note that there is no Wi-Fi at the airport. However, there is the option to buy a local simcard (4 euro) with data at the airport or elsewhere.

Vaccines and safety
Do I need vaccines for Morocco?
There are no essential vaccinations for Morocco required. However, all tourists are strongly advised to consider adequate cover against Poliomyelitis and Tetanus (childhood boosters) and Typhoid and Hepatitis A (food and water diseases). Those planning longer trips or visiting more rural parts of Morocco will also need to consider cover against diseases like Hepatitis B and Rabies. Ideally, you should get the vaccinations 4-6 weeks before travel, as some vaccinations require multiple doses and an immune reaction time.
