Figuig, Morocco

Hotels and alternatives
Hotels open and close here from year to year. Depending on your luck you will find 0-4 hotels, but if you strike lucky (which is likely), remember that this is the time to bring your sleeping bag. Figuig's hotel managers have still a bit to learn on how to run a hotel, and how to organize cleaning. The nearest good hotel is in Bouarfa, the last town you pass through on your way south to Figuig.

Restaurants and alternatives
Simple food in simple coffee shops is what you can expect from Figuig. The alternative to this is is simple food from food stalls. Figuig's attempts on restaurants have the strange habit of taking day-before-orders.

Change Money
There is a bank in town that will change money.

Buses are the most reliable transportation for getting into, and out of, Figuig.
