Hotels and alternatives
Good on hotels, even if there is little to choose from for people with money. Summer comes with higher prices and more problems on finding a vacant room. But more of a problem in this season are the marriage parties, where there is a tradition of driving around town from 23.00 till 4.00 in the morning with cars, honking constantly. Closing windows will not be enough

Restaurants and alternatives
Excellent on food, and you can vary the Moroccan cuisine with some Spanish food. Larache offers a lot for connoisseurs of sea food.

There are no discos in town, but Larache does not go to bed early in summer — town centre is bustling until around 24.00.

Change Money
Larache has necessary banks for changing money, as well as at least two ATMs that handle international credit cards (mainly VISA).

Buses serve Larache well, and are convenient, and will bring you to the most important destinations. Taxis are tricky, and the taxi drivers are apparently better off than their colleagues elsewhere in Morocco.
