Morocco is not that far when you can easily enjoy a day full of adventures there departing from any point of the Costa del Sol. A comfortable coach ride followed by a ferry trip gets you in short time from Marbella to Tangier.
A good plan for doing something different for a day is to take a day trip to another continent.

There are plenty of street markets around the city and the famous bazaar where you can get typical products such as carpets and handcrafts and admire the different and colorful architecture. For lunch time there are many restaurants where you can have a traditional local lunch and taste the best couscous, tagine and other local delicious dishes. Many restaurants offer exotic dances performances like Berber dancer so you can have a great experience. After lunch you can try the famous Moroccan mint tea and learn about the tea ritual at any local tea shop.
