How long from Essaouira to Casablanca

We're ending our Morocco trip in Essaouira, and will have an early flight back from Casablanca leaving at 7 a.m. the following day. We plan to go to Casablanca in the evening, stay overnight in an airport hotel and then get on the plane. We'll probably take a bus or grand taxi from Essaouira to Marrakech, and then a train from Marrakech to Casablanca.

Our question -- how late can we stay in Essaouira? We don't mind getting to Casablanca late in the evening, but we also don't want to risk missing our plane.

The latest bus/train combination leaving Essaouira is 3.15 pm arriving as Casa Voyageur at 10.10 pm but then you still have to get to the airport. The one before that leaves at 11.45 am. Visit www.oncf.ma to look up times.

Thank you. Do you know how late we could leave if we took a grand taxi back to Marrakech, or would it make a difference?

With a grand taxi it shouldn't make too much difference. I usually plan three hours from Essaouira to Marrakech just to be safe. I'm not a fast driver. Be sure to check www.oncf.ma for the train schedules so you don't arrive too late. If you are staying at the only airport hotel they have a shuttle that runs from the hotel to the airport. You can actually take the train to the airport terminal but I think you have to change somewhere along the line. Check the web site again to be sure. You could take the hotel bus then the next morning to the terminal.
