how to get from spain to tangier

what airport would be easy to catch a train to Tangier, to cross to Morocco? We think that we would stop in Spain for a night or 2 and train down and take the ferry to Tangier...any suggestons?

Most people get a coach between cities as this may be quicker (trains stop for too long).

You will go to either Algeciras or Tarifa in Spain for the ferry, Tarifa is closer to Tanger and the ferry crossings are at 2 hour intervals I believe. From Algecira it takes longer but the frequency of crossings may be greater.

There have been numerous posts covering this subject in the Tanger and Gibraltar forums.

The airports that are closest to Algeciras, from where you get the ferry to Tangier, are Jerez de la Frontera, Seville, and Malaga (in order of closest to furthest). To fly into any of these three however you'd most likely land first in Madrid or Barcelona, coming from the US. It's a fairly long bus or train ride from Madrid to Algeciras.
