About Morocco Travel
Morocco is blessed with maze-like medinas, historic sights, a dry and desolate deserts, beautiful beaches and stunning mountains. Here you can get lost in the labyrinth of back streets, hike to snowcapped peaks and sample some of North Africa’s finest cuisine.
Morocco was our entrance into Africa and I have to say that while we didn’t have great experiences with the people, we’d love to return and see if we could travel the country different now that we’re a little bit older and a little wiser.
Overall, getting lost in the Medinas, visiting tanneries and being submersed in the culture and history of Morocco was incredible and I really think that it’s one of the countries that we’ve been to that deserves another chance.

THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT
When To Travel To Morocco
The absolute best time to visit Morocco is in the Spring (mid-March to May) and the Fall (September to October). During these months most of the country isn't too hot and isn't too cold, making it the Goldilocks period for many travellers.
Because of Moroccos's scorching summers, this is also the peak tourist season so expect a few more crowds than you'd find in the summer or winter.
The Moroccan summers (June to August) can be unbearably hot, particularly if you're visiting the Sahara Desert. However, more mid-altitude places like Casablanca and Essaouira can be a bit more pleasant.
The Rif Mountains and the northern coast of the country enjoy a pretty temperate climate year round with hot, sunny days being the norm.
So long as you're not hiking high in the mountains or you're spending all of your time in the north, Morocco will be warm in the summer so make sure to dress appropriately with long, loosely-fitting, breathable clothing.
The winter months run from November to February and during this time the temperatures in the south can be mild and comfortable, but you may still need a jacket in the evenings. In the north of Morocco, the winter brings rain and cloudy whether, while high in the Atlas Mountains it can be freezing cold with the peaks remaining capped in snow until as late as July.
