About Morocco


Morocco is a gateway to Northern Africa, having spectacular coasts on both the North Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. From rugged beaches, mountains, and the vast desert to historic medinas, mazelike medieval neighborhoods, and bustling markets, you might spend weeks here and not feel like you’ve even touched the surface.

Moroccan culture is a unique blend of Berber, Arabian, and European elements found nowhere else on the planet. It has an attraction that will have you coming back for more. Continue reading for a detailed guide to where to stay, eat, and do in Morocco to make the most of your trip.


Moroccan Currency:

Morocco’s legal tender is the dirham, which is divided into 100 units called santims. Since 1882, dirhams have been the official Moroccan currency, and they are available in nine denominations of coins and four denominations of banknotes.


Most tourists who want to visit Morocco can do so without a visa if their vacation does not exceed three months (90 days); nevertheless, it is critical that your passport is valid for the period of your trip and, for some nationals, for six months after your trip ends (Canada and Australia). Visa exemption is available to citizens of the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and the majority of European Union nations. So double-check this before scheduling your trip.

Is it safe to travel to Morocco?

Safety: Morocco is typically safe for travelers, but like with any other North African nation, the culture is extremely different from the West, therefore it is best to be conscious of these differences.  The danger of crime is comparable to that of any other city in the world, therefore exercise caution in busy areas and keep an eye on your possessions, since pick-pocketing and bag snatching might occur.

It is absolutely safe to go to Morocco with children because the culture is highly family-oriented, and contrary to common assumption, it is also safe to travel as a woman. Just remember to dress modestly, follow local norms, and don’t take any comments or looking too personally. Morocco is mostly a Muslim nation, therefore dress conservatively.

As always, no matter how safe a country is, we always recommend getting travel insurance.

Travel Insurance: At the risk of sounding like your parents, buy travel insurance before you leave. It’s one of those items you don’t want to leave the house without. Depending on your travel style, we recommend either World Nomads or Safety Wing.

Language: Arabic dialects, Berber languages, and even some French, German, and Spanish are commonly spoken in Morocco. English is becoming more popular among young Moroccans, and it is commonly spoken in attractive tourist locations. When traveling, though, making an attempt with the local language goes a long way, so grab a phrasebook and give it your best go!

Electricity Socket: 230V AC electricity. Power outlets are two-prong spherical sockets with two prongs. To prevent having to buy new adaptors everywhere you travel, we recommend purchasing a Universal Travel Adaptor before you depart.


The Climate:

The climate of the nation is highly different due to the diversity of landforms and the presence of the cold Atlantic currents, as well as the proximity to the Sahara and high mountains.

It gets quite unbearably hot during a few months in Morocco, so the ideal time to visit is in the spring, when you can enjoy the Summer temperatures in the south and highlands, as well as on the Mediterranean and Atlantic beaches.

Morocco Travel Seasons:

Low Season (May to September) – Summertime in Morocco is extremely hot, with average highs reaching triple digits. If you go during this season, be aware of the temperature, drink lots of water, and follow the locals’ lead by staying in the shade from midday to 3 p.m.

Shoulder Seasons (April and October) With colder weather, the shoulder months are ideal for seeing major cities and avoiding crowds; nevertheless, bring an umbrella in case of unexpected rain in April. Temperatures in April vary from the 70s to the 80s, while temperatures in October range from the 40s to the 90s. The scenery is lush and green throughout these seasons.

High Season (November to March) – Despite highs in the 60s and 70s throughout the day, expect temperatures to plummet into the 40s by nighttime. Tourists rush here for sports and Christmas celebrations during the most popular season (did you know you can ski in Morocco?) Although it is less common, there is something magical about traveling over the Atlas Mountains while it is snowing!

What to Pack for Traveling in Morocco

In simple terms, all you need for Morocco are long shorts or trousers and t-shirts. Pack modest clothing, such as tops that cover your shoulders and knees, and you won’t draw unwanted attention.

There are many sarongs for sale in Morocco, so having one on hand is a terrific way to respect their local traditions. Shopping is a popular pastime in this country, and there are hundreds of stalls from which to purchase stuff, so don’t worry about carrying too many items.

We recommend carrying layers for every season (breathable t-shirts are fantastic! ), which you may add or remove depending on the weather! Pack additional items such as a sun hat and sunscreen in the summer, and thicker socks, woolly hats, and a packable jacket in the winter.
