Frequently Asked Questions

  • When is the best time to visit Morocco?

    The best time to visit Morocco depends on what you’re most wanting to experience. Defined by the High Atlas Mountains, rolling Sahara and coastal beaches, Morocco is ideal during the height of spring and fall — from mid-February to May and September to November— for all-around pleasant temperatures across most of the country. The shoulder season from November to February makes for cooler and comfortable temperatures in the Sahara Desert as well as festive holiday celebrations in Marrakesh for Christmas and the New Year. Summertime from June to August means warmer temperatures and a perfect time to visit Morocco’s Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts.

  • What is the difference between Casablanca and Marrakech?

    Among the most interesting cities to visit in Morocco, Casablanca and Marrakech both teem with culture and history but are also uniquely their own. The main difference between Casablanca and Marrakech is the way each city allows a visitor to experience time in Morocco. Traditional Marrakech brings to life an ancient way of life still present in its bustling medina, endless souks (markets) — such as the famed Djemaa el-Fna — and labyrinth-like alleyways, backed by views of the iconic Koutoubia minaret and snow-capped Atlas Mountains. An Atlantic port as well as the business capital of Morocco, Casablanca is a modern cosmopolitan city and home to the stunning Hassan II Mosque; its towering minaret is considered to be the tallest religious structure in the world.

  • How do I visit the Moroccan spice route?

    Along the Spice Route that stretched from China through the Middle East and Africa to Europe, Morocco became a hub for an abundance of exotic spices that came to define Moroccan cuisine.

  • What should I pack on a journey to Morocco?

    When deciding on what to pack for Morocco, choose versatile, casual clothing that can be layered if the weather (or level of air-conditioning) requires. Smart casual attire is appropriate for evenings and formal clothing is not necessary. While there is no strict dress code in Morocco, it is relatively conservative country and appropriate for both sexes to cover their arms, legs and shoulders (women should pack a scarf for this purpose). This is especially true when visiting temples, mosques and other religious sites, which require conservative dress. We also recommend wearing or carrying a pair of socks when sightseeing, since shoes must be removed when visiting certain religious sites. Most importantly, if you enjoy shopping, be sure to leave space in your luggage for Moroccan souvenirs, gifts and keepsakes.
