A trip to Morocco is the guarantee to be immediately out of touch for a reasonable budget and without going very far. The variety of landscapes is incredible and it is enough to leaf through a tourist guide of Morocco to realize it... From the mountains of the High Atlas to the dunes of the Sahara, passing by the wild Atlantic coast and the architectural richness of the imperial cities, so many contrasts and beauty... Nature lovers will discover Morocco during a trek in the mountains in the Rif or on camels in the Moroccan desert, surfers will enjoy the waves of Essaouira and the rest of the Atlantic coast, lovers of fine sandy beaches will be thrilled in Agadir, and those who prefer oriental idleness will happily relax in a riad in Marrakech, stroll in the palm grove or in the magnificent Majorelle garden and go haggling in the souk next to Jemaa el-Fna Square. As for history lovers, they will not stop getting lost in the medinas of Chefchaouen, Fez, Tangier, Meknes, Tetouan... all as different as the others. Finally, lovers of gastronomy, couscous and other tagine will not be left out, as Moroccan cuisine is succulent and varied. And it is only a sample of the thousand and one wonders of Morocco, some of which are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites!

The must-see places in Morocco

When to go to Morocco?

The high tourist season in Morocco varies from one region to another, globally from mid-October to mid-May. If you like peace and quiet, avoid French school holidays. For the South, if April and May are the best times to discover the fauna, it is better to go to Morocco in March to be more relaxed. For the northern coasts, summer is the high season, as Moroccans rush there to enjoy a little freshness. The low tourist season runs from mid-May to mid-October. For reasons of economy and tranquility, it may be advantageous to travel to Morocco in low season and it is the best season to leave while saving money and preserving your travel budget; however, it happens that during this period some services and entertainment are suppressed, especially during Ramadan

There are also a large number of thematic stays: discovery of the imperial cities, escapade to the Sahara, sports stay in the Moroccan High Atlas, excursions off the beaten track, Moroccan culture... or all-inclusive stays.

Well served by airlines, Morocco is a safe destination and the Moroccan authorities have made great efforts to secure and manage tourism throughout the country. Beware of petty crime in major Moroccan cities such as Agadir, Marrakech and especially Casablanca where unfortunately, snatching is quite common. Be careful in Fez, which has become an unsafe city in recent years with an increase in petty crime and assaults in the evening.

In terms of means of transport, Morocco has an excellent rail network that links most of the country's major cities, as does the CTM's long-distance bus network, which is however more economical. Rental cars in Morocco remain quite expensive compared to other Maghreb countries and roads are not always good, reducing them to simple arid tracks in the south. For those who want to cover long distances in Morocco there are air tickets for domestic flights at generally fair prices
