Pick a destination

Know before you go to Morocco

While you can visit the main spots such as Casablanca and Marrakech, there are also hidden gems in the more rural areas of Morocco which are a must-see. Keep in mind that Morocco is a little bit more conservative, so it is advised to keep aware of your surroundings if you are a female traveler.

Best time to visit Morocco?

I have visited Morocco in April and it was amazing. I can also say that it is a great year-round destination. With its coastline, mountains, and desert landscapes, it’s an incredibly diverse country that offers something unique to see any time of the year.

January is the wettest and coldest month and July and August are the hottest– so you’ll find they’re the least crowded. Spring (March & April) and Fall (September & October) have the most pleasant weather-wise.

What to expect in Morocco

Language spoken in Morocco

Morocco is a melting pot of languages. The most common language is Arabic, but many locals also speak French (most common), Spanish (in the north), Berber (indigenous populations) and English (because of tourism).

Currency used in Morocco

The currency in Morocco is called a Dirham. 1 Euro is equivalent to about 11 Moroccan Dirhams.

Credit Cards and ATMs

Most of the retailers accept cards as payment but I had a situation where the internet was bad and they could not process the cards, so it is advised to always keep some cash near you, and of course you will need cash for small shops. There are mostly ATMs in major cities.

Is it safe in Morocco?

I have read and heard a lot about the safety of Morocco on different social media platforms and I can say that they are completely false. Morocco for me was one of the safest countries that I have visited and people were nice and very pleasant to talk to. But keep in mind that it is a tourist country and that salesmen there are very good at their job.

Cost of food in Morocco

Cheap, cheap and cheap. Oh, I sorry did I say cheap? Yes, eating in Morocco is extremely cheap and the meals are extremely good. Mid-range restaurants will cost you around 12 Euros for two people. If you like a little bit more expensive taste luxury restaurants will cost you around 20 Euros per meal which is less than most cities can pride on.
