Things to Do and See in Morocco

To fully experience all that a Morocco vacation has to offer, there are a few major cities you won’t want to miss. Wander labyrinthine passages through the medinas of imperial Tangier before bartering with locals at the bazaars for colorful wares and fabrics. Embark on a Morocco honeymoon expedition to Old Hollywood’s sweetheart, Casablanca, or set off to the Atlas Mountain foothills to find Marrakesh, the heart of Morocco, where you’ll find open-air markets and street performers in abundance. Take a fun ride on a sand board in the desert and visit a Berber kasbah.  

Regardless of which destination and experience you choose, be sure to make one of these and allow time to visit smaller villages along the way; you never know what ancient marvel you may come across.

The Weather in Morocco

Morocco weather experiences extremes. In the summer months, the coastline may swell with cool breezes and seaside temperatures, while central cities including Marrakech, Fes, and Meknes are sweltering and uncomfortable for outdoor travel.

Winter, too, is exceptional. If you’re traveling to Morocco to trek through the mountainous regions, it is particularly important that you avoid winter and early spring seasons, given their cold nights and flash flooding from melting snow and rainfall that can prove to be quite hazardous.

Spring is widely considered to be the best time to visit the country in terms of the Morocco weather you’ll find. While Central and southern Morocco may experience sunny, albeit chilly days through winter, from the end March through May, the country warms to a delightful, temperate climate, which is perfect for travel.

Morocco Transportation Options

Many Moroccan cities are served by a public transport rail network that links popular destinations in the north, along the coast, and all the way to Marrakesh. Throughout the country, you will also find an abundance of buses and taxis that are customarily shared by multiple passengers.

While travel options are pretty good throughout the country, some visitors prefer to rent a car, or a car with driver guide, to gain access to smaller local villages that aren’t as easily accessible by public transportation. Of course, TravelStore can help you arrange your trip to Morocco in advance, as part of your unique trip arrangements.

Morocco Hotels and Resorts

Morocco has an abundance of accommodations for every budget throughout its country. Travel to Morocco’s Marrakech or Casablanca, and enjoy palatial amenities fit for royalty in suites that overlook historic medinas or extend to sweeping oceanfront views: luxury at its finest.

Some top quality Morocco resorts are even housed in former palaces, extending a true opportunity to experience the splendor that Morocco has to offer its guests, At many of our Morocco resorts and carefully chosen hotels, we extend special considerations and amenities to travelers to make the best of your stay.

Even in the desert, you can find luxury campsites that extend comfort into the Sahara. But for adventurous travelers, TravelStore has taken care to find handpicked hotels, offering immersion in the local culture. If you’re curious, our in-country contacts will assist you with any necessary arrangements and accommodations you require.

Unique Adventures and Experiences in Morocco

Spend time in Menkes, a city that blurs the lines between contemporary culture and historic heritage. Follow the Bab Mansour (a beautifully preserved 9th-century gate), peruse the Dar Jamai Museum (home to a wealth of captivating exhibits), or absorb Moroccan culture inside the Ryad Bahia. 

If you’re interested in things to do in Morocco that incorporate Arab-Muslim culture and architecture, don’t miss the UNESCO World Heritage site in Fez. As one of the world’s most complicated mazes, not to mention the world’s most sizable car-free area in a city, this mecca of ancient culture is not to be missed.

If you travel to Morocco, venture off the beaten path to Merzouga to begin an unforgettable journey through the Sahara desert. Here, Mohayut guides will lead you by camel into the vast desert expanse to soak up rich Berber culture of music, cuisine, and local humor. If you’re ready to travel by camel, make this part of your Morocco vacation.
