What to expect in Morocco

A mere nine mile leap across the ocean from its neighbour to the north, Spain, Morocco is one of only three countries with both Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts, while its interior is a study in aridity replete with dunes, rocks and sand. Its cultural influences – Arab, Berber, French, Jewish, and Spanish – contribute to its uniqueness among North African neighbouring nations. The legendary cities of Casablanca, Marrakesh, Tangier, and Fes host bustling spice markets and remarkably stunning mosques and hammams, drawing thousands of European vacationers. Cell phones and motorcycles remind travellers of its modernization, but Morocco still holds a patina of times past.

I had a wonderful time. World Endeavors organized everything. I was able to have clear communication to get picked up from the airport. The local coordinators made it easy meeting my host family and helping us get adjusted during the first week. I would definitely recommend going to Morocco. The people are hospitable. I felt safe as a woman. We were able to easily explore other cities. I learned more Arabic and practiced my skills on a daily basis.

Morocco FAQs

Is Morocco a Muslim Country?

Yes, Morocco is predominately Muslim, with 99.9% identifying as Sunni Muslim.

What Should You Wear in Morocco?

In Morocco, opt for modest and respectful clothing, particularly in traditional and rural areas. Choose loose-fitting clothes that cover shoulders, cleavage, and knees for women; men should also avoid revealing attire. Pack layers for varying climates, comfortable shoes, and consider a scarf for head coverings at religious sites. In beach areas, swimwear is acceptable, but remember to cover up outside those areas. Adapting to local customs and wearing traditional clothing is appreciated, and be mindful of cultural sensitivity.

How Far is Morocco from Spain?

Morocco is located on the northwest coast of Africa and is separated from Spain by the Strait of Gibraltar. The distance between the two countries is approximately 8 miles.

When is the Best Time to Visit Morocco?

The best time to visit Morocco is usually between March and May or September to November. These months offer the best combination of pleasant temperatures and lower rainfall. This is also when the country is least crowded, meaning you’ll be able to experience the full beauty of Morocco without the hustle and bustle of the peak tourist season. However, Morrocco has much to offer throughout the year.

Is Morocco Safe?

Morocco is generally safe for tourists. Watch for petty theft in crowded areas, respect local customs, and use reputable transportation. Be cautious of scams and stay informed about travel advisories and health precautions.
