With dazzling coastline, dramatic mountain peaks, and vast desert borders, the North African country of Morocco is a mere nine mile leap across the ocean from its neighbor 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 neighboring 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 travelers of its modernization, but Morocco still holds a patina of times past.
