Morocco Tourist Information. Welcome to Morocco!
Dear visitor, welcome to my Morocco web pages. Here you will find information in order to prepare a visit to this unique country in Northwest Africa.
Morocco is a country that will surprise you. The offer of places to visit in Morocco is quite varied. From busy medieval cities to desert excursions; from relaxed beach towns to scenic mountain ranges.
On these web pages you will find information about three of the imperial cities: Meknes, Fez and Marrakech; information about one of the top beach destinations in the North of Africa, Essaouira; and some information about the commercial capital of Morocco, Casablanca.
When to Go/Climate: During the summer season temperatures can be unbearable. The best seasons to visit the bustling Imperial cities are early Spring and late Fall. Winters are cold, especially in the Atlas area. During the holy Ramadan (September/October) some restaurants may close.
Get in: Casablanca and Marrakech are the main ports of entry. A cheaper option is flying to Malaga or Gibraltar, and taking the ferry to Morocco from Algeciras (not an option in summer, when immigrants go back home for the holidays).
Get around: Traveling around Morocco is much easier than I expected. The public transportation network is excellent. There are train lines from Fez to Casablanca, and from Casablanca to Marrakech. Public buses are also an option to consider. Another option to move around Morocco are the public taxis. Renting a car is also recommended. Most roads in Morocco are in excellent conditions. Traffic is light.
Money and Costs: the local currency is the Moroccan Dirham (MAD). Euros, American dollars and credit cards are widely accepted throughout the country. A tip of 5-10% is expected. The cost of food, accommodation and transport is cheap.
Length of stay: if you want to visit Morocco's main tourist destinations, you will need from two to three weeks.
Languages/People: Arabic is the official language, but people in certain areas speak a specific berber dialect. French and Spanish are widely understood. Morocco is a country that is developing fast. Its people are quite friendly. You won't be harassed as in some other countries in the region. Bargaining is almost an obligation.
Food: The Moroccan cuisine is not very varied, but it is excellent. Especially if you enjoy spicy meals.
Bellow these lines you will find a short description of Morocco's main tourist attractions. I hope you enjoy my virtual presentations. Have fun.
