When to go
All year round but the best seasons are spring and autumn to avoid the strong heat of the summer season. The first time we visited Morocco in October and the weather was perfect, the second time in December and the weather was perfect as well but a bit cold during the early morning and at night.
We never leave without an insurance since it’s the most important thing when traveling. We got our comprehensive protection with Worldnomads.
Our favorite is Lonely Planet. Check the deals and get your guide book!
