Moroccan Tourism

 

Morocco is one of the safest and most politically stable countries in North Africa, which has allowed tourism to develop every year more and more. With a strong tourism industry focused on the country’s culture, history, and, cuisine. The Moroccan government decided to create a Ministry of Tourism back in 1985, and by 2013, the country became the most visited in Africa, reaching 10 million visitors from all over the world.

According to the Moroccan minister of tourism, the country has set a goal of reaching up to 20 million tourists to be in the world’s top 10 destinations. The kingdom of Morocco attracts millions of travelers from all over the world due to its climate, geographical variety, and people’s kindness.

Morocco was considered one of the magical destinations with natural treasures, including the middle and high Atlas Mountains, waterfalls, valleys, canyons, oases, and dunes.

Top 10 Best Destinations:

  1. Marrakech
  2. Merzouga (Sahara Desert)
  3. Fes
  4. Chefchaouen
  5. Casablanca
  6. Tanger
  7. Rabat
  8. Meknes
  9. Ouarzazate
  10. Agadir

Accommodations


The kingdom of Morocco provides a wide range of lodging options, including riads (Old Medina houses), world-class luxury hotels, beach resorts, desert and mountain kasbahs, and camps.

There is still plenty of affordable and low-cost options available, although the number of luxurious accommodations has risen in recent years. Booking in advance is suggested during the high season (October, End of December, Easter, and August).

Riad is the most popular place to stay in Morocco. A riad is an old house constructed around a patio with a garden, and the name “riad” refers to the garden, not the building. It is often more elegant and costly, with the option of renting the entire riad.

Weather


Morocco has a huge difference in temperature between the north, the south, the Atlas Mountains, and the Sahara Desert.

The best time to join a Morocco tour and explore the north of Morocco, the imperial cities, the Atlas Mountains, and the Sahara desert is from September to June. Avoid visiting the high Atlas Mountains in December and January, since they are the coldest months of the year, with the chance of snowing.

Those who travel to the south or the desert must avoid June, July, and August because they’re the warmest months, with high temperatures reaching 46 °C during the day and 34 °C at night. If you have summer vacation and don’t want to miss the desert, we recommend riding camels for the sunset or the sunrise and spending only one night in the desert or staying in a hotel with a swimming pool.

Travel Insurance


Traveling without insurance is, to put it bluntly, dangerous. Some home insurance policies protect your belongings while you’re away, and some private medical plans provide coverage while you’re away. Bank and credit cards frequently contain some amount of medical or other insurance, and if you pay for your trip with a major credit card, you may be automatically covered. Otherwise, you should contact a travel insurance firm that specializes in this type of coverage.

A normal travel insurance coverage will typically cover the loss of luggage, tickets, and – up to a certain amount – cash or checks, as well as the cancellation or curtailment of your trip. Most of them charge an additional fee for so-called risky sports, which in Morocco may include mountaineering, skiing, water rafting, or paragliding.

Food & Drinks


Water is a traveler’s worst enemy in many places, particularly in Morocco. According to statistics, one out of every two tourists contracts traveler’s diarrhea within the first 48 hours of their vacation, and 80 percent of infections contracted during the voyage may be traced back to contaminated water.
Traveler’s diarrhea is usually harmless, but diarrhea obtained in a high-risk environment might harbor amoebas, giardia, bacteria, or viruses, all of which can spread serious illnesses.

Antiseptic medicines should be carried with you at all times. Nothing could be simpler: a single tablet in your canteen or a one-liter bottle will make your journey more pleasant. Brush your teeth with them, sip a glass of water in the middle of the night, or even wash your fruits with them. Bottled water may be difficult to come by depending on the area, conditions, or style of travel, and we may not always be able to boil water.

Cards & ATMs


Visa, Mastercard, Cirrus, and Plus credit and debit cards can be used to withdraw cash from ATMs at various banks, but not those outside post offices. Banks may advance cash if you have a Visa or Mastercard. You can receive better trade exchange rates from ATMs than you do at banks when changing money, but your card issuer may levy a transaction fee, which can be rather high. ATM cash withdrawals are subject to a daily limit, which is normally 3000dh.

In premium hotels, restaurants, and tourist stores, you can pay directly with plastic (typically Mastercard, Visa, or American Express, but the latter cannot be used in ATMs).

Health


A visit to a pharmacy for minor health issues is likely to suffice. Moroccan pharmacists are well-trained and can distribute a broad range of medications, including those that are only available by prescription in the United States. If pharmacists believe you require a complete diagnosis, they can refer you to a doctor, who may or may not be on the premises. Consulates and major hotels can also provide addresses of English- and French-speaking physicians.

If you require hospital treatment, contact your consulate as soon as possible and follow their instructions. If you live near a big city, you might be able to get affordable treatment there. State hospitals are usually fine for minor injuries, but a private facility is normally preferred for anything more serious. Repatriation may be the best option depending on your condition.
