Morocco Information

Moroccan holidays are often described as charming, lovely, nostalgic—hypnotic. There is such a stunning blend of old and the new, of the fine beaches and the gentle mountains, of the cosmopolitan lifestyle and the quaint villages and countryside, and of fun and enrichment. 

Something Refreshing

Moroccan cities and towns are not only charming but also stand-outs, playing by their own strengths. There is a good marriage between the old and new in Casablanca and Marrakesh. Its capital,Rabat, and its counterpart in the south, Quarzazate, are filled with ancient architecture that speak so much of the country’s long lineage and history, some of which date back to the twelfth century. Medina gives off the more youthful, casual vibe, while the rugged picturesque mountains make themselves known along Tetouan, which is also home to some of the most fantastic Moroccan beaches. The Casa Barata, Grottoes d'Hercules, Mnar Park, and Café Hafa make up for a memorable tour along Tangier.

Aquatic lovers can pick between the vast open spaces and deep blue calm waters along the Mediterranean coast or the unspoiled natural sceneries and thrilling waves in the Atlantic. Adventurers can also take the unique journey across the deserts onboard the Oriental Desert Express.

Take Home Morocco with You

Plenty of tourists never leave the country without dropping by the festive shops and buzzing markets filled with crates of herbs, spices, and other worthy souvenirs for the loved ones back home. Moroccan decors such as classic Berber carpets, luxurious tea sets, and intricate inlaid wood are usually worth the extra pay on the plane. The costumes for belly dancing, leather, silver jewelry pieces, and leather wallets are fantastic for carry-on suitcases. The tagine is a great addition to the kitchen, a unique substitute to the Crock-Pot, and if you are looking for something very unique, head to Rissani and bring some fossils back.
