To have the best experience when visiting Morocco, particularly for first-timers, plan a trip in the spring or fall, with May and September being the most optimal months. The weather is consistently pleasant, not too cold in the mountains nor too hot in the deserts, and the crowds along the coasts and in the cities are more manageable. Stick to the mountains and the beaches during the heat of the summer months and the Sahara and cities in the winter.

Extending from the Mediterranean Shores and Rif mountains in the north to the Atlantic Shores to the west to the hot desert lands of the Sahara in the south, Morocco is a vast country with a huge range of landscape regions. Cutting across its midline are the Atlas mountains, with the Sahara on one side and the more lush, coastal regions on the other.
There’s more to Marrakech than the circus-like hullabaloo of Jemma el-Fna, persistent hawkers, and the donkey-dodging craziness of the souks. Beyond the walls of the medina (and sometimes even within them), you can find serene escapes that feel a million miles away from the city din – from the wave-lashed Atlantic coast to hidden gardens, galleries and High Atlas valleys.
