Frequently Asked Questions

Morocco has been the most visited nation in North Africa in recent years, and it is one of the safest countries in the world, with over 10 million tourists in the past few years. Generally seen as a secure destination and the terrorist attacks are thankfully rare in Morocco compared to France, Belgium, and the UK. As a traveler, you are unlikely to be assaulted or seriously hurt because there is a low level of crime, and the Moroccan government has raised infrastructure investment and security measures to attract more visitors and provide more security

There is really no time of year when you wouldn’t enjoy your trip to Morocco; although you should keep in mind that it tends to get a little too crowded with tourists during the winter holidays season. Then it’s up to you to decide what season suits you the best to come to visit, according to your schedule and preferences. The weather in Morocco is more on the mild side during Spring and Autumn (from March to May and from September to November respectively).

For these reasons, the temperatures could be ranging anywhere from 11° to 32°C. Winter usually lasts from December to February, with a relatively low-temperature range (7° to 21°C). You should also expect to see snowfall in Morocco’s mountainous regions. As for Summer (from June to August), temperatures can land anywhere between 19°C and 40°C in the middle of the day.
