Destination guide

A mix of cultures (and a dash of magic) in North Africa

Situated on the northwestern coast of Africa and across the Strait of Gibraltar from Spain, the dazzling country of Morocco is uniquely influenced by its diverse mix of Berber, Arabian, and European cultures. There are plenty of cities to explore throughout the country, from the buzzing, maze-like medina of Marrakech to the historic Kasbah of the Udayas in the capital city of Rabat. Or you could check out the winding, Instagrammable blue streets of Chefchaouen. Whether you browse Moroccan vacation rentals in one homebase or opt to city hop, you'll fall in love with this mystical, magical country and its people.

Things to do

Shop the Casbah—medinas and more in Marrakech

Many of the ancient medinas and souks in Morocco feel like a museum themselves—or at the very least, a treasure trove. Don't miss the night market in Marrakech's Jemaa el-Fnaa, a bustling public square where you'll find crafts and performers in a uniquely Moroccan setting. During the day, head to the Majorelle Garden, a noted source of inspiration for Yves Saint Laurent, which you can learn about at the nearby Yves Saint Laurent Museum. In other cities, such as Casablanca, Essaouira, and Rabat, you'll find plenty of local galleries and history museums to occupy your days.

Activities

Storming the gateway to Africa in magnificent Morocco

Morocco serves as a gateway to Africa, with plenty of incredible things to do, places to see, and people to meet. From hiking and skiing in the Atlas Mountains to riding camels, desert camping, and hot air ballooning in the Sahara, you'll find magic in every corner of the country. In the cities, you'll dine on local fare like tagine or couscous, and shop the souks for souvenirs. Practice your haggling skills on carpets, spices, and leathers, experience a traditional hammam, or head to the countryside for sweeping, expansive views.

Weather

A dreamy destination throughout the year

While Morocco has plemnty to offer throughout the year, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the summer months in the Sahara can get a little toasty. The cities are less sweltering, but if you're considering Morocco vacation rentals this time of year, you'll definitely want to pack a high-SPF sunscreen. Winters are mild during the day, with temps dropping in the evening, although the High Atlas Mountains often see snow all the way through July. Spring and early fall are great times of year to visit, when the mountains are lush and green, and crowds are smaller.

Natural features

Morocco's geography—as diverse as its people

A land of rocky mountains and sandy shoreline, Morocco's geography is as diverse as its culture. Visit the coastal cities lining the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, or head up into the Atlas Mountains, where it's not uncommon to switch from snow to a sandstorm in a matter of minutes. Ride camels out into the Sahara, and camp among the dunes under a blanket of stars. Drive along the winding roads that lead out into the expansive countryside, and stop to explore the oases that spring up, full of palm trees and streams that run through the sands.
