When is the best time to visit Morocco?
Are you wondering when is the best time to visit Morocco? Each month has its specific charateristics: let’s see them!
JANUARY AND FEBRUARY
Despite being in the desert, Morocco can reach low temperatures, especially in the areas surrounding the Atlantic Mountains. January is the coldest month with the majority of precipitation and a maximum of 10 to 15 degrees. However, most days still remain sunny.
If you travel in the first part of the year you can find very low prices and few tourists, who usually prefer warmer weather.
MARCH AND APRIL.
During March and April, Morocco’s landscape changes into a sea of blooming flowers and verdant greenery. This is the best time of the year to visit the country, especially if you love trekking.
Since it is still considered low season during this period, you will not make efforts in finding cheap hotels and flights, and the main tourist destinations will not be overcome by people.
Ramadan also takes place during this period, which can influence the opening hours of the country’s stores and main attractions.
MAY AND JUNE
May and June are the months when the temperature rises: the maximum ranges between 20 and 30 degrees, and tourism starts to take life.
In May you can see the Gnaoua festival, the festival of music and the holy world in Fes.
JULY AND AUGUST
Although they are not the ideal months to travel to Morocco, July and August should not be excluded. Temperatures reach their highest and you should not be worried about the rain. In fact, these are the driest months of the entire year. It is still possible to escape the heat of Morocco by going to the coastal cities, which, however, will have high costs due to the high season.
SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER
In addition to spring, autumn is also an ideal time for people who love nature and hiking on mountain trails. Temperatures begin to drop but tourism does not: there are still many tourists during this period.
NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER
Late autumn and the first days of winter are still sunny and mild in Morocco. But it is good to be prepared: although temperatures are pleasant during the day, they drop dramatically in the evenings, and you may even see snow on the mountain tops. Between November and December, the Marrakech Film Festival is held annually.
