An economic destination
If your goal is to travel to places where you can enjoy all kinds of activities, see monuments and get to know a new culture without suffering your pocket; stop searching. Morocco is a cheap destination, where accommodation and food will have more than reasonable prices.
Friendly and open people
Being one of the Arab countries closest to the West and where our language is most studied makes it much easier to travel through Morocco and interact with its people. In general, you will meet with simple, friendly people and very easily to communicate.
A culture to discover
Despite the relative short distance that separates us, culturally Morocco and Spain are somewhat further away, even with many points in common. It is, therefore, a close place in which to enjoy the opportunity to know a different culture.
In Morocco you will find an exotic and varied gastronomic offer, where spices make each bite an experience. In addition, since the prices are affordable, you can afford to try a bit of everything. There are classics that you cannot miss, such as the Tagine, the couscous or its famous sweets. Oh, and to drink, you have to choose tea, around which they have developed a whole ritual.
A country of colours and contrasts
We speak of a place where mountain areas mix, which can become very cold with other more arid and even desert. Of course, in general, in summer it is not advisable to travel. Therefore, it is recommended to choose the spring or autumn to visit the country. Nevertheless, whenever you go you will be captivated by its colours, foods, people, houses, sand… Everything is part of the Moroccan identity.
The contrast is also seen in the landscapes that you can contemplate: that mountain and desert are complemented by idyllic coastal towns. All this is what you can find if you decide to go to Morocco.
Bathed by the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, Morocco presents the duality of being the door of Africa to the Sahara and to the sea.
It has thousands of kilometres of coastline that offer many options for tourists and surfers who come to them. The golden sand and its clear waters form a paradisiacal vision and the opportunity to enjoy moments of relaxation in an unforgettable atmosphere.
The imperial cities
In Morocco we find four cities called imperial because of the political and cultural importance they have had for the country, as well as for having been at some point the capital of Morocco. These are Rabat, Fez, Marrakech and Meknes. Of these, Marrakech is undoubtedly its main tourist point and Rabat is known to be the current capital.
To them we must add by importance Casablanca, located less than 100 kilometres from Rabat and that stands out for combining modernity and tradition.
There are numerous tourist routes that join them and allow you to visit all four. In all of them you will see narrow streets, traditional buildings, mosques and medinas in which to buy everything and put into practice the noble act of bargaining, almost an art there.
