Why now is a perfect moment to travel to Chaouen
We all love the outdoors and now, because of the coronavirus pandemic, even more so. Going for walks, enjoying nature, making the most of the day… these are some of the things that this situation has taught us to appreciate.
We have learned to travel and have fun in a different way and that is something we will take with us for tomorrow. We have learned to keep safe, to take extreme precautions and to look for leisure alternatives that allow us to enjoy our free time while taking care of ourselves and others.
For this reason we suggest that you continue travelling and this time to Chaouen. Anyone who has ever visited this town in the north of Morocco’s Rif mountain range will know that it is precisely the crowds and the tourists who visit it day after day for its beauty and charm that abound. Indeed, many of the comments you hear when you hear about Chaouen are, of course, the strolls through the charming narrow streets of the blue medina. But there is also criticism of the crowds of tourists in its narrow streets, squares, shops, riads… and the touristification that the city is experiencing nowadays, which contrasts with its spirit of a small mountain village.
However, Chaouen has not closed its doors because of the pandemic and nowadays, due to the reduction of mobility and transport, tourism in the country has dropped considerably while awaiting the recovery of the sector.
This could be the perfect opportunity to get to know Chaouen at its best, far from the crowds and noise. Let yourself be surprised by the nature of “the blue pearl” and live an unforgettable experience like never before, discovering exclusive corners for those lovers who are looking for authenticity far from topics and posturing.
It’s a good time to travel to this small village just two hours drive from Tangier to enjoy the tranquility of its harmony, the friendliness of its people and take some amazing pictures!
