Tips before travelling to Morocco in the summer
With the summer holidays in full-swing, we want to share with you our list of tips before travelling to Morocco. Travelling in summer is a wonderful option as long as you keep in mind some very important aspects. Morocco, in general, is a warm-weather country, however it divides into three zones with different climates. The northern zone, formed by the Rif mountains and the Mediterranean coast, has mild and pleasant temperatures. In the Atlantic area, with cities like Casablanca or Rabat, you can enjoy the sea breeze. However, if you decide to make your trip through the interior of the country, be prepared for high temperatures and a dry environment. But don’t worry, keeping in mind these simple tips you will enjoy your trip to Morocco both in summer and in the other seasons.
Here is the information you need to travel to Morocco in summer:
1: Protect yourself from the sun. Wear sunscreen to protect your skin. In addition to using sunscreen, use hats, sunglasses and umbrellas. It is recomended to travel with fresh and light clothes and comfortable shoes. Remember that dark colors absorb more light and therefore cause more heat.
2: Stay hydrated. Always carry a bottle of water with you! We all know how important water is, and remember to drink more, at least, 2 litres per day. If you visit the Jamaa el Fna square, enjoy a fresh orange juice to recharge your energies and to hydrate yourself from the inside.
3: Stay in a Riad. Although all the hotels are well conditioned by the air conditioning system, enjoying your stay in Morocco in a traditional house like the Riad will be very pleasant. Its walls are thick and insulate against the heat as well as protect from hot surfaces. Wells, fountains and plants are all used to help make a fresh and pleasant atmosphere.
4: The beautiful Moroccan night. A good option to avoid the hottest hours of the day is to visit the cities at sunset or at night. The sight and scenes that the country offers at this time of day are a real treat for the eye.
5: A bath is always a good idea. Enjoy a bath in Hammam and spend the hours of higher temperature relaxing with an exclusive steambath. Pamper your body with this essential oil, relax completly and explore a deep and rich Moroccan culture.
Remember that those tips for planning vacations are for people that decide to travel to Morocco’s inland areas during the summer. If your destination are the beaches of Morocco, the temperature is always ideal for enjoying its beaches and practicing water sports.
