Morocco Discovery

A must-do destination…

Labyrinthine medival cities, fast-paced urban centers, long stretches of beach, sprawling desert, lush palm oases, and snowcapped mountains—Morocco discovery  offers enough to draw any traveler looking for a new vacation spot, but what makes it a must-do destination is the famed hospitality extended toward all visitors.

Morocco has long been a crossroads of culture ; With its unique position in the northwest corner of Africa, just a fewmles across the Strait of Gibraltar from Spain, this is a true meeting of Europe and Africa,East and West, old and new.

Moroccan life …

If you’re looking for cultural immersion, the medinas( old,mud-walled cities) of Marrakech and Fez will transport you back a thousand years. Here you can experience Moroccan life as it has been lived for generations, with the muezzin’s call to prayer wafting over the maze  of pedestrian-only alleys and sprawling squares where artisans create famed hand-crafted goods.

The Moroccan desert …

In the Sahara, blue-turbaned desert nomads lead camels through the sand dunes, past palm-lined oases to a series of Bedouin tents. In the Moroccan desert you can see the night sky at its most vivid, while sunrises and sunsets will leave you breathless ;

Along the coast, the idyllic, artsy  towns of Essaouira and Asilah are calm,relaxing spaces where the medina meets the ocean, the fresh catch is the plat du jour, and miles of unclaimed beach await.    The chill town of Taghazoute is the surf capital, where you’re more likely to be greeted with a s’up than salam ‘alaykoom.

Morocco’s four mountains ranges— the Rif, Middle Atlas, High Atlas and Anti-Atlas — provide nature lovers with soaring peaks, jaw-dropping valleys, and gorges, and winding mountain treks to explore by foot or by mule.

The modern comforts…

The more Eurpean cities of Rabat and Casablanca, as well as the ville nouvelles of most major cities, provide modern comforts and maintain an air of the French and Spanish protectorate era with wide boulevards, art deco architecture, sprawling urban gardens, elegant French-syle bistros, and, in he north, the occasional tapas bar. Along the Mediterranean, the Spanish exclaves of Melilla and Ceuta are just a short border crossing away.

With Marrakech leading th way, Morocco has become one of the trendiest vacation destinations for travelers in the know. With hits world-class hospitality and enough sights and  sounds for travelers of all stripes, it’s easy to see why. So come, sip on a refreshing Moroccan mint tea and start exploring this remarkable cornerof Africa.
