Morocco in late fall

My husband and I will be travelling with our college age son for about 10 days in Morocco in late November/early December.  It will be our first visit there and I would welcome any advice about places to see or avoid or any general tips.

Thanks in advance.

RE: Morocco in late fall ()

Hi there - 

We have been to Morocco several times and loved it.  10 days is not long...here are some options:

1) Marrakesh

2) The Atlas Mountains near Marrakesh (there are amazing hotels)

3) The desert - though you will have to dedicate 10+ hours each way so you may choose to skip...

4) Essaouira - it's on the coast - used to be an old fishing village.  We went horseback riding on the beach and loved it

5) Fez

6) the Blue City - or chefchaouen

you can also go see the med coast - but it may be cooler in the winter.  I'm happy to chat, as I've been multiple times about transportation / hotels, etc.  Feel free to give me a call at 415 279 7001 (or text and we can set up a time).  

It is one of my favorite places on earth.

My wife and I spent 3 weeks travelling there last year in October. The highlights of our trip were visits to Chefchaouen, Fez, Essaouira, and Rabat. We would not spend time in Casablanca (noisy and dirty) or Marrakesh (if you went to Fez). Be sure to drink the freshly squeezed (right in front of you) orange juice sold at many fruit stands whenever you have a chance. And be aware that you will approached many times to give money to beggars and asked to buy items of all kinds from street sellers. Be sure to read one or two guide books before you go to give you some background on the country, the history and the people as well as places to visit. You will have your eyes opened to a fascinating, diverse and ancient civilization.
