The weather in Morocco is mild but unpredictable in March, so it is best to pack for all weather conditions and check the weather in advance.
Temperatures begin to rise in April and May across the country, but the weather is still comfortable enough for sightseeing.
Around June, daily temperatures begin to go up, but visiting the desert is still ideal before July brings the scorching heat.
July and August are the hottest months in Morocco, with the daytime temperatures reaching 100°F in southern cities, such as Marrakech. The Sahara desert is not ideal for visiting during these months.

The best time to visit Morocco is in autumn and spring. However, as the country has a diverse geographical landscape, each season has its beauty. In April, May, and September to November, the weather is pleasantly warm across the high grounds of the Atlas Mountains.
These are also ideal months for Morocco tours in the south. Southern cities such as Marrakech and Essaouira are warm and sunny, and temperatures become tolerable to visit the Sahara Desert.

Morocco is a tolerant, yet traditional nation with strong cultural values.Ramadan carries great importance for the nation and is considered a time of spiritual rejuvenation in the Islamic calendar. During this month, Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset – refraining from eating, drinking or smoking during daylight hours.
As a Muslim country, Morocco is a modest nation who deeply respects religion. If you’re planning to go on a holiday to Morocco during Ramadan, please be mindful that many restaurants and shops will either be closed or operating on reduced hours during this time.
It is recommended to pack at least one set of modest clothing that covers both shoulders and knees, to be worn when visiting mosques and other religious complexes. A headscarf for women is necessary when visiting religious complexes in Morocco.
