Morocco is a unique destination and entices visitors with warm weather, vibrant color, mesmerizing aromas, and mouthwatering cuisine.
Before the Covid-19 pandemic, we recommended travelers to Morocco book their trip approximately 10 months in advance, especially if traveling during the high or holiday season. If you would like to travel during the high season we now recommend booking your trip between 12 and 14 months in advance to account for the limited accommodations and activities. By booking ahead you give yourself the best opportunity to secure your preferred accommodations, tours, and guides.
Last-minute trip planning is possible and your Zicasso travel specialist can ensure an exceptional vacation experience.

Morocco is open to travelers and you can book your trip for travel in 2021 or 2022. Any visit to a new country can present new questions and travel after Covid-19 may have changed previously well-known answers.
“Do I have to wear a mask during private transfers?” “Is Djemaa El Fna Square open?” “Will I be able to visit Erg Chebbi or witness the Chouara Tannery ?” “How will I travel from Rabat to Chefchaouen?” “Are the beaches open?” “Do I need a negative Covid-19 test before returning home and how can I get one?” Working with a travel specialist can provide answers to important questions and more before you book your trip. A travel specialist can also help handle any emergency that may arise during your trip — from booking a specific tour to helping with an unannounced flight change.

The best time to visit Morocco is from mid-March to May and again from October to November. These months represent the best weather because spring and autumn have mild climates, but can have larger crowds.
February is also a great month to travel to Morocco because it is the low travel season there. The weather is cold in the Sahara, but it is one of the few times of the year you can experience snow on the mountains. February also sees fewer tourists, giving you a more authentic travel experience.
