When is the cheapest time to fly to Morocco (Marrakech)?


Overview

The different seasons in Morocco hold a different appeal depending on your itinerary.

It’s a myth that Morocco is quiet during winter (November to February). Being a warm destination, it’s a great time to travel as the temperatures aren’t too cold and the crowds are minimal. For Canadians, it’s an ideal escape destination from the freezing temperatures.

Morocco is beautiful in spring (mid-March to May) with lush vegetation and the weather is warm and dry.

The summer months of June to August can get quite hot and busy. It also coincides with school holidays, so hotels and resorts get booked up fast. The month of Ramadan or daytime fasting also falls in the summer months and some businesses and transport might be closed. Tourists should avoid drinking, eating or smoking in public during the daytime.

The fall months of September to October are also a popular time to visit both the cities and the coast as the weather is cool and dry. It is an ideal time for hiking.
