January and February
Despite being within the desert, Morocco can get a touch cold, especially within the chain of mountains. January is that the wettest and coldest month, with highs around 50 to 60 degrees, but most days are sunny and mild.
The best part about traveling to Morocco at the start of the year is that you just will have the country's main attractions all to yourself. Luxury Riads in Marrakech cut their prices and you will not need to bargain too hard to urge an excellent deal on a glamping trip to the Sahara Desert.
March and April
In March and April, the Moroccan landscape transforms into a sea of blooming flowers and lush vegetation. It's the best time of year to visit if you want to explore the country's spectacular trails.
One of the biggest highlights of the visit during the month of March is the International Festival of Nomads. Scheduled for four days every March, this festival brings together music, theatre, storytelling, and art.
May and June are when things really heat up. Temperatures reach a maximum of 70 to 90 and tourism in Morocco is starting to increase.
If you want to get your first choice of hotel or stay in one of the riads you've seen all over Instagram, you'll need to book in advance.
In May, you can attend the Gnaoua and Sacred World Music festivals. The Gnauoua festival is an art, music, and culture in the city of Essaouira, while the Sacred World festival is held in Fez and promotes spirituality and tolerance through music.
July and August
The best time to travel to Morocco
July and August are the least ideal months to travel to Morocco, but they shouldn't be ruled out. As long as temperatures are at their peak, there's not a rain cloud in sight.
It's the perfect excuse to spend the afternoon cooling off in the pool.
If you want to escape the heat, head to Morocco's coastal destinations or venture into the cooler Atlas Mountains. You will also need to book your trip in advance to avoid high season prices.
Another thing to keep in mind is Ramadan. It's an exciting time of year to experience Moroccan culture and traditions, but the Muslim holiday will affect the opening hours of museums, historic sites and other attractions.
