When to go?

The ancient city of Marrakech lies in the northwest of the enchanting nation of Morocco. Here you will enjoy year-round sunshine and warm to hot temperatures. In the summer you can enjoy up to 14 hours of daytime and there are plenty of activities allowing you to beat the heat. The Marrakesh Popular Arts Festival is also hosted in July and offers a spectacular array of music, performances, art, and cultural attractions. However, from March to May you can enjoy temperate days in the high 20s, making your strolls around the many markets and mosques much more enjoyable. The summer months are very busy and crowds are also prevalent over the Christmas holidays as tourists escape the cold of their own countries. October offers splendid weather and is great if you are looking for less crowded times. Consider the month of Ramadan as this may affect some of the attractions and other conveniences such as taxis.
