TOURIST Click for Agadir Al Massira Forecast
The season for package tours is from October until April and the destination is the modern seaside resort Agadir, offering a mild sea climate and a sandy beach stretching for miles. For the event-seeking individual Agadir will certainly look too "touristic" after a couple of days, but the town serves as an excellent base for excursions to the Atlas mountains and to the Sahara desert.

FIRST TIME Click for Tanger Forecast
Go by a regular flight to Casablanca or with a package tour to Agadir. The most famous places like Marrakech, Fès, Tanger, Merzouga, Zagora, Todra et cetera should perhaps be visited under guidance the first time. With a little experience of the country - and if the supply of money doesn't make a problem - then the rented car is the ideal vehicle to explore Morocco.

ON YOUR OWN Click for Essaouira Forecast
Trains, buses, grand-taxi's, cycling - all the options exist to travel round at a small cost. Best to start at Málaga and take the ferry to Melilla or bus and boat via Algeciras to Tanger or Ceuta. Agadir is a good starting point for the southern area of the country.
  Please consider that the attendance in the tourist areas of Morocco is exquisite from many individuals, who look upon you as a source of income rather than as a traveller. Because of that it's frequently trying to travel alone.

BEEN THERE Click for Rabat-Sale Forecast
A prerequisite for the total experience of Morocco is that you enjoy the respect of the people. Dress yourself well-groomed and not too exposed. Learn a few phrases of Arabic and speak French on other occasions. Be kind and relaxed, tell storys, jokes and always keep a smile on your face. Be tough when it comes to business, but generous with gratuity. Respect the religion, be careful in political debates and - if you're a woman - travel preferably in company with a man (unless you don't mind to endure harassments by persons who don´t respect women travelling on their own).
