Morocco: Plan Your Trip!

by Wendy Perrin | March 7, 2017

Your Trip to Morocco Begins Here

Morocco has shot up the travel charts, becoming the exotic-yet-doable-within-9-days destination of the moment. It’s got a direct flight from the U.S., over-the-top hotels that far exceed a luxury traveler’s standards, and ancient cities that have undergone rapid transformations into cosmopolitan metropolises. But that’s not to say that travel in Morocco is easily D.I.Y.-ed.  Logistics are tricky:  Domestic air routes are limited, and the Sahara isn’t a place you navigate by yourself.  Logistics are especially tricky if, like so many travelers, you want to combine Morocco with nearby Spain and Portugal. Tell us about the trip you have in mind, and we can suggest the right fixer to make your sightseeing exponentially more efficient (while still allowing time for you to lose yourself in the medina), lead you to the most colorful secret souks and boutiques, and/or introduce you to traditional local families in the countryside.

Pricing tip: While Morocco can be inexpensive if you free-wheel it on your own, I’ve been there seven times, and I am here to tell you that when you free-wheel it, a hundred things can go wrong.  Morocco is not inexpensive when you want to avoid those pitfalls by using the savviest local fixers.  Be prepared to spend a minimum of $800 per day for a trip for two that uses 4-star hotels and includes WOW-level experiences (and double that during the peak Christmas/New Year’s period).
