Weather General Overview For Morocco

Morocco's interior is at its best in spring (March to May), when the country is lush and green, followed by autumn (September to November), when the heat of summer has eased. At other times, do not underestimate the heat in summer and the cold in the winter, particularly in the High Atlas Mountains, where snowcapped peaks persist from November to July.

The resort Essaouira is best from April to October with air temperatures between 25-30 degrees cooled by the constant Atlantic breeze.

The region of Dakhla can be visited all year around but the summer temperatures can be extreme, so the best time to travel here is from September to May.


The official currency is the Moroccan Dirham. Moroccan dirhams can only be obtained in Morocco. The most convenient way to obtain dirhams is through an ATM, where official rates automatically apply, but daily withdrawal limits can seem low for customers paying cash for rugs in the souks. Guichets automatiques (ATMs) are now a common sight across Morocco and many accept Visa, MasterCard, Electron, Cirrus, Maestro and InterBank systems. Major credit cards are widely accepted in the main tourist centres, although their use often attracts a surcharge of around 5% from Moroccan businesses. American Express, Visa and Thomas Cook travellers cheques are widely accepted for exchange by banks.
