When is it good to go to Morocco?

Although Moroccan climate is generally hot and dry, there is a such a varied climate (snow capped peaks to scorching desert dunes) that there is always somewhere to go at any time of year; however, July and August can be very hot inland away from the mountains. During Ramadan travelling can be more complicated and service may not be as good when people are hungry and thirsty but, in our experience, it is an interesting time to visit.

Even in the depths of winter the sun tends to produce very pleasant warmth during the middle of the day.  However, you should note that there can be a great contrast between day and night temperatures.

The Atlantic coastal region, including Essaouira, has the most consistently warm temperatures throughout the year, without the summer peaks.  Marrakech, Fez and Ouarzazate, being inland, have a hotter summer.  Taroudant in the south is the warmest place in between October and April.  Ouarzazate and the deep desert are best visited in the spring and autumn to avoid extremes.

In the lowlands rainfall totals are about a third of the driest parts of the UK.  We can virtually guarantee no rain in May-Sept in the lowlands. When it does rain, people are so overjoyed to see it, that it is quite a novelty for those of us from wetter climes.  Rain tends to be heavy and shortlasting rather than drizzle.
