Morocco is a land of contrasts. Bathed to the north by the waters of the Mediterranean, to the west by those of the Atlantic Ocean, it is also criss-crossed by the Rif and Atlas mountains and is subject to all sorts of climatic influences.
The coastal regions are popular with the sun. Throughout the year, it pours its rays and you can enjoy its benefits whatever the season is. A little further inland, the climate abandons the Mediterranean mildness and becomes continental. In the south, the country opens onto the immensity of the Sahara. It is in spring and autumn that visitors must venture there though occasional sandstorm may happen in April.
There are 25 airports in Morocco and the busiest ones are Casablanca Mohammed V International Airport (CMN), Marrakech Menara Airport (RAK) and Agadir Al Massira Airport (AGA). Morocco’s national carrier is Royal Air Maroc, whose headquarter is in Casablanca. Other airlines that fly to Morocco include Air France, British Airways, KLM, Lufthansa, Tunisair, and Turkish Airlines etc
The Moroccan dirham (MAD) is the national currency in Morocco. Like most countries in the world, travellers can pay by cash or credit card.
