It’s a popular belief that is not a good idea to spend your Summer Holidays in Morocco, due to its latitude and consequently its high temperatures. Nothing could be further from the truth; You can perfectly organize a vacation in Morocco and enjoy the country, its gastronomy, its culture and its beaches if everything is well organized.
The first advantage we have in summer is that the days are longer. This allows us to cherish the most part of the time, and enjoy the sunrises or sunsets without being exposed to the low winter temperatures. In recent years, there has been an increase in luxury hotels with magnificent facilities, allowing us to spend that hours when temperature is higher, enjoying the pools or the local beaches.
If you want to visit areas such as Aït Ben Haddou or the desert, you can do it perfectly during the summer, always choosing well your itinerary, and preparing your trip in advance. The least recommended months to enter the desert are July and August, but an activity that can be done then is walking with the dromedaries at sunset after spending the hot hours enjoying the facilities of the hotels.
Aït Ben Haddou is located at 1,200 meters of altitude, allowing us to walk and visit the Ksar in the morning and do it again from 6 in the afternoon. It is one of the most unknown areas of Morocco, so we can let ourselves enjoy the area without the overcrowding of other cities in the country such as Marrakech or Fez.
