All seasons of the year are pleasant for a visit to Morocco. Although it is recommended to travel in spring and autumn, the months between April and June and during the months of September and October, when the heat is not so strong is ideal. In this period of spring and autumn, the temperatures are very pleasant and are perfect for an excellent appreciation of the cities. In addition, if one wants to make excursions to the mountains, the months of May and September are without a doubt the best months of the year. While the months of July and August, during the summer period, can be ideal for a vacation at the beach on the coast, not for visiting inland places. Indeed, in this period, the heat that one can find there is stifling.
