CLIMATE

Morocco has several climatic zones, yet it is sunny for most of the year. Generally, the north has a Mediterranean climate, whereas it is sub-tropical in the south. Morocco is a destination where you could start the day with a walk around an oasis, then go skiing in the mountains, and end the day with a dive in the ocean.

Atlas Mountains:

The weather is unpredictable in the Atlas Mountains and obviously it depends on the elevation. The High Atlas Mountains are usually cold in the winter (November to March) and cool with sun in the summer. The Middle Atlas Mountains get a lot of rainfall, especially from November to February. Summer temperatures average around 72-78 Fahrenheit (25 C) and winter temperatures can get as low as -4 Fahrenheit (-20 C).

Sahara Desert:

Temperatures average around 115 Fahrenheit (45 C) during the summer and it's obviously dry. Nights in the desert do get much colder, however. The desert is more enjoyable in the winter, late fall, and early spring.

Atlantic Coast:

Mostly the weather is perfect in the summer, cooler than the interior, as it receives a coastal breeze.

TIME
Morocco follows GMT.

ELECTRICITY
Morocco operates on 220V. Plugs are some of the European two-pic variety, so an adapter will be very useful.

MONEY
Most major credit cards are accepted in the larger towns. ATMs are widely available in cities and most of the main towns. There is no limit on the amount of cash you can bring in to the country, but it‘s very difficult to exchange travelers’ cheques. The Moroccan Dirham is non-convertible, and you can’t take Moroccan currency out of the country.

TOLIETS
It's a good idea to carry tissues as toilet paper is not always available in public restrooms. If there is toilet attendant, a small tip is expected (2 DH).

TELEPHONING ABROAD
The least expensive method of calling outside Morocco is by phone card purchased at Tobacco or newspaper vendor. Some cell phones may not work in Morocco, depending on the type of phone. Please check with your service provider.

GREETINGS
Within and between the sexes, the two-cheek air kiss is customary when greeting and saying good-bye and is likely the closest thing to a public display of affection you will observe between a Moroccan man and woman. While this is a moderate Islamic society, it's best to adhere to modesty in public. In rural, more conservative areas, you will only see such greetings among people of the same sex.

SIGHTSEEING
With the exception of the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca and the Tin Mal Mosque in the High Atlas, non-Muslims may not enter mosques.

Except at the beach, tank tops and shorts are not widely acceptable for either sex anywhere in Morocco, even in the hottest weather. Both women and men should cover up their arms and legs if they want better service and a friendly rapport with Moroccans; in the countryside, locals consider T-shirts and shorts to be the same as underwear, and wearing such will increase the potential for harassment, especially for women. Aside from this, casual clothing is quite acceptable for tourists.
