The Backpacker’s Crash Course Guide To Traveling Morocco

Morocco is an incredible country, filled with culturally-rich destinations and breathtaking natural beauty. At the same time, it can be challenging and frustrating. That’s part of what makes Morocco an unforgettable experience. From dodging street vendors as you wind through a bustling souk to the peaceful oases we encountered driving along its pristine coastline, Morocco is a country of contrasts. I believed Morocco to be a well-worn tourist destination, a place where many a traveler before me had paved its cobbled streets to simplify the experience. I’m happy to admit that I was way off.

Despite its proximity to Europe and welcoming millions of travelers every year, Morocco often still felt rugged, raw, and untamed. It challenged me in countless ways as I traipsed throughout the country exploring chaotic hubs like Marrakech to quiet villages like Tafedna. There is an innumerable amount of things to see and do in Morocco for anyone willing to take on its equal number of curveballs and roadblocks. To make things easier, I’ve compiled my top tips for visiting Morocco in this comprehensive guide. From getting around the country to narrowing it down to the top destinations, I’ve got you covered.

Is Morocco Worth Visiting?

Visiting Morocco is an unforgettable experience. The country is home to a vast variety of landscapes, ranging from the sand dunes of the Sahara, the tallest peaks of North Africa, and a pristine coastline with world-class breaks. Morocco is home to cultures found nowhere else in the world, and chatting with an Amazigh nomad around a campfire in the Sahara remains a favorite memory of Morocco. The cuisine is delectable and unique, whether you’re snacking on sea urchins to inhaling gluttonous portions of couscous. Morocco is cultural immersion at its best. While it is often chaotic, a traveler seeking adventure will feel right at home.

Soak in the smells of exotic spices, the cacophonous sounds of the crowded plazas, the colors of the fabrics and ceramics… Experiencing Morocco is simply pure sensory overload. All of these contribute to a truly irreplicable atmosphere unique to Morocco. In other words, yes, Morocco is absolutely worth visiting.

How to Get to Morocco

Morocco is a hugely popular destination thanks to its abundance of cheap flights to-and-from Europe. EasyJet and RyanAir have some obscenely low flight prices to numerous destinations in Morocco. Marrakech, Tangier, Fes, Casablanca, Rabat, Agadir, and Essaouira are all serviced by budget airlines that can get you to Morocco for cheap. If you’re a backpacker looking to stick to a budget, use Skiplagged to find the cheapest flights possible. It’s free to use and I’ve saved thousands of dollars on flights since I started using it religiously.

Traveling to Morocco by ferry is also possible. One can take the ferry from Tarifa to Tangier, or from mainland Spain to a small town called Ceuta. Ceuta is technically part of Spain, but is on the North African continent. A 5-minute drive from the port will find you in Morocco, close to Tangier or Tetouan.

Things To Know Before Going to Morocco

Cultural Norms and Staying Safe in Morocco

Is Morocco safe to visit? While I can gush on and on about how incredible Morocco is, there are many things to consider before visiting. I don’t think anyone leaves Morocco without having at least one or two negative experience. While Morocco is generally safe, it can often push you out of your comfort zone. Push is a gentle word. Catapult is more like it.

Morocco is a conservative country and Islam is widely practiced, with its religious laws intertwining with the general laws of the government. It’s important to dress modestly and respect the customs. Drinking alcohol, for example, can be done in most cities throughout the country. However, drinking in public and public intoxication are unacceptable and can result in being fined or arrested. Non-muslims are not allowed to enter Islamic sites like mosques with the exception of a few big tourist attractions.

Adhering to the religious customs will help you avoid trouble in Morocco. They can also be beneficial for travelers in some ways. For example, theft is heavily frowned upon, and petty theft and pickpocketing are almost a non-issue in Morocco. On the other hand, scamming tourists apparently doesn’t count as theft, so be watchful of that. While traveling in Morocco is generally safe, the overt harassment and hassling by local vendors can be off-putting and leave a bad taste in one’s mouth. For female travelers, this can often escalate to persistent romantic proposals and desperate pleas for your attention. By any means necessary, don’t give a guy your WhatsApp or Instagram because you will never be left alone.

All in all, I think Morocco is a generally safe country to visit. I went to dozens of places throughout the country, from big cities like Casablanca to conservative small towns like Moulay Idriss Zerhoun. It often feels uncomfortable being a foreigner, and in some places, it attracts a lot of attention, but will rarely result in anything beyond a minor nuisance.

Do You Need a Visa to Visit Morocco?

Most visitors to Morocco do not need a visa for stays of up to 90 days. Combined with its affordable cost-of-living and the three month visa-free period, Morocco is a very attractive destination for long-term backpackers and digital nomads. Always be sure to check to confirm the current visa requirements and travel advisories for your country of origin. Additionally, all visitors are required to have a valid passport with at least six months of validity remaining from the date of entry.

What is the Currency in Morocco?

The currency in Morocco is the Moroccan dirham (MAD). The exchange rate is an easy-to-remember 10 MAD to $1 USD, and usually hovers consistently around that rate. There are no shortage of ATMs to withdraw money from throughout Morocco, although they are harder to come by in rural areas. Outside of modern cities like Rabat and Casablanca, Morocco is mostly cash-only, so be sure to have enough on hand to get by.

There are also money exchanges throughout Morocco, although not too common. Most ATMs will charge a small fee for withdrawing money, but with my Charles Schwab card, I get reimbursed for all of those fees so it wasn’t an issue for me. The usual fee for withdrawing money was between 25-35 dirham.

Languages of Morocco

Many languages are spoken in Morocco, with the main ones being Moroccan Arabic, French, and Amazigh. Moroccan Arabic differs significantly from regular Arabic, although most people will be able to communicate with you in French or Arabic. Amongst one another, though, Moroccan Arabic is the go-to language, and you’ll find it hard to keep up even if you are fluent in Arabic.

English is also spoken in Morocco, particularly in tourist areas and among younger generations. However, it’s always a good idea to learn a few basic phrases in Arabic or French to help with communication. It’s actually pretty crazy how good Moroccans are with languages. Anyone working in the tourism industry seems to speak at least five languages with ease, Arabic, Berber, and French, followed by some fluency in English, Spanish, or other languages spoken by frequent travelers.

Getting a SIM Card for Morocco

I typically use an eSIM service while traveling, but with Airalo, you only have one option and it isn’t great. For Morocco, it costs $9.50 for 1 gigabyte. Considering that’s the price you’d pay for 10 gigabytes at the airport, it’s pretty awful. Unfortunately, my phone is locked and I can’t replace my U.S. SIM card, so I had to opt for Airalo, or going without internet altogether. It was surprisingly easy traveling without data as long as I had an offline map downloaded and screenshots of tickets, and addresses of where I needed to go.

One can buy a SIM card at the airport, or from various shops selling SIM cards. Surprisingly, they were cheapest at the airport. I asked around and typically 100 dirham would get you 5 gigabytes, or 2 gigabytes for 50 dirham. If you opt to use Airalo, you can use my code ELIJAH933 to get $3 off your first SIM card. It worked great throughout the country, it was just pricier than what you’d typically pay for a similar data plan.

Travel Insurance For Morocco

Oh, and before you go, make sure to have good travel insurance handy while you’re off adventuring across the world. I use SafetyWing to keep me covered throughout my travels for as low as $45 a month, and their coverage includes Morocco among the 190+ countries that they cover. It’s handy to have travel insurance in Morocco, especially if you plan on hiking in remote areas, high altitudes, and taking to those crazy winding roads with even crazier drivers.

How To Get Around Morocco

A Guide To Traveling Morocco by Train

Train travel in Morocco is limited to the big cities and smaller towns that fall in between those big cities. Marrakech, Casablanca, Rabat, Meknes, Fes, and Tangier are among the cities that are serviced by a rail service. I’ve used the train several times, going from Marrakech to Fes, Fes to Meknes, Meknes to Rabat, and Rabat to Casablanca and Tangier.

It is usually pretty reliable and punctual, and depending on the route, can run frequently throughout the day. It was my transportation mode of choice while traveling between the major cities of Morocco. However, the experience can vary wildly. My longest journey was from Marrakech to Fes, and I found myself cramped in an 8-person cabin occupied by at least ten people plus all of their luggage. My legs could no longer function by the time I was able to stretch them out several hours into the seven-hour journey. Other times, the train was totally fine, with plenty of open seats and compartments to store your bags. It can be a crapshoot, but if comfort is a priority, then I’d recommend booking a first-class ticket. It doesn’t cost much more than a second-class ticket, and at the very least, will guarantee a little more space for a long journey.

You can look up timetables and book tickets on the ONCF website. For certain journeys, you don’t need to book in advance, but I always booked a day or two ahead just in case.

A Guide To Traveling Morocco by Bus

Morocco is well-connected by a network of long-distance buses. The most reliable bus with country-wide service is CTM. For stretches along the central and coastal Morocco, their subdivision Supratours is also great. I preferred Supratours, but they don’t run everywhere. CTM is totally fine and will be your best bet in most cities. Buses in Morocco are affordable and comfortable enough for a journey of a few hours. They usually break the journey up with stops for food, so you never have to sit cramped in a seat for too long.

If you’re traveling with large luggage or a surfboard that you need to store below the bus, there is an extra 5 dirham fee. You’ll have to buy a luggage tag at the bus station before getting on the bus. I’d recommend booking your tickets in advance at least one day before. Their websites don’t charge any additional booking fees and it’ll guarantee you your preferred time slot. I was never asked to print out my ticket and boarding with my ticket on my phone was just fine.

Petit Taxis and Grand Taxis

It took me a little while to understand Morocco’s taxi system. They have two types of taxis: petit taxis and grand taxis.

Grand taxis are like the colectivos of Latin America or the marshrutkas of the former Soviet states. They seat around six people, and each person pays a set fare to the driver. The fare depends on the distance or the popularity of the destination. For example, I paid 7 dirham to get from Tetouan to Martil, two relatively off-the-beaten-path cities so I paid a local price. I paid 25 dirham to get from Chefchaouen to Akchour, a primarily touristic route that most locals wouldn’t take regularly. It’s almost always the cheapest option to get from city to city, but they don’t leave until they’re full, so you might be waiting for a bit.

For intercity travel between smaller towns, you’ll want a grand taxi.

The next type is the petit taxi. These ones are the typical taxis, driving around the cities picking up passengers for a metered fare. There are also set taxi stops where taxi drivers line up. The unusual thing about Morocco, that I actually quite like, is that the taxis often stop to pick up other passengers going the same way. So, even if a taxi has someone in it, try waving it down and they might stop. While most petit taxis are supposed to use the meter, tourists often don’t get this privilege unless they ask for it. Even then, they might refuse. I’m pretty non-confrontational, so if it’s around $2-3 for a ride, I’ll just accept it. I’ve never paid more than $3 for a ride within a city.

Petit taxis are the way to go for traveling within a city.

Renting a Car

Renting a car is surprisingly common in Morocco, considering just how chaotic the cities can be. However, once you get outside of the cities, the roads in Morocco are perfectly fine and not too crowded. I’d only recommend renting a car if you’re traveling along the coast between Agadir and Essaouira. There are tons of small towns and hidden gems that you’ll only be able to access with a car or by hitchhiking. There’s also a shuttle service called Souk to Surf, but is relatively pricy and doesn’t stop at the smaller towns and surf spots.

We rented a car to do that road trip, paying $50 total between two of us. It was pricier than if we had booked in advance, but for a last-minute decision the night before, it was fine. You’ll find cheaper car rentals online and at airports, so book in advance if you’re planning on renting a car.


Hitchhiking is pretty common in some parts of Morocco. The stretch between Essaouira and Agadir is lined with hitchhikers and it’s pretty easy to get a ride in these parts. I wouldn’t recommend it in most parts of the country, as typically Moroccans will charge you for a ride. If you can sort out a price that works for both of you, then that’d be the way to do it.

Where To Stay in Morocco

If you’re looking for an affordable place to stay while traveling through Morocco, hostels are the way to go. With plenty of hostels located throughout the country and lots of fellow travelers staying in them, hostels provide a great atmosphere to mingle and get advice on where to go and what to do so you can make the most out of your visit. Budget-friendly hotels are also easy to find in almost every city, offering a comfy nights rest. And if you’re looking for something more luxurious, beautiful riads are plentiful in cities like Marrakech, making for an unforgettable Moroccan experience without breaking the bank.

The Hostel Scene in Morocco

There are tons of incredible hostels in Morocco. I stayed at over a dozen hostels and was pleasantly surprised by nearly each one. Casablanca is the only city where I’d recommend skipping the hostel life, as they all kind of suck, but they get the job done for cheap.

A backpacker can typically expect to pay between 10-15 USD for a shared hostel dorm. This can vary depending on the popularity of the destination and the quality of the hostel. Hostelworld is a phenomenal resource for comparing hostels, and I typically just pick the highest rated one within a reasonable budget. It hasn’t failed me in Morocco.

essaouira morocco things to do travel guide


A riad is a type of traditional Moroccan house or palace with an interior courtyard or garden. Riads are typically built with thick walls and small windows, which helps keep the interior cool in the hot Moroccan climate.

The word “riad” comes from the Arabic word for garden, and the central courtyard is often the focal point of the house, with rooms and other living spaces surrounding it. Riads often feature decorative tilework, intricate carvings, and other ornate details.

In recent years, many riads in Morocco have been converted into guesthouses, offering visitors a chance to experience the traditional Moroccan way of life and architecture. I mostly stayed at hostels, but some riads have also been converted into hostels. Medina Social Club in Fes, for example, is a stunning place to stay if you want a hostel vibe with the traditional beauty of a Riad.

The Best Places to Visit in Morocco

Morocco is filled with unique destinations, ranging from the culturally and historically-rich medinas of Fes and Marrakech, to the otherworldly natural landscapes of the Atlas Mountains and Merzouga. Morocco truly has something for everyone, but these are my favorite destinations in this diversely beautiful country.

Marrakech – Morocco’s Vibrant Cultural Hub

Marrakech is undoubtedly the tourist hub of Morocco, attracting travelers from all over the world to its vibrant souks and bustling plazas. Roam through the Medina, the historic heart of Marrakech and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wander the maze of narrow streets and souk streets lined with colorful shops and cozy cafes and restaurants. Experience pure sensory overload in Jemaa El Fna Square, filled with musicians, snake charmers, and market stalls. Some of the highlights of Marrakech include the Koutoubia Mosque, the Bahia Palace, Badi Palace, and the Saadian Tombs.

Marrakech wasn’t my favorite city in Morocco, but it is an essential stop for any traveler visiting the country. I’d recommend spending around two days here, although you could spend much longer if you plan on using it as a home base for the several day trips in the area. Imlil, Ouzoud, Ait Benhaddou, and Ouarzazate are some options for those looking to take day trips from Marrakech. Many 2 or 3-day Sahara tours also leave from Marrakech, heading either towards Zagora or Merzouga.

Fes – A Medieval Labyrinth Oozing with Culture

Fes is pure, unadulterated chaos. It can be overwhelming, but once you find your footing, it’s easy to fall in love with the mayhem. I felt like Aladdin in that one scene where he’s escaping the city guards. Fes is truly a labyrinth, but remains my favorite big city in Morocco. It is so unique, and roaming through the medina truly makes you feel like you’ve been transported back into the medieval ages.

If you prioritize one city in Morocco, it has to be Fes.

The Medina of Fes is one of the largest and best-preserved medieval cities in the world. The souks of Fes are some of the oldest and most traditional in Morocco. Here, you’ll find an endless array of goods, from spices and textiles to pottery and leather goods. Make sure to visit the Chouara Tannery, where you can see leather being made using traditional methods.

Hostel Recommendation for Fes: Medina Social Club, Riad Verus


While in Fes, one can also visit Meknes, the nearby village of Moulay Idriss, and the Roman ruins of Volubilis. I spent two nights in Meknes before taking a grand taxi up to Moulay Idriss and spending the night there after visiting Volubilis. Meknes is one of Morocco’s four imperial cities, and is much more local and authentic than Fes. However, it’s also pretty boring. I’d recommend visiting the three as a combined day trip. Take the train from Fes to Meknes, a journey that only takes 30 minutes. Roam through the medina and visit the mausoleum before catching a grand taxi up to Moulay Idriss. Walk or take a taxi to Volubilis, an archaeological site that should take no more than two hours to explore. Head back to Moulay Idriss to catch the sunset from the viewpoint overlooking the city before backtracking your way back to Fes.

Essaouira – A Charming Coastal Gem

Essaouira is a viiibe and a half. This coastal city is located on Morocco’s Atlantic coast about three hours from Marrakech. It’s got a relaxed atmosphere, long strips of beaches, a picturesque historic medina, and a vibrant culture. Essaouira is a must for anyone visiting Morocco.

Essaouira and its surrounding coastline is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Morocco. The Plage d’Essaouira is a popular spot for swimming and sunbathing, while the Plage de Sidi Kaouki is known for its excellent surfing conditions.

Hostel Recommendation for Essaouira: Essaouira Beach Hostel

The Coastal Villages Near Essaouira

When visiting Essaouira, be sure to visit the smaller towns along the coast as well. Some of my favorites include Sidi Kaouki, Tafedna, Imsouane, Taghazout, and Tamraght. Most of them are fishing towns that are also popular among surfers. Sidi Kaouki and Tafedna are close to Essaouira and remain relatively quiet. Imsouane, Taghazout, and Tamraght are more popular among travelers, surfers, and hippies. Visit them all and see which one fits your vibe. It’s easy to end up staying for weeks at one of these laid-back coastal paradises.

Tangier – A Modern and Lively Port City

Tangier is often the gateway for many travelers visiting Morocco. It’s the northernmost point of the country and a short ferry ride away from Spain. Along with Casablanca, I’d say Tangier is the most modern and cosmopolitan city in Morocco. The old town is full of history and culture. The new town is filled with hotels, international restaurants, and plenty of options for a partying traveler.

Tangier didn’t stand out too much, partially because it was at the very end of my six week journey through Morocco and the excitement might have dulled by then. However, it is a well-rounded destination that is a popular and easily accessible entry point into Morocco. If you don’t plan on spending much time in Morocco, Tangier is a good destination to get a taste of what the country has to offer.

Hostel Recommendation for Tangier: Hostel Baytalice

Tetouan – Where Mountains Meet the Sea

If you have time, I’d recommend leaving Tangier and paying a visit to the neighboring city of Tetouan. It’s an hour away from Tangier, and one can take the bus towards Fes and get off at the doorstep of the medina. Tetouan was one of my favorite hidden gems of Morocco, nestled in the mountains while being a short drive away from stunning Mediterranean beaches. From Tetouan, one can also visit M’diq and Martil, two beachside towns with pristine waters and laid-back vibes.

Merzouga – The Sand Dunes of the Sahara

The Sahara Desert is undoubtedly a big reason why many travelers visit Morocco. The town of Merzouga close to the dunes of Erg Chebbi is a tourist-friendly home base to kick off your adventures in the Sahara. I visited Merzouga as part of a three-day excursion from Marrakech, but I know some travelers opt to rent a car and take on the journey themselves. The excursion could have been better, but it stopped at many other destinations that I would otherwise not have been able to visit on my own. Ait Benhaddou, Todhra Gorge, Dades Gorge, and Ouarzazate were some of the places we visited, and I’d recommend visiting them as well.

Chefchaouen – Morocco’s Blue Pearl

Perhaps the biggest surprise of my Morocco adventures was Chefchaouen. This picturesque town is nestled in the Rif Mountains of Northern Morocco. It is best known for its blue-washed buildings and Instagram-worthy alleyways and houses. To be honest, that’s all I expected from Chefchaouen, but it is so much more than an Instagram tourist trap. The stunning mountain views alone make it worth visiting, but the vibe here is also immaculate. It’s a laid-back town with beautiful views everywhere you look. Whether you’re out hiking or spending an entire day lounging on your hostel’s rooftop and smoking hash, a day in Chefchaouen is a day well-spent.

Hostel Recommendation for Chefchaouen: Riad Baraka, Dar Dadicilef

Akchour – Otherworldly Landscapes and Hiking

Close to Chefchaouen, you’ll find the small town of Akchour. The town itself isn’t worth mentioning, but the nearby natural beauty is why Akchour is the most popular day trip from Chefchaouen. It’s home to plenty of hiking trails, with the most popular ones being the viewpoints of God’s Bridge, and the hike along the river lined with waterfalls and natural pools to dive into. Grand taxis leave from Chefchaouen once they’re full, so assembly a hiking crew and get out and explore.

Rabat – The Well-Rounded Capital City

I had very little expectations for Rabat. Only one hostel showed up on Hostelworld, and few travelers I spoke to had actually visited, so I knew nothing about Morocco’s capital. Needless to say, I’m glad I decided to go and see for myself what Rabat was all about.

Rabat is perhaps the most well-rounded destination in Morocco. It is both historic and modern, and is home to gorgeous monuments and tranquil beaches. I spent a week in Rabat, and could have spent several more. For travelers on a short-term trip, I can see why Rabat often gets overlooked. It doesn’t particularly excel at anything. You won’t find beaches as nice as down south, and the medina is significantly smaller than Fes’ or Marrakech’s, but Rabat just has everything. The vibe is great, and I quickly settled into a routine. It also helps that there’s a much more international community living in Rabat, so you’re a lot less likely to get hassled or harassed as a foreigner.

My hostel also made me feel immediately at home and truly made my time in Rabat special. If you stop by Rabat, be sure to stay at Hostel Kayezer. It’s a humble hostel, but the location is perfect and Zakariya, Simou and Bruno Mars are nothing short of angels.

Casablanca – A Vibrant Cosmopolitan City with Great Nightlife

Casablanca is the largest city in Morocco, and the most cosmopolitan by far. It is a polarizing city that travelers will either hate or love. The thing with Casablanca is to approach it differently than you have other cities in Morocco. It doesn’t have as much as historic charm as Fes and it’s nowhere near the peaceful coastal town of Essaouira.

Those aren’t Casablanca’s strengths. Casablanca excels at nightlife, cuisine, and having a much more international crowd than other cities. Casablanca is home to tons of expats from all over the world. It’s the most diverse city in Morocco, and I don’t think any other city really comes close. It’s got a wide range of international restaurants and is one of the only places in Morocco where one can party late into the night. The various communities that call Casablanca home adds to its rich heritage, and one can find Senegalese markets and bustling neighborhoods of the African diaspora. If you come to Casablanca in the hopes of finding a charming, romantic seaside city, look elsewhere. Casablanca is for eating good and partying even better.

The one must-do that attracts travelers to Casablanca is the Hassan II Mosque. This mosque is the largest in Africa and is nothing short of opulent. It is stunning from the outside, but pay the $13 entry fee to take a tour of the interior as well. Every aspect of the mosque was carefully thought out and handcrafted by artisans from all over Morocco. It truly feels like a love letter to the country, and is deservedly the most iconic attraction in Morocco.

I go more in-depth with each city and list several smaller towns in my other post covering of Morocco’s top travel destinations.

Nightlife in Morocco

Morocco is far from a nightlife destination. The exceptions are Marrakech, Casablanca, Tangier, and Essaouira. Outside of those cities, you’ll be searching long and hard for a beer to quench your thirst. Most medinas do not sell alcohol, due to their religious significance. To find alcohol, you’ll have to leave the medina. Bars exist in places like Fes and Chefchaouen, but they aren’t particularly lively and lack any atmosphere.

With Islam being the predominant religion, drinking is heavily frowned upon. Even in Casablanca, the nightlife capital of the country, drinking is very much kept under wraps. There are dozens of bars in Casablanca, but you’ll find that each one has black out curtains so that anyone walking by can’t see the transgressions of the sinners inside. The bars in more conservative towns will likely shove all of its patrons down to a seedy basement before serving them drinks.

To keep it short and sweet, it is possible to get drunk in Morocco. I had a great time in Essaouira, home to a couple of beach bars and clubs where one can drink and dance the night away. Aside from that, I just avoided it in general. I had a couple of beers in Chefchaouen and did some bar-hopping in Casablanca. If you want to drink just to drink, it’s totally fine. However, if you want to drink, dance, go out to a big club, and so on, there’s simply not much atmosphere. Unless you plan on spending hundreds of dollars at a fancy club in Marrakech or Casa, your options are limited, and I opted to stay mostly dry during my time in Morocco.

To Sum It Up

If you are looking for an unforgettable bucket list experience, Morocco is the perfect place. Home to a rich culture, stunning landscapes, incredible food, bustling souks and mosques, and friendly people, Morocco truly has it all. Visiting Morocco is a one-of-a-kind experience, regardless of your interests or travel style. My time in Morocco was as rewarding as it was challenging, with each day as unique as the one before.

I won’t say it’s a perfect destination for everyone, but visit the country with an open mind and wide eyes, and you might just fall in love with the country and its diverse peoples and cultures.
