Situated at the northern most extreme of Africa, Morocco has long attracted travelers who are lured by tales of its exotic markets, endless desserts, alluring coastline, and rugged mountains. Today it is a country that finds itself cautiously entering the 21st century while remaining loyal to deeply traditional roots. Upon arrival one is immediately captivated by the geographic diversity of Morocco’s landscapes. Whether navigating the heaving bazaar in Fez, winding your way through the narrow and tightly packed back alleys of Marrakech’s medina, surfing the perfect breaks of Essauira’s beaches, or hiking in the Rif mountains above the charming village of Chefchaouan, you will be entranced by amazing Morocco.
