Your packing for Morocco depends entirely on what you want to do during your trip and which parts of the country you want to visit, as temperatures in Morocco vary enormously in the mountains, desert and cities of Morocco. Another factor to take into account is the cultural difference in Morocco, where men and women are expected to dress differently, which can also mean that a certain conservatism may come into play.

Packing for the Summers

Packing for the Summers

Morocco is in arid climatic zones where the weather is dry and lacks moisture. The summers can be very hot and dry, but after sunset the weather changes drastically and evenings can be quite chilly. It is therefore advisable to bring airy, breathable and loose clothing for the day, a hat or cap to protect yourself from the scorching sun and slightly warm clothing for the evening to shield against chilly outside temperatures. If you plan to spend the day exploring the markets of Marrakech and visiting the city's attractions, you are likely to get drenched in sweat, and if your day involves traveling from one area to another, such as spending the day in the city and moving to the desert or nearby mountains in the evening, it is advisable to bring a light, warm jacket along.

Spring is by far the best time to visit Morocco because the temperatures are moderate and comfortable. The sun is relatively cooler during the day and the evenings are even cooler. You can bring a medium-heavy jacket and thicker clothes in spring compared to summer. Although it is still warm during the day, loose-fitting clothing is always a better choice and with the activities and walking you might do during the day, you may warm up if you decide to wear something thicker in the morning before going out to explore during the day, as spring mornings are cooler, but as the day sets in, it gets warmer.  Also, remember to bring your swimsuits because the riads in Morocco have amazing pools and hammams. But just to be respectful of the local culture try to bring bathing suits that are a little bit more covered. 
 

The Winters in Morocco

If you plan to visit the mountains of Morocco during the winter, be prepared to face the biting cold and strong winds. You will want to bring your heaviest jacket for protection from the cold winters. Another important thing is to make sure you have a windproof jacket, especially if you want to go to the coast and the desert, as the winds are harsh and violent during the winters. In addition, the winter months, especially from November to March, are also the wettest months in Morocco. It is therefore advisable to bring an umbrella or raincoat to make sure you are prepared for a sudden downpour.   
 

In addition to the tips and suggestions above, you will also want to consider the norms and values of the local culture during your stay in Morocco. This is particularly recommended for women as the local culture is quite conservative. Female travelers are not expected to cover their heads but be sure to wear a headscarf when visiting places of worship or mosques. Avoid overly tight clothing and opt for looser clothing to avoid unnecessary attention. Also try to avoid short clothes both up and down. Nevertheless, don't forget to make the most of your stay in Morocco and to experience the best of this beautiful and magnificent destination.
