The best time to visit Morocco is during spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). Although, these are the shoulder seasons the climate paves a great way to enjoy every bit of diverse landscape this country has to offer. Many factors influence the weather in Morocco. The northern and north-western side experiences a Mediterranean climate while the south and southeastern part have a continental climate because of the Sahara desert. Between these, there is also the High Atlas mountain range which brings in a different environment altogether. The peak season of Morocco is summer (June to August) when the whole country enters a holiday mood. With school holidays and local people who return home for their annual holiday, the place is quite packed, and everything (especially hotels with pools) will book quickly. Winter (December to February) is a relatively low season in Morocco. The crowds are minimal because of the myth that everything shuts down during this season.
