Come for the country, stay for the people

Morocco is a top touristic destination worldwide for many people attracted by its mesmerizing, diverse landscape, year-long sunny weather, colorful cities, charming streets, and buzzing local markets. But ask anyone who comes to visit Morocco for its beauty; what sticks with them, in the end, is the people of this country.

Meet the Moroccans

Moroccans are one of the highlights of the country. If you are visiting Morocco, whether alone or with a group, one of the best things to do is to mingle with the people and get to know them, learn about their lifestyle, and share moments to appreciate how they lead their lives. While in Morocco, some of the interactions you can get will surely make your trip memorable and leave you wanting more.

Moroccan hospitality

Many tourists who come to the country fall in love with the people and choose to give up everything to stay and live in Morocco, and they cannot be blamed for that. Moroccans are modest, down-to-earth, hospitable, caring, and loving people, with a smile on their faces even in rough times, always willing to help, and always welcoming and ready to share whatever they have with strangers. It is genuinely a fascinating sense of community that you can find even in the roughest areas of the country. From big cities to tiny remote villages in the mountains or while in a Morocco Sahara desert tour desert, wherever you are in Morocco, people would welcome you as one of their own, opening their houses to you and sharing their food, even if it is as simple as a cup of mint tea (although they are generous with sugar), and treating you with such respect and kindness that will have you forge long-lasting friendships with these amazing people.

Moroccans will help, even if they don’t speak your language.

You might find yourself lost and not knowing your bearings in many instances. Do not hesitate to ask one of the locals for directions; people will generally try to do their best to help you get where you want, some even offering to take you there personally. It is even more fascinating that many Moroccans will help you even though they cannot understand your language. The country is a major touristic destination, and that means Moroccans are used to hearing different languages and dealing with people from various nationalities. As a result, Moroccans will usually find a way to communicate with you even though they might not speak your language fluently.

Try being a Moroccan family guest; you will not regret it.

One of the best ways to get to know the people in this gorgeous country is to stay with a Moroccan family. If you have the chance to be hosted by a Moroccan family during your stay, do not hesitate to do it. The experience you will get out of it will enrich so many levels. Hospitality is one of the main traits of Moroccan families and Moroccans in general. If you stay with a family in Morocco, you will feel like these people have known you. You won’t feel estranged. On the contrary, you will be welcome in their homes, given the best place to stay, treated to delicious Moroccan dishes nowhere else to be found, and most importantly, they will make sure you are comfortable and at ease during your stay.
