January is a great time of year to explore the country of Morocco . Although it is the coldest month of the year, daytime temperatures are very comfortable most days, allowing for great flexibility in your activities. Outdoor adventurers will find January to be a great time to experience the beautiful land of Morocco .
The typical high temperature in Agadir during January is a lovely 20ºC, although things do get chilly at night. Temperatures normally drop to 8ºC so bring some warmer clothes for the evenings. The average sea temperature’s 18ºC, while humidity’s low and rainfall’s usually 37mm over five rainy days.

The best time to visit Morocco is during spring (mid-March to May) or fall (September to October). The weather is warm but pleasant, unlike the cold temperatures and snow of winter, or the scorching heat of summer. The coastal regions can be visited year -round.
January is a calm time for sightseeing in cities like Fes and Marrakech , which tend to get overly busy with tourists during the high season. It’s also the perfect time to break out your camera: conditions for photography are optimal during winter in Morocco, when the air is clear and free of dust.
Long or Mid-sleeve Shirts: During the warmer afternoons, a long or mid-sleeve shirt is all you need on top (go with loose or flowy shirts for a more conservative look). Leggings / Long Underwear: I lived in my leggings in Morocco . They made the chilly nights bearable, and long bus rides a lot more cozy.

Casablanca is the business capital of Morocco, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, with a much more modern and less traditional Moroccan feel. Visitors generally recommend Marrakech over Casablanca for its vibe, colors and smells, history, and tourist-friendly atmosphere (despite some hassles).
While meal prices in Morocco can vary, the average cost of food in Morocco is MAD114 per day. Based on the spending habits of previous travelers, when dining out an average meal in Morocco should cost around MAD46 per person. Breakfast prices are usually a little cheaper than lunch or dinner.
Casablanca in Morocco is often overlooked as a travel destination, since most tourists bypass the city and head on to Marrakech and Fes. But instead of immediately hopping on a train or connecting flight, it’s worth it to spend at least a day or two discovering all the things to do in Casablanca .
