No visa is necessary to enter Morocco from the USA or Europe for 3 months. You will be asked to present your passport at Immigration upon entering Morocco and will be given a stamp valid for 3 months of tourism in Morocco.
You should bring a little cash for shopping or items purchased along the way. You can change USD or EUR at the airport for the local currency, Moroccan Dirhams. Please make sure to carry the local currency, as local shops and vendors will not accept foreign money.
Morocco is a modern Muslim country and while it is not necessary to cover your head, it is a wise choice to dress in conservative clothing during public outings. Consider covering the shoulders and legs when outside the hotel. At this time of year, Marrakech can be hot during the day, so dressing in loose and light fabrics will leave you feeling much more comfortable than in tight and restrictive clothing.
Make sure to pack plenty of yoga clothes! Bring casual stuff for the day trips and outings. We won't go anywhere that requires formal clothes. Pack a bathing suit and some things for the beach, a good pair of sneakers for walking, and a light jacket.
We'll teach you some simple Arabic phrases at the welcome dinner, such as how to say "thank you" and "please" and other useful things. Come prepared to enjoy the best of Morocco!
