Where are the words to describe how amazing and full of culture this place is? We can’t believe all of the beauty and richness of culture that was around us. Everyone is incredibly hospitable! Marrakech is a city full of incredible textiles and goods as well as doors that will lead you into the biggest selection of rugs that you've ever seen. It was so easy to just pass certain restaurants or stores up because the doors were so little and easy to miss.
Marrakech is a place that we hope to go back to year after year. Walking around town was one of our favorite things to do. Just be okay with getting lost and you will be fine. Eventually you will find your way back. Marrakech is a place where you can walk around with no agenda and end up coming home with a whole house full of goods... It's a beautiful thing!
Kasbah Bab Ourika - This is an incredible resort in the Ourika Valley at the base of the Atlas Mountains. It is located about a 45 min to an hour drive from Marrakech and everything was on point.
Riad Mena and Beyond - This Riad was located in a quieter neighborhood just a short walk to where all the action in the city was!
Le Riad Berbere - This small riad was very quaint, simple, and quiet. It was a perfect place to lay our heads for our last night in Marrakech.
Nomad Cafe - This was a place that we just couldn't stop coming back to. It is definitely touristy but we clearly didn’t mind...truth is, it was pretty obvious that we were tourists so why try to pretend? ha
La Famille - La Famille was such a dream. Both the food and atmosphere were wonderful.
Le Jardin - This fun spot made us feel like we had just stepped into a jungle. There were plants everywhere and everything was green.
Walk around the Medina and get completely lost in all of the endless shops.
Don't forget to drink as much moroccan mint tea as you possibly can!
If at all possible don't go in the Summer. It gets incredibly hot here which makes for not such a great time.
