Hello! My name is Stefany, I’m the COO of the Latinx Travel Club, a Luxury Travel and Plus Size Fashion Content Creator. I’m a San Francisco Native with roots from El Salvador. I’m a world traveler that hopes to inspire you to visit a place you’ve never been before. I find a lot of inspiration in color, florals and culture.

I traveled to Morocco last year, and it’s made to the top of the list of one my favorite places in the world. There are many different reasons why you should add Morocco to your bucket-list, and I’m sharing a few:

  1. The colorful medinas. What are the medinas? The Medinas are historical downtowns and places that you can look for artisanal goods like: jewelers, paintings, tagine pots, tea sets, and the list goes on. The Medinas have a unique hustle and bustle energy like nothing else I’ve seen in the world. My pro tip: get ready to negotiate on the prices. Think about it like a dance, you want to negotiate down to a price that you feel comfortable with when purchasing the items you like.
  2. A diversity of experiences to explore. There’s really something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing spa escape, a busy unique shopping experience, architectural history, or an escape to the desert, you’ll always be able to find something to do that fits your interests.
  3. The delicious food. Moroccan food is a combination of meats, spices, vegetables and herbs. All meals are tasty and worth trying. My absolute favorite dish is chicken tagine. A Tagine pot is what makes the meals extra tasty. Tagine pots are made out of clay. You can purchase them at the markets and bring one home with you to cook with! You also don’t want to miss out on Moroccan breakfast which usually includes: pancakes, Moroccan mint tea, yogurt, and marinated olives.
  4. The Atlas Mountains. They are absolutely stunning and you don’t have to go far to see them. The Agafay Desert which is only about 45mins away from Marrakesh has beautiful views of the Atlas Mountains.
  5. The beautiful culture. You’ll find that Moroccan culture is probably very different than yours. Take the time to fully immerse yourself in the culture and open your heart to learning something new that you didn’t know before. Some cultural experiences can include: a cooking class, live music, learning about the crafts that are made in Moroccan, or supporting a local tour guide (who I’ve found always want to show you their city).

I would recommend spending at least a week in Morocco. This will give you enough time to explore at least 2 cities and fully get the true Moroccan experience.

Travel Reminder: travel with an open mind and an open heart.
