A visit to colourful Chefchaouen is best planned for the months between March and October, winter is unsuitable, when rainfall is often incessant for many consecutive days causing mudslides and broken roads, and short daylight hours limit explorations in the town and surrounding countryside. Due to high altitude the temperature can drop to zero at night and very few accommodations... More

Chefchouen is a welcome break. It has picturesque alleyways and a little riverside walk. You can spend a few days here, possibly taking daytrips to nearby national park and waterfalls. Slightly cooler than Fes and Marrakech.

ABSOLUTELY worth the trek from Tetouan/Tangier/anywhere else in the country. Stay in or near the old city at one of the many hostels, hotels, or riads. Plan to spend time wandering the beautiful streets, haggling in the markets, and enjoying the authentic Moroccan foods at a variety of restaurants. Family friendly but gets very hot during summer months

Just like the title said.. Very nice looking Medina! Tip: walk from the medina to the abandoned mosque on the top of a hill at the east of the city. near the water/river called Ras el Ma.. It takes 20-30 min to walk uphill and u have a beautiful view of chefchaouen as reward :)

Chefchaouen was the nicest stop on our Moroccan trip. It is a very laid back little place, clean and so aesthetically pleasing. The people are less hectic than in the bigger cities and one does not feel constantly harassed. The fact that the city is surrounded by the Rif Mountains makes one feel less claustrophobic and you are able to... More

We spent four days here. This is a very interesting place. It is full of exotic sights and smell. Restaurants are very good and reasonably priced. However, count your change when leaving a restaurant, as most will intentionally short change you. When walking past a shop, avoid eye contact or conversation with the shop keeper, lest he insist you buy... More

For five times i visited Morocco and all the times I've stoped in Chefchaouen. This beautiful Blue City is a must see, must stay, must shop and no one will regret. It's like a beautiful painting to your eyes

No wonder this place has been here for centuries and barely changes! This is a beautiful and unique place where very nice people live. Everyone is always ready to help, and we have only received positive attitude. The surroundings are fantastic and a walk around the city, throughout many of the streets is a must
