Marrakech in August

Hi. We are planning a trip for my mother, who desperately wants to go to Marrakech. We can only go in August. How miserable IS the weather then? Is it possible to go out in the morning and afternoon if we stay in at mid-day? Thanks!

It'll be terribly hot in August.So you need to stay at some place with A/C. You can make half a day journey to Oureka valley which is just one hour and a half drive from Marrakech and is fresh in summer. The other option is to go the beach either in Essaouira or Eljadida

Hope the information is useful

Hello, Mokka!

I stayed in Marrakech mid June for couple of days, and loved every moment, although the thermometer climbed upto 40Celsius (am near 60 years). Ofcourse the hotel was airconditioned to provide good rest. Drinking plenty of water is of help. If you leave your hotel early morning, you will get tired of walking etc in souks all day long, therefore need a place to rest and eat.

Am sure your mother will enjoy herself !
