27 Instagram Images of Northern Morocco

In September 2013 I visited northern Morocco for five incredible days. This is the second time I visited Morocco. We based ourselves in Tangier at the Dar Nour Guest House in the Medina, which gave us the ability to explore Tangier and also take day trips to the nearby cities of Tetouan, Chefchaouen, Cave of Hercules and Asilah. 

As many travelers already know, Morocco is a country of opposites: rough, friendly, dirty, elegant, grimy, sophisticated. These Morocco Instagram images will hopefully inspire you to travel to one of my favorite countries in the world. Some love it, some hate it, but it’s all in the eye of the beholder.

    Awesome pics! I have not yet been to Morocco, it’s on my list…do you think it’s safe for female solo travelers?

  2. Thank you! This and all you other reports on Tangier have really solidified our decision to spend two months there December and January (after three months in Malaga). We are living around the world 1-3 months at a time, and Morocco, well Tangier in particular, sounds wonderful. Thanks for your help. Right now we are in Cusco, Peru, after three months in Cuenca, Ecuador and six months in Pallanza, Italy. I’m looking forward to browsing all the rest of your great blog. You really do a great job of giving us a feel for a place.
