The adventure begins: Essaouira
Being in Essaouira is the beginning of any adventure. The fact is that whenever I am in Morocco I feel curious, first because of the Arabian culture, I know it is different but sometimes you want to see everything with your eyes as this is a judge culture for many people. Second, discovering its history, it is so interesting that it makes me travel to the historical places to learn more and more. So, after deciding which city I should visit, Essaouira came into my mind and I decided to visit the Atlantic coast.
As you may know, Morocco is well known for being a country with camels and Arabic dances, but unfortunately Essaouira does not have that; at least it does not have Arabic dancers waiting for you at the beach. So, when you first arrive in Essaouira, you forget about heat and you say welcome to the nice sea breeze. This city is really cultural and dynamic. The colors blue and white mix and make a perfect combination for your eyes, along the colorful things you find in the medina. Even though it seems like a noisy city because of the boats and people in the beach, you may feel surprised when you realize that nights and afternoons can be really quiet and silent. There is no alcohol and drunks, not loud music and parties; it is a paradise for people who enjoy quiet places.
Visiting the Medina is the best way you have to see the culture and handicrafts made by the amazing artists in Essaouira. In this city you are going to find many artists, musicians and people ready to show off their talents. You end talking to them and to people who are selling their stuffs. They talk to you about their experience, lifestyle and any important thing that will make you feel curious and curious. In the end, you just buy something you like thanks to the way they are; Moroccan people are really kind, especially those living in Essaouira.
The Morocco Tours and trips in this city is special. You can find things that are cheaper than in other cities. If you visit the souk you will realize that there are excellent prices, so I highly recommend you to buy things here and take the advantage, nobody is pushing you and it is an excellent place to buy things you like. Many people enjoy this quiet atmosphere that they do not find in any other place –especially big cities like Marrakech or Fez-, even people here are kind, more than other cities. You can take the tea, talk with sellers, eat in the street, visit shops and spend money. This is a colorful and quiet zoco that you need to visit when you get here: do not forget it!
If you need another level of relaxation and going to the beach was not enough, you can try going to the spas that are located in this city. Azurt Art and Spa is a good place if you want to get a good massage; the Centre Beauté Orience is an experience of another world; the Relaxation Marocaine offers a short steam bath; and finally the Centre d’esthétique Bio Argana Spa Essaouira is an amazing place too to relax.
As you can see, the Morocco Tour is an experience that everybody should be able to have. Since going to the beach and admiring the port, spending money in the quiet zoco, going to spas or any other special activities, Essaouira is another level of relaxation. Its blue boats and blue sky will make you forget about any problem and be happy.
