A valid passport is required. Please note, identity cards are not accepted.
Although no vaccination is obligatory, the tetanus vaccine is strongly recommended. There is a collective pharmacy at the Ranch and on the trail rides, but it is advisable for each guest to bring their own supplies according to their needs and tolerance to certain medicines.
The Moroccan currency is the Dirham. In July 2009, the exchange rate was 11.25 Dirham to the Euro. Warning, the nearest bank to the Ranch is 20 minutes away, remember to bring money with you or withdraw some en route in order to be able to bring back some souvenirs from the region!
The climate is most pleasant all year round and benefits from its proximity to the ocean. No really high temperatures during the summer (it rarely goes above 35°c) or really low temperatures during the winter! You can go to the beach all year… However, bring warmer clothes for the evening, winter nights can be chilly.
The weather is generally dry but showers can happen: make sure you have the necessary equipment to be able to deal with any situation!
