Meski, the blue source

If you are going to Merzouga desert there is a spot on the way that you should definitely stop and have a look, maybe a bath too.

Meski, the blue source is situated outside Errachidia, on the way to Rissani and Merzouga.

There is the camping and a pool, where you can stay for a few days camping or just going to have a relax afternoon at the pool, with natural water. The camping is nice, with a few shops around were you can buy souvenirs or trade, they like trading.



But there is not only the pool and the camping. Meski is a village, a community, the surroundings of Meski is a big land of vegetable gardens for the people living there. The river, Oued Ziz, crosses the land full of weed, palm trees and a variety of vegetables, depending on the season. Women clean their laundry on the river, donkeys relax peacefully on the river side and men and women work in their land.

In one side is the old village, the Kasbah. Where people used to live, now it’s a beautiful and stunning ruins. I recommend you to go up there and explore the ruins. With a little bit of imagination you will discover the living areas, the kitchens of the houses and even the village meeting place for prays. The views are also incredible, the whole Meski Valley full of gardens and palms trees.

Walk the big extension that will end up in a cliff, where you will enjoy the views of the Meski Valley. To go back to the pool or the camping, walk the side of the ruins. There are nice caves under the old village.

Remember to bring a bottle of water and a little snack to eat on the shade of a palm tree.

Travel to Morocco

If you are planning on traveling to Morocco for the first time you have two options:

-Customize your own trip, you do your own research about the places you want to visit.

-Contact and hire a travel agency that will take care of all your needs and wants.

So, which one is better?

Obviously, that depends on how you are and how much time (and money) you want to spend in this trip.

If you are used to travel, you are good at organizing and you have enough time to visit the most important cities and villages in Morocco you can do it on your own (and you will have fun doing it!). Morocco is an easy country to travel with a lot of train and bus connections. Train and bus are good ways to go all over, but of course, it takes more time. Even though, there are some activities (that you, for sure, must do if you are traveling to Morocco) that should be done through agencies.

On the other hand you can let an agency do the job for you! This is easier and faster! But more expensive. With an agency you will be traveling comfy with nice cars and everything will run as you are expecting (hopefully!). Your guide will explain you anything you need to know. If you have short time and you want to discover Morocco from North to South I will definitely recommend this option!

You can now start thinking about your amazing trip to Morocco!!
