Cindi LaRaia, owner of Dive and Africa Discovery, recently went to Morocco in Sept. 2017 and had these wonderful words to say about her experience.

“The people are most warm and welcoming! Often asking where you are from and offering a ‘very big welcome’.”

“I was not sure what to expect. I was most pleasantly surprised at the friendliness of the merchants! The men were respectful and if I spent a lot of time looking and bartering, and leaving, they all bowed and said thank you!”

“As a single woman travelling alone, I felt very comfortable. The people of Morocco were extremely friendly, helpful, kind, and genuine!”
