Family Fun

Many people associate Morocco as a holiday destination more suited to adults; stays in the quirky little riads of Marrakech, exploring the labyrinthine streets of the historic Medina, and romantic candlelit dinners – all of which is true, but it is also an exciting destination for all the family and Mint Morocco has handpicked some beautiful properties which are just perfect for kids and grown-ups too! Moroccans are traditionally hospitable and genuinely love children, so they are always welcome everywhere!

TinyTravellers_5We have chosen a selection of magnificent catered villas with private swimming pools surrounded by large flower-filled gardens for the kids to run around freely. Many of our properties are also equipped with cots, highchairs and all the other necessities you would need on a family break; we also offer hotels with interconnecting rooms, babysitting services, and plenty of activities to keep the little ones entertained. So all you have to do is sit back and relax in the sunshine by the pool, in the knowledge that your children are having fun!

Take the kids on camel rides in the palm groves, enjoy a splash around at the fabulous Oasiria aqua park, escort them through the lively souks of the Medina alongside the friendly locals, visit the fascinating Djemma el Fna square, with its performing musicians, jugglers, acrobats and snake charmers and at dusk, sample some local food at one of the wonderful food stalls.

TinyTravellers_1In Essaouira, a laid-back seaside resort on the Atlantic coast, walk along the historic ramparts with their ancient canons, ride a camel along the wide sandy beach or perhaps try some kite or windsurfing lessons. Enjoy lots of fun activities in the Atlas Mountains, which all kids should love; from rides on mules (with you and your guide!), spotting lizards and chameleons, meeting and drinking tea with local Berber families and experiencing a simpler, more traditional way of like; the list just goes on…

With only a short flight from the UK (just over 3 hours!), Morocco is within easy reach from home and offers a cultural and educational experience for kids, year round sunshine, charming locals and is the perfect combination of relaxation and fun for all the family.
