An Arab Jewel on the African Coast

Just over the Strait of Gibraltar from Spain, this African nation maintains much of its traditional Arab life. See it firsthand in the cities’ ancient medina sections — the ones in Fez and Marrakesh are UNESCO World Heritage sites. Beyond the urban centers, outdoorsy types can find adventure in the mountains and desert or relaxation on the coast.
