The North African country of Morocco is experiencing a growth in tourism like never before. One of the biggest reasons is the low cost for air travel from major airports in the United States like Miami and Boston. Royal Air Maroc began providing flights from Miami in April 2019.
Round Trip Air fares from Miami to Casablanca can be found for under $700.
During 2019, government officials from Miami Dade County visited Morocco in a trade mission, culminating with a Trade Forum event at Miami Dade College featuring Her Royal Highness Princess Lalla Joumala and a formal dinner at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables.

Morocco is paving the way for the rest of the countries in the Maghreb region to increase tourism.
Countries like Algeria and Tunisia should also see an increase in Tourism, as Royal Air Maroc has daily flights connecting them to international hubs like Paris, Miami, and Frankfurt.
See the article from Arab News below:
RABAT: A record 13 million tourists visited Morocco in 2019, up 5.2 percent from the previous year, official figures showed Wednesday.
The number includes Moroccans from the diaspora, who account for around half of visitors annually.
Tourism revenues hit 78.6 billion dirhams ($8.16 billion) in 2019, up from 73.04 billion dirhams ($7.58 billion) the year before, the Moroccan Tourism Observatory said.
It attributed the rise — for the first crossing the 12-million mark — to its primary markets, France and Spain.
The North African country has benefited from increased air links, with low-cost carriers launching new routes to Europe.
