International volunteers can also ask the national ones to show them the Hammam (public baths). Actually, you should try it once at least; it is indeed a very relaxing and enjoyable experience and has many virtues for the skin.

Notes: Kenitra is a medium sized city of the northern oceanic coast of Morocco, only 30 minutes away from Rabat. It was first established as a Phoenician trade harbour but most of this basement was destroyed with the time and the current city s actually quite new for a Moroccan city as most of it was built under the French Protectorate. The climate of the city is rather oceanic with cool and humid winters and not unbearably hot summers. This city is very young and modern, there is no real “Old Medina” like in every other city, just an ancient Kasbah and the new city build around it.Comparatively with its neighbour Rabat, the city has a quite active nightlife going n with many places to go out and enjoy yourself. The beaches around the city are also know for surfing.
