Morocco is a diverse country which is fantastic to explore. The bustling Medinas, beautiful ruins, picturesque streets, enchanting palaces and pristine beaches are just but a few attractions you get to see in Morocco. Life in Morocco is different from that in the west, and one must take general precaution during their stay in Morocco.
During the night, the Atlas Mountains get freezing. While hiking in the mountains wear warm clothes to protect yourself from the cold to avoid getting sick. Morocco is a malaria-free country; you do not need to worry about mosquito bites, but you can still take the usual precautions to stay safe. One is advised to have polio and tetanus vaccines to enter the country. For more safety, all other vaccines are recommended.
Bottled water is recommended for drinking while in Morocco. The Moroccan authorities are concerned with the pollution caused by the plastic from bottled water, and many restaurants have filtered water for visitors that are considered safe to drink. The restaurants have detailed information on the filtration method, and the water is usually free. To avoid dehydration, it is advisable to take two to three liters of fluid daily while in Morocco, especially when walking in the desert areas and the mountains.
Moroccans are generally honest and friendly; however, petty crimes such as pick-pocketing and bag snatching do happen in Morocco. Hustlers and Con artists also target tourists. To enjoy your time in Morocco, politely refuse their services and walk away. Faux guides are also very popular in Morocco, and some pretend to be students or ask you to translate something into English, beware of such people. They often lead you to a shop and persuade you to buy from them. Avoid eye contact and ignore them, if persistent, a firm and definite ‘no’ can work for them.
The state of roads in Morocco varies throughout the country and during the year. The safety of the roads depends on the seasons, heavy rains or snow creating more dangerous conditions for driving. All kinds of vehicles from donkey carts to cars are legally allowed to share the same road. With regards to this, it is important that one takes necessary precautions while driving around the country.
