Is Morocco safe to visit? The country has more of a laid back feel to it for visitors and is, generally speaking, safer than its neighboring countries. Here are some simple guidelines that you can follow to ensure that your trip is complete safe and stress-free.
Clothing in Morocco: While the larger cities and tourist destinations are generally safe, we recommend more conservative clothing especially for single female travelers, especially in the less-visited areas.
Road conditions: If you are driving around Morocco, pay close attention to the roads at all times. The quality of the roads varies quite a lot from one city to the next and some of the highland and desert roads are somewhat underdeveloped. Remember; to be vigilant since you are not in your home country.
Theft: While theft is not frequent, like anywhere else in the world, do exercise common sense, especially when in the souks and medina. When travelling, keep your valuables in a money belt strapped to yourself or some other secure device. Every hotel provides a safe, either in your room or at the front desk, so you can store your valuables safely. Despite some recent reports of robberies in Fes, it is generally considered a safe city, especially if compared to most of its European and American counterparts. However, we advise you to be cautious, and if you want to go out at night you can always ask your guide and chauffeur to accompany you.
For tourists in Morocco: While on the topic of guides, you may meet faux guides when you are out and about by yourself. Such individuals may attempt to use broken English to convey that they would like to show you something or bring you somewhere where you may feel coerced into purchasing something. Please avoid and ignore these guides and stick only with the trusted guides that we have provided for you. If others approach, avoid eye contact and do not accept any free gifts they present to you.
Drugs are illegal in the country. The punishments for using or handling drugs are quite serious.
