10 tips for Morocco

1. EASY, SLOW & ALLAH

When we touch down on Moroccan soil, we must switch our European habits to slow mode, that's how everything goes here. Keep in mind that Morocco is a Muslim country, so we should act appropriately. Just respect local customs and everything will go great.

2. FA

FA – flask aid (bring a flask, filled with some strong liquor). And don't forget the First Aid kit.

3. FOR YOU MY FRIEND, I GIVE YOU SPECIAL PRICE

Bargaining: who pays quickly, pays double (meaning pays too much). There are thousands of tricks, but the best one is patience. The prices can be dropped to a third of the starting price or more.

4. LURKING

Along with bargainers and beggars, there is that third type of Moroccan athletes – the pickpockets. There is quite a few of these, so it's good to be careful. Keep your documents and larger amounts of cash in a safe place and well hidden (just be sure you don't hide it to well, so you can find afterwards).

5. TELEPHONE

Mobile telephony is the cheapest using Moroccan SIM cards, which you can use with unlocked phones.

6. SURFBOARD

All of you who are taking your honeys with you (surfboards of course), be sure to mention them when you're making your flight reservations. The airplane and its cargo hold can be very full, depending on the dates you pick, like around New Year's.

7. FITNESS

Before you leave, check your fitness level. The more fit you are, the faster your progress. It's really good if you visit your local pool a bit, just to make sure the water is still wet. A couple of pushups and squats definitely won't hurt either.

8. THE SUN DOES FRY

Sunscreen of all kinds (the Sun is very strong, even with the nice cool ocean breeze).

9. CURRENCY and PRICES

1 EUR = 11 Dh (Dirham)
Some prices:

  • 1 Dh = loaf of flat-bread
  • 5 Dh = 1,5 l of water
  • 7 Dh = local bus to Agadir – approx. 30 km
  • 0,5 Dh = for a blind beggar on the bus (if you want to, he'll be satisfied)
  • 60 Dh = Moroccan leather slippers (they last for 2 years)
  • 50 Dh = knitted hat 
  • 8 Dh = 1 h internet
  • 2–6 Dh = 1 kg of oranges (depends on the rain)
  • 50 Dh = pressure cooker
  •  

10. INSURANCE

Take care of medical insurance for abroad in time. This is mandatory equipment for travelling to Morocco.
Extra advice:
Keep a bag full of good mood! :)
