Health Care

Morocco has both public and private healthcare facilities, with private clinics mainly concentrated in Casablanca, Marrakech and Rabat. Pharmacies are widely available, even in rural areas. All travellers are advised to take out medical insurance prior to travelling.

Food and Drink

Tap water in Morocco is safe to drink, especially in cities like Casablanca, Fes, Tangier, Marrakech and Rabat, but tap water is best avoided in remote areas where the sources may be subject to contamination. Travellers with sensitive stomachs should also drink boiled water or opt for bottled water.

Meat and fish should be cooked and served hot.

Other Risks

If venturing into higher altitude areas, you should acclimatise first to avoid altitude sickness.
