Although Morocco is becoming increasingly progressive in its attitudes, the majority of the population are devoutly religious and as such it is generally best to conform to local customs where possible. For women, covering the shoulders and knees is advisable when venturing outside the hotel or resort.
Morocco is one of the safest countries in Africa to visit, although terrorism remains a threat. Protective security measures are in place at many Moroccan hotels and sites popular with tourists. Visit the Foreign Office website
before you travel for the latest information and advice. Ensure you purchase travel insurance before travelling and check with your insurance provider that cover for Morocco is included in your policy.
