Summary: Expats, digital nomads and retirees discuss what it is like to live in Morocco: Cost of living, Finding a home, Meeting People and more.

Is there a lot of crime in Morocco?

We asked people if there is a lot of crime. They answered:

"Very safe. Pickpockets are around, but have never had a problem. Nothing like Barcelona," mentioned another expat in Rabat.

Answer this Question

Is there a lot of diversity? Are people in Morocco accepting of differences?

"As a black American I have never disrespected but I know no one outside of my wife. I do not speak either Arabic or French so I'm unable to have any conversations with anyone outside of my wife. I have not seen any other American living in Al Hocemia. But I'm still hoping to meet other people and hopefully some Americans," commented one expat who made the move to Al Hocemia .

What are the schools in Morocco like?

"This school has fantastic academics... students are often 1-2 years ahead when they repatriate home," commented one expat when asked about American School Fes (Amicitia) in Morocco.

"I would recommend this school. Its size (450 students) makes it easy for everybody to integrate in the new environment, communication between parents and school is smooth, the teaching staff is very good. The students turnover is quite high though, as the school families are mainly from the diplomatic world (embassies, international organizations etc)," remarked another expat living in Rabat with children attending Rabat American School.
