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," explained one expat living in Rabat, Morocco.

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," mentioned another expat in Al Hocemia .

What are the schools in Morocco like?

Live in Morocco? Answer this Question

"This school has fantastic academics... students are often 1-2 years ahead when they repatriate home," said another expat in Fez with children at American School Fes (Amicitia).

"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 parent with kids at Rabat American School in Rabat.

"I highly suggest this school if you are looking for an alternative to the American curriculum. Canadian schools have always been known as excellent schools, and this one does not disappoint! The kids are learning math, science, language, reading, without even knowing it. They think it's just play. It's a very sweet school," explained one expat living in Rabat, Morocco.

"I was already familiar with the Montessori approach and so was delighted to find this school for my daughter to attend," said another parent with children at Montessori School in Agadir.

Is the cost of living in Morocco high?

We asked people how much they someone comfortably live on in Morocco, they wrote:

"I live very carefully, don't drink, don't smoke, so can't answer for anyone else. It depends on lifestyle. My favorites are enjoying the ocean, and a Moroccan mint tea. It also depends on what kind of neighborhood you choose," explained one expat living in Rabat, Morocco.
