Summary: People describe life in Morocco as vibrant, diverse, and full of culture. Expats love the warm climate, the friendly people, the delicious food, and the unique architecture. The average cost of living for an expat is around $1,500 per month. The approximate population of Morocco is 36 million, and the largest cities are Casablanca, Rabat, Marrakesh, Fes, and Tangier. The cons of living in Morocco include the lack of infrastructure, the language barrier, and the limited job opportunities.

What do I need to know about living in Morocco?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Morocco, they said:

"Before retiring in Morocco, expats should familiarize themselves with the local culture and customs. It is also important to research the cost of living in the area, as well as the availability of healthcare and other services. Additionally, expats should ensure that they have the necessary visas and permits to live and work in Morocco. Finally, it is important to learn some basic Arabic or French, as these are the two main languages spoken in Morocco," remarked one expat who made the move to Morocco.
