Summary: The pros of living in Morocco include its diverse culture, beautiful landscapes, and rich history. Additionally, the cost of living is relatively low, making it an attractive destination for those looking to stretch their budget. On the other hand, the country has a high unemployment rate and limited access to healthcare and education. Additionally, the infrastructure is not as developed as in other countries, making it difficult to access certain services.
What are the pros and cons of living in Morocco?
Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Morocco responded:
"Expats and digital nomads often appreciate the affordability of living in Morocco, as well as the country's rich culture and history. They also enjoy the warm climate and the opportunity to explore the diverse landscapes of the country. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may find the language barrier and lack of infrastructure to be challenging. Additionally, the cultural norms and expectations can be difficult to adjust to for those coming from different backgrounds," said one in Morocco.
"I enjoy living in Tangier with its beaches ,culture and proximity to Spain. Before covid I would jump on a ferry and arrive in Tarifa Spain within one hour for a mini break. My main sadness is the distance from Tasmania Australia to Tangier Morocco which accounts for the desire to live in Sth East Asia post Covid," explained one expat in Tangier.
