A lot of heat coming from people who visited Morocco in their dreams f off
Hazman on Oct 02, 2022:
Morocco and Moroccans are generally kind but I am also a US Muslim and look Moroccan. I have been treated well even after telling people that. I rented my own car so you should know how to drive very well for that. Good and bad people are everywhere and obviously if there is economic scarcity in a country there will always be people who want to make money off of you. Don't generalize not be Nieve with your money and you will be ok. I love my Maghrebi brothers and sisters and wish only the best for that country.

Don't listen to Rupert!!!

I've lived in Casablanca and other areas of Morocco for 5 years but I left last September. Moroccans are closed off socially when it comes to foreigners especially from the U S. I experienced their attempts at thievery daily purchasing things transportation etc. Walking around is a chore too people harassing me and other foreigners for money,and yes it's a constant thing even when trying to eat at a restaurant. They'll come up to the table and ask for money happened everytime I was out.There's nothing pleasant about the Moroccan mindset promise.

Morocco is nothing like the comments I am reading….. I had a pleasant time in Morocco and the people in Morocco are just the same as every else in the world many are pleasant and kind…. There is a few bad ones that want to make a quick buck but are not in the same way as in the U.S. …. Overall, it is pleasant country with great weather, food, and especially people.

Morocco was close alies with European union but now Morocco is on the terrorist watch list for abeding terrorists groups in Morocco.

Anyone who's ever visited Morocco already knows how vicious Moroccans can be.So it's best to never visit Morocco and avoid it all.
Anonymous on Jan 14, 2021:
Most people are aware of how Moroccans are being devious. But there's two areas where Moroccans normally don't enter SAHARA and ALGERIA but if they do enter either of those areas they're never seen again.

Becareful in morocco
Most people here are beggers, even educated, working people, they are all con-artists.
they will ask for money .. or a loan with no intention of paying back .... women ask for money or taking them shopping ... every day thing... they are selfish , self centered people ... if you are from Europe or USA women and men are after visa ... bunch of con-artists. divorce rate is very high because of it....
Keep small change for small taxi.. they cheat you ... even at hyper-market they short change you ....
not a place to visit nor live ... dishonesty is way of life.
buyer be aware.... be safe - stay safe

I agree with your comments on Jan 16,2020 ANONYME !!! That's why men from Assad come to Morocco and steal your fresh pretty women for our own use and your wives too only if they are worthy of us Assad men.Anywhere in Morocco is good for harvesting your women especially at night.

I am moroccan and i dont encourage you to live in big cities like casablanca. Its typically high in population.scarcity of jobs , low salaries and the majority of employers wont fiscaly declare you which will eleminate you from basic health insurance, retirenent..ect. The ideal is come to this country as a tourist, target small cities in the south. Its also beneficial for people seeking extended stay who want to move in and live a decent life and enjoy the nice weather.
