Health Councils

Although very close to Europe, Morocco is always an African country, so you need to organize yourself well before embarking on a trip. Although public health has made progress in recent years, public health is not comparable to European health, so it is advisable in case of health problems in private facilities.

Here the cost could be very high, so we always advise you to travel with adequate insurance coverage. During your travels, tours and excursions you may experience stomach pain, this can happen especially if you point to a mosquito or after ingesting drinks or uncooked food. We always recommend that you take first aid medications with you.
