Before You Go

Recommended Vaccines

There are no specific vaccines required for Marrakesh. Make sure you're up to date with your diphtheria, tetanus, and polio shots. Hepatitis A and B vaccinations are also recommended.

Health Insurance

Adequate health insurance is strongly recommended. Marrakesh's public hospitals aren't great and private hospital care in the city is expensive.

In Marrakesh

Tap Water

Tap water in Marrakesh is safe though it tastes less than delicious. Some travellers though still suffer problems with the water because of different treatment systems. If you have a sensitive stomach, it's best to stick to bottled water or bring a water bottle with a filtration system along on your visit.
