So… is Morocco safe?
A good check point to start would be the embassy site of your country of origin regarding the situation in Morocco. France is one of the closest countries, economical and actively involved with Morocco, whose embassy site goes through all details regarding visiting or even living in the country. (Their site is in French and English).
Indeed it is hard to ignore the global threat and the consequent paranoia when it comes to terrorism, which is the question everybody asks at the end of the day.
So what is the reality? Is it really safe to go to Morocco?
The answer is YES!
In our current political situation, unfortunately, no country in the world will assure you 100% safety from any terrorist attacks. That is a sad reality. Even Europe has high levels of risk when it comes to terrorist threats and some, as France had to live the horror of it very recently… (FREE YOUR MIND EST CHARLIE)
