Having risen against most currencies during 2013, the Moroccan Dirham (MAD) has eased by some 8% during the past few months and is currently fluctuating at around MAD 13.45* to the pound sterling and MAD 11.25* to the euro; holidays in Morocco are thus even better value, with spending money going that much further.
Cost of dining in Marrakech
Take, for example, a restaurant meal for two. Whilst a fine dining experience (and there is no shortage of opportunities for experiencing the very best of European and Moroccan cuisine) will vary between MAD 600 and 800 a meal at a midrange restaurant will average around MAD 400; if that’s not reasonable enough a street food experience can be yours for less than MAD 100!
That’s good value by any standard, whatever your preference, all the more so at current rates of exchange, some 8% better than they were a year or so ago.
Marrakech offers some unique experiences well worth enjoying at any cost. But with current exchange rates making them even more attractive this is a perfect time to see the best of what the city has to offer.
