Favorite thing: Moroccan Dirham is not an internationaly traded currency and not much sought after in other countries. I believe you can buy Dirhams at Gatwick airport. If you are bringing more than £1000 in cash into Morocco you must disclose it to an official at the airport on arrival. You will be given a declaration paper. When changing hard currency in a bank you may be asked for proof that this money was brought into the country legally, you will then have to show your documents.
The regulation is to discourage money laundering.
ATM's are everywhere but in Essaouira can run out of cash by Sunday afternoon, so plan for every eventuality !
Have fun
