Fes Warnings and Dangers: 34 reviews and 42 photos


Tap water in Moroccan cities can generally be drunk. I never did but many of my friends did.
You can, occasionally, though, get sick from it, especially in the hotter months (risk od stomach bugs just increases so much when it's hot). I would say, why risk it if you can avoid it? Just get some bottled water and stay safe.
They also say the water in Marrakech is quite safe, but it also is high in something that is not good at all for your kidneys. That probably only matter, though, when you you drink it a lot over a longer period of time. apparently many people in Marrakech suffer from kidney illnesses.
