There is internet in many coffee shops and hotels. Do not expect a good connection despite the 4G advertising there is some difficulty in getting a good speed. Likewise, we recommend removing the mobile data from your phone before crossing the country’s borders / airports, or you will have a bad surprise because the cost of 5 minutes of data abroad can reach € 60 depending on the telephone company.

Likewise, if you carry your mobile, and you want to have a whastapp, we recommend that when you arrive in the country you look for a store that sells mobile cards. There are many everywhere, even the driver himself who has stayed with you upon arrival can help you.
Buy the card and request that you charge for example 5 euros to use the DATA. Be specific because on the same card you can choose to use data or voice.

Change your card for this one and you will have your WhatsApp working perfectly in Morocco. Your mobile does not need to have room for 2 cards. During your stay you add credit for mobile data as needed.

 

Below is my card from Maroc Telecom, one of the local telephone companies.
