Cost of Living in Marrakech

Cost of Living in Marrakech

By in Marrakech Lifestyle with 0 Comments

I’m often asked about the cost of living in Marrakech. And it’s a surprisingly difficult question to answer. On the one hand you can live here with relatively little – certainly compared to Europe – and on the other hand it’s possible to spend a lot of money. It all depends on your lifestyle.

Colin talks you through the various expenses you are likely to incur in this short video:

Probably the easiest way to present this topic is to take an example. We are two adults and a child in our family. We own a little Riad in Marrakech Medina. Our monthly fixed outgoings are approximately as follows, in Euros:

City tax 50

Electricty and water 120

Full time cleaning lady 400

Vehicle insurance 40

Telecoms (mobiles and wifi) 70

Medical expenses 100

Maintainance Riad 100

Food etc 250

Creche 400

Clothes 200

So our fixed outgoings amount to aboud 1’730 euros per month for a family of three. HOWEVER, we spend much more in reality. We often go out for meals (count maybe 20 euros per head in a good restaurant) and drinks (count 15 euros for a drinkable bottle of wine). We like to go to the beach (car hire is about 25 euros per day, hotel room near the beach another 80 euros). We visit museums and parks (10 euros for the Yves St-Laurent Museum or the Anima Gardens). And you can see that lifestyle will have a major impact on the cost of living.

Of course it is possible to live here for much less. If you shop locally you can eat well, as an individual, for less than 10 euros per day. You can rent a decent apartment for just 400 euros per month. Taxis cost about a euro within the city and buses about 30cts. You can buy beer in the supermarket for 1 euro a bottle.
