When deciding whether to become an Airbnb experience host, it's important for you to understand the laws in your country. As a platform and marketplace we do not provide legal advice, but we want to provide some useful links that may help you better understand laws and regulations that may apply to different sorts of activities in Morocco. This list is not exhaustive, but it should give you a good start in understanding some key issues. If you have questions, contact national and city agencies directly, or consult a local lawyer or tax professional. For more information on the types of rules and laws that might apply to experiences in general, please see the general information articles about experiences.
Please understand that this page is for informational purposes - it is general, not comprehensive, and it is not legal advice. Please also note that we don’t update this information in real time, and you should always confirm that the laws or procedures have not changed recently.*
Certain areas of Morocco have “protected area” status, for example national parks or nature reserves. In these areas, some activities are prohibited or restricted, or require prior approval from the relevant administration.
In the Toubkal National Park, the following are examples of activities that are prohibited without prior approval from the relevant authority:
- kayaking and rafting
- horse riding
- quad riding
It’s a good idea to consult the Environment Ministry (Ministry of Energy, Mines and Sustainable Development) (English, French) or a local legal adviser in order to understand the restrictions that apply to any particular activity that you intend to offer in a protected area.
