As with any city, petty crime and scamming does occur in Agadir. Keep a watchful eye on your valuables and possessions, especially at busy areas like marketplaces and bus stops. Take copies of important documents and do not carry large amounts of cash around in your wallet. If you are unfamiliar with the city streets do not walk them at night, rather catch a taxi cab.
