You are travelling to Morocco during the month of Ramadan (11th August - 9th September) when Muslims will only eat, drink and smoke outside of the hours of daylight. It is respectful not to eat, drink or smoke in public during this time. Some local restaurants may operate amended opening hours, although those that cater to tourists often continue as normal, but may use screens to keep tourists separate from locals who are fasting.
As Morocco is a Muslim country, it is advisable to only wear any revealing clothing (such as swimwear) to the beach or hotel poolside. Women are likely to draw less attention if dressed more conservatively and it is respectful for both men and women to keep shoulders and knees covered when out in public.
When it comes to tipping, a tip of 10% to 15% is expected in the more expensive bars and restaurants, though some establishments include a service charge. Most services are performed with the aim of getting a tip. Visitors should note that tips are the only income for some porters and guides.
Hope this helps!
