Snake Charmers at Djemaa el Fna in Marrakech

Snake charmers at Djemaa el Fna, Marrakech

Snake charmers are part of the experience when visiting Marrakech medina and its renowned Djemaa el Fna Square. For some dirhams, they let you take pictures with snakes – even a snake wrapped around your neck if you like.

How Much to Pay to Snake Charmers

How many dirhams? Prices of course are very flexible in Marrakech and snake charmers are open to bargaining, which in fact is a must if you don’t want to pay a ridiculously high price. A good rule of thumb is to think how much would a similar attraction cost in another country (e.g. somewhere in Europe). 5 or 10 dirhams is probably too little, 30 or 50 dirhams should be fine.
