How about the currency and where can I get it?
The Moroccan currency is the Dirham. Exchange rates are around 11 Dirhams to 1 €, 13 Dirhams to 1 £, and 8 Dirhams to 1 US $. Dirhams can only be obtained within Morocco. Generally the cheapest way to get the currency is to withdraw using your Visa or MasterCard account from one of the many ATMs in the airport or in Agadir. There are also currency exchange facilities in the airport. In Taghazout ATMs are not available, and the nearest is in the village of Aourir, which is a five minute drive away. This machine and many other ATMs in Morocco do not accept Maestro and can be unreliable, and so if you have a VISA card we recommend to bring it.
