My boyfriend and I are thinking of planning a trip of 7-10 days to Morocco this year, and as we want to go a lot of different places and don't like to be stuck in a group, renting a car would be ideal. We'd probably be flying to either Marrakech or Fez as I really want to see both, and we'd like to go to the coast as well (my boyfriend wants to kitesurf and we've seen that there are places for this in Dakhla or Agadir) and also see a bit of desert. I guess we'd do the desert part as an organized tour by 4x4 but if anyone can give us any advice about how realistic / expensive / nerve-wrecking it would be to do the rest by car in this timeframe, it'd be great. It's our first time to Morocco but we went to Egypt last year and we would not like to find ourselves in any kind of Cairo-like traffic or be rushing from one place to the next with no time to enjoy it! Any suggestions for the itinerary would be great too.
The second option we've considered is driving south from Madrid and taking a ferry to Morocco, that way my boyfriend can bring his own kitesurfing equipment without having to take it on a flight (not sure if Easyjet will let him). Any advice about this would be greatly appreciated as well.
Thanks a lot in advance,
