Morocco Accommodation and Route

View S&M Boiler Works Accommodations in a larger map. Last updated: 11 June 2016

Costs are all based on two people, two motorcycles, and one tent. Locations included secure motorcycle parking. Many of the campsites had internet but we did not test it as we had good hot spot connection with our cell phone and tons of data to use up. The US$ conversions are based on our average exchange rate while in the country. Often times with the menu pricing we ended up paying more than two people in a camper car; this has been the case in Europe as well.
