    Hi all, It has been brought to my attention that Taghazout may have recently opened up to motorhomes again ? Not confirmed however and if any of you are passing that way can you check it out and post an update on here. I was of the view it is permanently closed to motorhomes.
    Thanks in advance.

    Funny - we were headed to Echrigui when from the roundabout we saw the on-beach guardian parking just below it. We're sitting there right now. Got in half an hour ago. Unfortunately we head back tomorrow.

    Just to remember at Tangier Med you have to go through the mobile X-ray machine and quite a queue can build up. Give yourself plenty of time

    Thanks - we ended up breezing right through - no line for the x-ray this morning. Same in Spain - just waved us through- no questions even about the dog and titres test. We had a similar experience entering Morocco - less than a half hour all told. We're in Iberia for a week then back to Canada. Gelves tonight- Sevilla Remedios tomorrow.

    Does anyone go across to Morocco in October? We are considering it and have never been before so any info on this time of year would be great!
    Also when you go to Carlos do you have to pay for the dogs crossing too?

    november can be a very wet month . have done oct ,nov ,dec , then extended to jan,feb ,march.
    but after a few years decided just go beginning of dec do three months then out . march /april can be very windy as the trade winds come up . lots dust etc . but can be interesting watching the whirlwind sand blowing around .
    never paid for my dog to cross ever. even before carlos was the ticket man.

    Ok, 0k, sitting on the new camper stop at Sidi kaouki, about 14 miles south of essaouira, the campsite here was full, but the camper stop is perfect. Only a short walk to the 'restaurants ' on the seafront. A real surfers vibe to the area. It's got a couple of camels and horses on the beach and 3 quad bikes.

    When we bring our 7 year old granddaughter to Morrocco , for the 3rd time in the Feb half term, I think we will return here with her.

    Last year we took her down to guelmim.

    And the sun is shining

    Insallah

    Following camper contact reviews' you know who I mean' we planned on going to the camp site. It only had one small space left, and the swimming pool is still a hole in the ground.
    The camper stop is 50d a night, iffy leccy is an extra 10d. Loads of space, a toilet block that swmbo used for a shower and wash her hair ( definitely a first in morocco), and a decent service point. And no hassle locals popping, but are NO problem.
