    En Merzouga recomiendo la excursión en quad por las dunas, asi como la noche en las jaimas y el paseo en dromedario. Amar fue super atento a nosotros y nos explicó muchísimas cosas sobre la zona y la cultura.

    Denisse O La mejor parte de nuestro viaje a Morocco!

    Desde el primer té hasta la el último desayuno, nuestra experiencia en Kasbah Azalay fue verdaderamente un sueño. Los hermanos y todo su equipo eran los mejores hosts. Tomaban tiempo para explicarnos sobre la cultura y la región, y darnos recomendaciones sobre actividades.
