driving from Marrakech to Taghazout

Hello there, I am traveling from Marrakech to Taghazout next week and wanted to pass through the Atlas Mountains, is there a 'best route'? Is the R203 safe and enjoyable or are the national roads a better option? Thanks!

Fastest is the motorway. I don't have a map to hand but assuming you mean the Test pass for the R203, whether you consider it safe and enjoyable depends on what you are used to.

Someone from Colorado would say yes; someone from Florida would be throwing up by the side of the road.

Thanks Tim, I presume that is the motorway through the mountains and not via Essaouira? I think we may be cutting it a bit fine for time if we want to go on the R203, I think if it was a 'must see' road then I might do it, but I'm responsible for my better half as well so maybe the easier option is the better one in this case.

Not a must see in my opinion if on a tight schedule. The toll road is much faster and safer.
