How much cash for Morocco trip?

We are headed on a trip for 10 days in Morocco. We will spend one night in Cassablanca, 3 nights in Fes at a riad, 3 days/2 nights on a tour through the desert and mountains, and finally 4 nights in Marrakesh at a riad. Our hotels will accept credit cards, but how much cash do I need for meals, and other small incidentals? Do most of the restaurants in the medinas only take cash? Are ATMs easy to find in Fes and Marrakesh?

In Casablanca, Fe and Marrakesh, you shouldn't have a pb to find at ATM.

Regarding your question of "how much cash", it's hard to tell. It depends on what you wanna eat/buy...

I always just stop by an ATM if I need dirhams. They are easy to find in any city and of course the airport.

If you are driving, make sure to have some bribery cash to hand over to the local police. About $5 worth should do it in my experience. Or just drive very slow in the cities and strictly obey all laws. I got stopped a couple times for going just a smidge too fast.
