So, 48 hours in Casablanca. Well in order to maximize your time, you gotta figure out your bearings; Where are you now, where is your accommodation, where are the things you want to see, do, eat and drink and what is the fastest way to move in between it all.
So we created a custom guide and map that highlights where all the places we visited can be found. FYI while exploring things to do in Casablanca keep in mind there are 2 types of taxi cabs. The Petit taxis are all red and very small (mostly Fiat Uno, Peugot or other similar types) with a roof rack for luggage. The Grand taxis are larger cars, beige/cream coloured (often a Mercedes) and don’t use the taximeter. Find out about Taxicab Fares

Day One

Old Medina.
Start the day strolling around one of the largest and oldest medinas in Morocco and find great buys to take home. There is plenty for the eyes here but the most important thing is to get a feel of how Moroccans go about their day, tending their business and life in general.

Ricks Café.
Designed to recreate the bar made famous by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in the movie classic Casablanca, Rick’s Cafe is one of the best places to stop by while or after a long stroll through the busy Old Medina. It offers the best Moroccan food and is conveniently situated just outside the busy Old Medina, away from the hustle and bustle.

La Corniche.
After recharging, another a must to visit when in Casablanca Africa is La Corniche. Recharge some more, take a stroll along the coast or stay in one of the exclusive seaside clubs. This is one place you wouldn’t wanted to miss for its array of restaurants, all serving tasty Casablanca Food.

Sqala (Restaurant). Before you call it a day, treat yourself to real Moroccan food at Sqala. It can easily be found at Boulevard des Almohades in Casablanca city, right in the Sqala – an 18th-century fortified bastion at the north of the city’s business and economic center.

Day Two

Habous & Old Mosque.
After seeing the Old Medina yesterday, it is important to visit the New Medina – Habous Market with the Old Mosque (Mohammadi Mosque) looking over the market. This is where most traditional items of Casablanca can be found and sold at relatively fair prices. You will surely get a lot of best buys for you to take home.

Mohammadi Mosque

Hassan II Mosque.
Casablanca Morocco is teeming with mosques, which only shows how rich the culture of the locals is. But there is one mosque that you shouldn’t miss, the Hassan II Mosque. It has the most elegant details and architecture that every local in Casablanca takes pride on.

Eating Corn from a grill, getting Henna tattoos outside of Hassan II Mosque. “when you are in Rome, do what the Romans do”, so in Casablanca, it is just fit to eat grilled corn while getting a Henna tattoo outside the city’s most important mosque.

Chez El Kabbaj
Aside from the good Moroccan food that is being served in Chez El Kabbaj, which is by far among the best and always packed, you will also love the fresh foie gras. This is definitely a good place to end your 2 days travel in Casablanca Morocco.

Conclusion:
Indeed, there is so much to do in Casablanca in two days but with a little planning ahead of time, you will surely experience the best attractions and destinations of the city.

Booking Flights:

Skyscanner

The average person doesn’t need to think twice about getting out of town for a 48 hour travel adventure or a long weekend. The only thing stopping you dead in your tracks is finding cheap flights. Please visit our helpful posts on Booking Flights. Personally, I’m all about simplicity so I recommend Skyscanner, the the best way to search the best rates in flights.

Booking Accommodations: 

Airbnb

Finding accommodations is an absolute chore…yawn. So we’ve put together some helpful tips on Booking Accommodations. My personal favorite is Airbnb. If Airbnb was a contact in my little black book, the page would be worn out with dog eared page corners. Letters and numbers a bit smudged because of beer spills and coffee stains, Travel on Airbnb and get a $26 travel credit from me. Cheers!
