With a whole family

by jakub.kowalski

Dear all

I want to come to Casablanca with the whole family (me + wife + our children: 2 and 3 years old) in March. My goal is to spend there a one-week holiday: to lay on the beach for some time (if the weather is good enough) and to do some walking through the friendly parts of the city, which are not overcrowded and polluted as the city itself. Yes, yes, yes, frankly speaking I know that Casa probably IS NOT the perfect location for travelers, but... it was a bargain to book a cheap flight. It seems to me that traveling with kids to another Moroccan city (Marrakesh, Fez or Agadir) is not a good idea, and let us better stay in Casa. What do you think?

Anyway I look for a nice place to stay in Casa – as a family we look for something bigger that a hotel room. Usually www.homelidays.com website is ideal for us, but this time there are only a few houses to rent. Can you suggest me some places?

Regards

Hello,
Not far from Casablanca about 15km I think, is the city of Mohammedia, It has a good beach and is less poluted than Casablanca, If you are looking for a self catering apartment for your family, you will find a good selection.
Hope this helps..

I personaly disagree. Going to another city would be just the thing to do! Kids love Morocco and Morocco loves children. When travelling with children you will receive a lot of help from locals as they are so child friendly. Normally the children respond really well to this and forget about that they are sitting on a hot bus or train. To make it even more comfortable for yoyu why not rent a car where you can plan your stops.
I honestly believe that if you stay in Casa for the full week you will feel that you have missed out. It might be your cheap entry point but don't make it the low point of your hol!

Re: With a whole family

Thanks for your voice. Is Casablanca really so awful, that we will hate the city after just one week? Frankly speaking we try to be not the tourists, but people who just live in a different city for a couple of days – which means that we are not interested in sightseeing rather in leading a normal life with our children. What does it mean “a normal life”? Renting an apartment (for example: http://www.homelidays.co.uk/rental92897) instead of a hotel room, going to the shop every day in the morning instead of eating everything in the restaurant, seeking for a playground for our children to let them play with Moroccan children instead of staying in a queue to the biggest mosque in the world. We just want to try to be a part of a city and Moroccan style of living. I think it can be done in Casablanca. Can imagine that there are plenty of dirty and noisy places, but also some wonderful ones. It is a question of choice and some preparation before the start of the trip. Our goal is to spend some time at the water (due to the children: 2 and 3 years old), which would not be possible in Marrakech or Fes itself – although these cities are worth to be seen as well.

What you have in mind for your holiday in Morocco is doable in any city, Sprawling Casablaca has to be the most polluted, has too much traffic and has least to offer. A few days would be enough for anyone.

Travel Tips for Casablanca

Mosque Hassan II the biggest...

by xaver

Mosque Hassan II the biggest Mosque in the Magreb and the second religious buildings in the world, second only to Mecca....at least this is what most guides write..but here comes the correction of my dear friend marimar_72"corra,
with all due respect,hassan II mosque is NOT the 2nd religious mosque in the
world for muslims..even if the morrocan say that;-),our mosques rating goes like
this
1-is makkah`s mosque.
2-is the prophet mohammad`s mosque in Madina(saudi arabia)
3-is the al-aqusa mosque in Jerusalem.
then all mosques in the world follow in NO order;-)
surley their Hassan in no more important than prophet mohammad..

HASSAN II GREAT MOSQUE...

by LysDor

The Minaret is 210m high and the total surface of the mosque is nine hectares. It took 6 years and 12.500 workers toiled day and night in shift, directed by french architect Michel Pinseau to complete the building in 1993.

Unlike other minaret, this one has been faced in marble and decorated with green glazed ceramic tiles.
The whole complex is integrated by using the entire range of shades of the colours green and white: universal symbols of Islam.

Long live Soviet-Moroccan friendship!

by CliffClaven

The highlight of old Cliffie's social adventures in Casablanca was the night he gatecrashed a reception at the Soviet Consulate. When the outer ring of Moroccan police asked for his invitation, he patted his pockets wildly and babbled in Bulgarian until the bemused policemen assumed that he was a forgetful Russian who had left his invitation at home. Strolling into the compound, he switched from Russian dress mode - jacket on and ill fitting - to Italian mode - jacket draped casually over the shoulders - and prepared to brave the inner ring of Russian security men. This time he flapped his arms and spoke rapidly in Italian - if not with Florentine perfection, at least with racy Neapolitan fluency - and the security men, who assumed he must have shown an invitation to get past the police, thought he was some junior Italian diplomat and let him in. Alas, old Cliffie's cover was finally blown when the Cultural Attaché - suave, inquiring and probably KGB - sussed him out as he was trying to juggle a plate of caviar canapés and a glass of vodka. Fortunately, the Attaché seemed to find talking to a representative of the decadent capitalist west more interesting than chatting to the ancient crones who had fled Russia as children at the time of the revolution. Several toasts were proposed and much vodka consumed.

Shooting stars

by CliffClaven

Camping in the Moroccan desert is an experience. You can look up into a cloudless night sky and watch shooting stars scud across the heavens to their fiery extinction. You can sit around a camp fire, waiting for the clop-clop of approaching hooves as another visitor arrives on his donkey. You can awake to a freshness in the air, before the heavy blanket of daytime heat descends again.

In the city center the best...

by LysDor



In the city center the best way is to walk. So take comfortable shoes with you.

If you don't feel like walking take a *PETIT TAXI* (Small taxi: RED in CASA, BLUE in RABAT). Just hail and jump in.

As soon as you tell your destination the driver will start the meter at 1.40DHS. Every 100m count 0.20DHS. After 8 pm there is a 50% addition.

During rush hours they might take an additional person in the front seat - BUT each time they'll start the meter at 1.40DHS!

JUST REMEMBER: DON'T BARGAIN HERE. If the driver doesn't start the meter - DON'T PAY!

I did not have any problems - they are very reliable!

FROM THE AIRPORT *Mohammed V* (30KM from city center / takes 30min) the taxi fee is 200DHS BUT you have to bargain it first - don't pay 250DHS or more!
