If you like youth-hostelling, the Casablanca Youth Hostel is a must; It is in a beautiful old building with lovely tiling, just inside the walls of the Old Medina - only 5 minutes away from Rick's Cafe. Accommodation ranges from dormitories to family rooms with en-suite facilities. It is all spotlessly clean. There are computers with an internet connection. Call + 212 (0)22 22 05 51. For details of the main youth hostels in Morocco, see Visit Morocco Website.
Don't forget to bring:
Comfortable walking shoes or hiking boots. A day or evening stroll on the Corniche (next to the Atlantic Ocean) can be a wonderfully relaxing way to see the beach area, stop in at one of the beach cafes and have a delicious cappuccino as you watch the waves roll in or the sun set on the distant horizon. If you feel like something more energetic, the High and Middle Atlas provides some wonderful walking/trekking.
Golf clubs. Golfing is a year-around event here in Morocco, so if this is your game, bring your clubs for a round of golf in one of the nearby courses. Cost is around $40 - $45 per round of golf; caddie fee is $11 for 18 holes.
