Safety Tips

Is Casablanca safe?

While Casablanca is relatively safe for tourists, petty crime such as pickpocketing can occur, particularly in crowded areas and tourist hotspots. Keep your belongings secure and be aware of your surroundings, especially in markets, train stations, and other busy locations.

Consider purchasing travel insurance that provides coverage for medical emergencies, trip cancellations, and lost or stolen belongings. Verify what your insurance policy covers and carry copies of important documents, including your insurance card and passport.

While Casablanca is not known for significant mosquito-borne diseases, it's still a good idea to protect yourself against mosquito bites with some insect repellent, particularly during the warmer months.

Use licensed taxis or reputable transportation services when getting around the city. Avoid accepting rides from unmarked vehicles or individuals who approach you on the street. If you're using ridesharing apps, verify the driver and vehicle details before getting in.

Local Cuisine

Exploring the local cuisine of Casablanca is an essential part of experiencing the city's culture. Here's a mini guide to some of the delicious dishes and culinary experiences you can enjoy in Casablanca:


Tagine is perhaps Morocco's most famous dish, named after the earthenware pot it's cooked in. This slow-cooked stew is typically made with meat (such as lamb, chicken, or beef), vegetables, and a variety of spices like cumin, paprika, and saffron.


Couscous is a staple dish in Moroccan cuisine and often served on Fridays, the Muslim holy day. It consists of steamed semolina grains typically served alongside stew made with meat (such as lamb or chicken) and vegetables.


Given Casablanca's coastal location, fresh seafood is abundant and delicious. Head to the city's seafood markets or waterfront restaurants to sample a variety of freshly caught fish and shellfish, including grilled sardines, fried calamari, and seafood tagine. Don’t miss out on sampling the famous Moroccan fish soup called harrira bil hout.

Mint Tea

No visit to Morocco is complete without indulging in a glass of traditional mint tea, known as atai. This sweet and refreshing tea is made with green tea leaves, fresh mint leaves, and plenty of sugar. It's often served in ornate teapots and poured from a height to create a frothy top.

Moroccan Pastries

Moroccan pastries are famous for their intricate designs and delicious flavours. Sample an assortment of pastries from local bakeries and pastry shops, including classics like baklava (layers of filo pastry filled with nuts and honey), chebakia (deep-fried dough coated in honey and sesame seeds), and ma'amoul (shortbread cookies filled with dates or nuts).

Street Snacks

Casablanca's bustling streets are lined with food stalls and vendors selling delicious street food snacks. Try local favourites like bissara (fava bean soup), msemen (flaky Moroccan pancakes), and merguez (spicy lamb sausages) served in freshly baked bread.
