It doesn’t rain very often in Morocco, but when it does, people tend to stay indoors. Don’t worry about the empty streets, however—it’s just a tendency among locals who are used to the sunny clear skies—because there are still plenty of activities to enjoy in Casablanca when it starts pouring.

Cinema

The most popular cinema in Casablanca is Megarama, and although it is located on the seafront, it does get quite windy. It’s cosy once inside, however, and while films are streamed in French, original versions of movies are available to watch during certain hours.

Bowling

Inside Tamaris Aquaparc, there is a bowling area. Open everyday day from 2 pm to 11 pm and with prices start at 55 MAD (€4.98; $5.78) per person, they also have seven pool tables to enjoy. This is such a fun option to spend a cosy evening.

Indoor amusement park

Within Morocco Mall—the biggest shopping mall in North Africa—there is an indoor amusement park called Adventureland that is full of different rides and games for children and adults alike.

It’s open from 10 am to 10 am, and the payment is through a card that needs to be purchased and topped up there to have access to the rides.

At the end of Adventureland, there is a hidden ice skating track of 1100 meters (1203 yards) with a Winter Medieval Village theme. It is open year round and although sometimes it gets crowded if it’s a rainy weekend, it is definitely worth a visit.

The prices are 65 MAD (€5.88; $6.83) per person on a weekday and 80 MAD (€7.24; $8.41) on weekends, and they’re open from 10:30 am to 10:30 am daily.

While leaving, exit the amusement park and find little stands selling warm crepes right outside.

Café

Now there are quite a few cosy cafés in Casablanca, and one of the clichés but truly cosy when it comes to atmosphere has to be Starbucks.

There are at least three Starbucks in Casablanca, but by far the best one on a rainy day is the one on Boulevard d’Anfa. It consists of two floors and the one above has a plate-glass window overlooking the wet boulevard.

Another amazing spot is Beverly Bakery Café a small café located near Marché Badr, the owners are American and have settled in Casablanca to share typical American pastry with locals. They serve amazing coffee, cinnamon rolls, donuts, and other delicious sweets.
