Everything about Goa!Goa Seasons
When to go to Goa?
The answer depends on what you are up to!
If you are keen to join the party, go there between November and February. This is a rain-free, cooler period of the year. Needless to say, this season attracts busloads,boatloads and planeloads of tourists to Goa. Prices skyrockets, tickets are hard to come by. Goa fires on all cylinders. Join the crowd...oops...party!
Come March-April, Indian schools are colleges are closed for summer. Summer vacation crowd arrives at Goa to make some splash in the beaches. As May approaches temperature start rising, that will persist till about mid June when the monsoon rain arrives. Schools reopen. Tourists depart. Beach tourism windup in one stroke. Temperature drops, thanks to the rain. So is the hotel and resorts rates!
June to October it rains and rains.
Those who are looking to capitalize on the off season deep discounts take note. Make hay while the sun shines, in case of Goa, read it as while it rains.
Set you base in a resort/homestay located in the hinderlands of Goa, in the lap of the Western Ghats. Though the beach scene is a bit dull, the mountainous inland of Goa looks specular during and post monsoon months. Make your agenda around such themes (Trekking,Fishing,Crab hunting....or simply enjoy the Nature)
