      Money Exchange

      by Dazza40 Online Now Dec 16, 2010 at 3:00 PM

      Hi there,

      Will be visiting Candolim in Jan, and was wondering what the best way to exchange money is?
      Can you tell me is it easier to take cash (although concerned about security issues)or Travellers Cheques (sterling)or Credit card etc.
      Is it best to exchange in hotel or elsewhere.

      Many Thanks

      Darren

      sunset beach Resort candolim

      by jackiemac Online Now Jul 27, 2010 at 3:51 PM

      Has anyone stayed at the above hotel in candolim? We know it is basic and having been to candolim before are interested to find out what this hotel is like, cleanliness, location and meals i.e breakfast. Also does anyone know if you can apply for a visa at Jain community centre Manchester or are they just agents ? ?

      Its been a nearly two years since we were last in Goa and were wondering about the beach errosion as well. Having seen photographs on the web showing huge breakers to protect the beach. Lastly, we fancy going south for a day or two, how to get there and where to stay etc, rough ideas of costs would be much appreciated.

      Thanks
      Jackie

    • Candolim thought we could leave them behind

      by neilmitch Online Now Oct 10, 2009 at 2:12 PM

      Hi all,I booked 3 weeks at the sonnesta for our aniversery.we have allways wanted to visit india ,love goann trance, indian food and beaches so I thought it would be the place for us , but being a bit strapped for cash decided to leave the two eldest brats at home aged 18,20 for the first time ever, but the wife had other ideas and has booked them a flight to join us for two weeks,she does'nt trust them home alone ,but this leaves us to find them somewhere to stay when they arrive. Are there any very very cheap guest houses ,beach huts,abandoned kids shelters etc ,around Candolim Calingute area ?.Any sugestions welcome Neil Sue and the brats too.
