      Hi, I will be flying to Goa with my boyfriend from 10 Apr 16 for 12 nights and I was hoping for some insight from people who have been recently. We are looking at spending a week in the South then moving North (or vise versa) for a week. We both have quite busy jobs in the UK so we're not keen on moving too much so hoping we can find a good base in each district and hire scooters to explore. Is this viable or are the districts larger than I imagine?
      Looking at Palolem South then maybe Vagator/Anjuna/Baga in the North. Any opinions on these locations would be great? We're both early 30s and like a good drink and some fun but also want to chill out, do day trips and don't want to be surrounded by drunk teenagers all the time.
      Final question and my main concern: do we need to book accommodation at this time of year? I've heard that many of the places are not advertised on the Internet and actually we'd be better off looking around on arrival? I don't want to turn up and end up with nothing appropriate left. We're looking at beach hut type accommodation with some character just slightly better than budget. Thanks in advance for any advice.

      Mumbai to Goa - flight or taxi??

      by Tanjavd Online Now Feb 20, 2016 at 12:21 PM

      What is the easiest way to travel from Mumbai to Goa? Reason I ask is because Mumbai hotel taxi to airport is more than 1 hour + 1 hour check-in before flight + 1 hour flight + 1 hour to Goa hotel. Isn't a taxi direct from Narriman Point to Candolim easier?

      Thanks

      Luxury hotel/resort close to restaurants/action

      by Tanjavd Online Now Feb 4, 2016 at 10:14 PM

      We are planning a relaxing/beach getaway to Goa end April and want to stay at the Taj Holiday Village in Candolim, however this hotel looks far from everything.
      Ideally I would like to walk from my hotel to restaurants and shops/markets and not take a taxi every time. Is there any other luxury resorts that is closer to the action? Not the hippies please.

      I would like to extend my stay in Goa for a week or so - maybe spend 4 days in the South on a quiet beach with some restaurant choices before heading up North for a bit of life. I'm not into the party scene, but wouldn;t mind some live music and a chilled out feel.

      Hi guys, will be going to Southern Goa from the 20th-Dec until the 30-Dec.

      I'm looking to chill out by the beach, stay in a shack and just go for walks/meditations/ayurvedic massages. I'm looking for somewhere with a chilled out atmosphere, is friendly but not packed. I take it, South Goa is the place to go rather than the North?
