    I too think that winter is the best time to visit Goa. In monsoon even the rooms are cheaper the Goa is almost closed for tourists. Nothing exciting is there in monsoon.

    And then there is Goa monsoon. Almost like clockwork, within the first ten days of June, the rains arrive. By this time all the temporary beach hut resorts have closed up and been removed and the only options for accommodation and eating are guest-houses and cottages of a more permanent nature, self-catering houses and apartments, and the large hotels dotted up and down the coast.
