When to goNovember through February tends to be the most popular time amount tourists to come visit. The temperatures are cooler during this time of year in India. If you want to go during a month that still has beautiful weather, but a lot less tourists- you should travel to Goa in October. The beaches tend to be almost empty, which is perfect for travelers who love their privacy. Tip * if you are going to the beaches in October, you should plan ahead of time when it comes to food because a lot of the little shops to get snacks will be shut down.
When not to goDespite the fact that the weather is beautiful during the week of Christmas and New Years, you will probably want to stay away because there are too many tourists.
What to avoidIf you are going to go to the bird sanctuary, avoid hurting any of the birds. As previously mentioned, the sanctuary is home to birds that about to go extinct.
