Goa will be quite hot and humid in April but that shouldn't stop you from traveling. From my experience from my last 5 trips to Goa I will suggest you to book your hotel close to Baga beach or in North Goa. I once tried staying near the Basilica of Bom Jesus and struggled to find places to eat post 9:30. I personally love staying near Baga beach as you can stay up late at the beach with your friends and walk back to your hotel without worrying about driving back to hotel. During the day you can plan a ride to the chapora fort, Churches in old Goa, Aguada fort and many nearby beaches. If you are visiting on a weekend with family then you can visit Saturday night market in Goa. You can go party in LPK club. There are some affordable hotels near Baga Beach. Saying all this if you are visiting Goa for a peaceful trip and looking for less crowded beach, then plan your stay in South Goa.
I would suggest, personally, for any trip, always book Airbnb. The places to stay are decent for those traveling on a budget. So you could book an Airbnb which is close to the beach. As for food, don't take the trouble to go to exquisite restaurants because the best food you'll get is in the shacks. The shacks are the best at night because they spread out tables on the beach itself decorated with candles and all you can hear in the background is the sound of waves. Rent a bike in Goa, that way it would be super easy to visit the other parts, and you won't have to depend on buses or other transport. If you're into culture, then visit the churches, old houses, etc. But if you want to chill, then I'm sure you've already heard that Goa is a great place for chilling and partying! Have fun! 😊
Places to Visit in Goa Day one
Vagator and Anjuna Beach
Old Goa Fountain Has These are the Main placess to visit , Best is to Hire a 4 wheeler and travel around as its very humid :) As for the stay anything around Baga would do , as you can enjoy the night life as well
I'd suggest you visit Vagator, Anjuna and beaches close by instead of Baga beach and the ones that side. You'll find many cheap stays in Vagator, and also the crowd is better towards Vagator and better parties.
April will b hot and humid so i recommend to stay at hotel during afternoon.
North Goa is very much happening and you can visit beaches, forts over there.
Visit calanguate, candolim, baga, anjuna beach and chapora, aguada fort.
It's a bit hit in Goa now. if you càn then please reschedule your plan but if not possible then go have fun. take rest in afternoons

Sai guru guest house is great if you want to stay near anjuna bach, hosts are very kind and everything is well managed. we got deal in much discounted price at goibibo.
There are many small restaurants near guest house and it is 10-15 mins from beach. You can easily explore north goa while staying at anjuna.
At this time Goa will be hot. if you are planning to stay in budget look for airbnb options that will be cheaper. in 3-4 days you can't visit everything. you need to short list places and do some research. there are beaches, churches, museums, flea markets, fort and local dining and night parties etc. short list places you want to visit. rent out bikes or car if it fits your budget it's really convenient for local travels.
We are also travelling on the same dates. We have decided to stay and spend time in South Goa. Since it will be hot, we don't want to do too many activities or hopping around so we chose a nice sea view AC cottage. Accommodation is cheap during this time so make sure you book a nice place as you will be spending most of the time inside or in and around where you're staying.
Apr is bit hot in Goa.Please check out or Goa Vlog.This Vlog is a sneak peak of places we visited : North Goa exclusive beaches. Panjim city and church. Goa is a weekend getaway from Mumbai. You can travel flight, train or roadways. Usually the Baga, Calaungte beaches are crowded. If you wish to have a peaceful vacation then head to Morjim or Ashvem beach. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxbS_1b4boE
Visiting Goa in April won't be a good option as it's too hot during day time. But still if you have planned, then you should add these places to you itinerary. Head to North Goa because almost all the best things to do/see are in the North Goa.
Palolem Beach, Butterfly Beach, Agonda beach and a truly gem Cola beach
