Goa is like a dream destination for many and we have been lucky enough to visit the place three times.Everytime seemed a new experience though and I would love to head back there anyday.
How to reach? It takes about 8 hours from Pune. One can also fly to Goa as it has a domestic airport as well.
Stays? Here is an important aspect of the trip. It varies from person to person and trip as well. Some might prefer resort, some might prefer sea facing huts and some might prefer cheap stays. All are good though. If you prefer crowded places and are into partying North Goa will be preferable while South Goa beaches will give you solo time. So you might plan your accomodation accordingly.
Conveyance. It is better to rent two/four wheelers as Goa is a very small place and it is better this way.
Here is a list of places and things to do. You might want to shortlist them and club them as per ease.
1. Forts. Goa houses a lot of forts. Some of them
are Chapora fort, Aguada Fort. One can also take ferries en route Aguada fort . The ferries will take you to Dolphin sightings which are prevelant mostly in December. These forts are nice for clicking photos as well.
