Meet your host:

Mavrick Cardoz is the owner of the lovely Casa Galgibaga in Canacona in South Goa.

After travelling across 11 countries, staying in more than 100 hotels and working with a travel agency in Europe, he realised that his true calling was channelling his learnings towards a venture in his own homeland. This is when he remembered Galgibaga village, where he spent a lot of vacations during his childhood. And thus was born his labour of love, Casa Galgibaga. This workshop is an attempt for him to inspire fellow entrepreneurs. 

Check out the homestay on Instagram under the handle ‘casagalgibaga’.
