Although there is no official off season time in Goa, the tourist inflow does lessen during the monsoons, since sightseeing and beach visits become nearly impossible during this time. The monsoon in Goa makes the state even greener than it already is, and for some people spending some time during the rainy season in Goa is a major attraction.

March - May: As the temperature soars to the highest degree at this time of the year, and the weather is quite high and humid, people often avoid visiting Goa during the months of March to May. However, as the prices of accommodation are quite low, one can consider this period for a budget tour.
June - September: And, here comes the monsoon season with the arrival of the month of June. Moreover, as during this time of the year, Goa hosts a bevy of parties and festivals, it can be a good time to visit here, and indulge in its vibrant and lively environs. In addition to that, June to September is also a good time to experience lush greenery, and avail a great amount of discounts on accommodations for a memorable experience. Best places to visit in Goa in monsoon are Dudhsagar Falls, Mhadei River, Spice Gardens.
October - February: With the beginning of the month of October is the best time of the year to visit Goa. Courtesy to the comfortable and pleasantly cool weather, this is one of the most preferred times to laze along the sandy beaches and enjoy sunbathing. Especially, the weather of Goa in December is quite soothing to enjoy a sojourn there. Though, as it is the peak season of tourism in Goa, the prices of accommodation are quite high. And thus, it is recommended to make your booking in advance.

Lokendra's 6 days trip to GoaWhatever Itinerary committed with you may or may not be fulfilled. Commitments on Paper will stay in paper only. We have booked a trip to Goa and had faced multiple issues with the vendor. listing below: 1. Committed for Hi Team during the first three days at Hollywood Resort , but was denied by Hotel and was not further addressed by the Vendor as well. We have called the vendor for the same but sadly they just said "it was Hotels decision to stop the same" , but was it written on the Itinerary ? it was committed but not fulfilled. 2. Commitment of First night surprise Cake - Missed . Have to follow up even on second day for the same. Sad. 3. Commitment of Complementary Dinner on Day 4: Missed. Have to follow up even for this and was server at 10 PM. We expected a smooth and error free trip, but it was not that ways. Hollywood Resort : Over Rated and over charged.
