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.

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.

    Varun Vignesh

    Bengaluru

    Varun's 2 days trip to Goa

    The second day 10 am, when the trip is about to get started the cab driver said that he has not given any confirmation from his manager. Then I have to call Farhan from travel triangle to know about the situation. Then he called his contacts at Goa and then cab driver got the confirmation. It would have been good if that small hiccup is avoided. Apart from that Farhan did very well regarding all the itinerary and arrangements.

    FAQ's of Goa

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    September is a good time to visit Goa when the rainfall is comparatively less than the peak monsoon months. Also, the hotel and other activities rates are much lower as compared to peak season. Weather is pleasant as there is little rainfall with less humidity.

    October is one of the best months to visit Goa as the rainy season has just stopped and it marks the beginning of the winter season. So, the overall temperature is pleasant. Also, it is not the peak tourist season, so the crowd at the beaches is limited.

    The best time to visit Goa is during the months of November and March. During this time the weather is pleasant so apt for sightseeing and enjoying beachside. Moreover, it is also the time of maximum festivity, therefore, one can enjoy the best of Goa during this time.
