You'll hear a lot of people tell you that any time is a good time to visit Goa and experience why it is the party capital of India. While this may be true to some extent, like any other destination, this state too is influenced quite a bit by forces of nature. Goa takes on a different character in each of its seasons, appealing each time to a different side of you.

Winter (Best time and Peak Season- October to March)

Come October and Goa puts on its party hat, welcoming visitors to come have the time of their lives. Monsoons retreat by now and the weather is cool and balmy, just perfect for being outdoors. The mercury hovers between 15 to 30 degrees celsius, depending on the month of your travel (December and January being cooler than the others). The tourist season falls between these months, reaching its peak in December, around Christmas and New Year. Join the festivities with several other tourists who flock to Goa to create its celebratory air.


Between the months of April and June, the sun shines bright and unrelenting over the skies of Goa. The tourist crowd starts retreating and fans give way to full-blown air-conditioners. The scorching mercury rises up to 40 degrees celsius and makes it quite difficult to be out during daytime. Evenings and nights are still pleasant, and with fewer crowds, you can enjoy a good deal of solitude here if you're looking for some. This would also be a good time to travel if you're planning a low-budget holiday as hotel and ticket rates take quite a dip during this time. Sunscreen is the word of the season if you plan to travel now!


The sun plays hide-and-seek with the clouds and the skies take on a soothing, or for some, gloomy shade of gray. Let the raindrops drench you while you make paper boats and jump and splash like a child in little puddles of water. Goa sees ample rainfall between the months of June and September, months when most beaches are out of bounds for safety against high tidal waves. If you're a nature lover, you're going to love the brilliant shade of green that envelops the entire region. This is also the time of the year when this beachy place is relatively less crowded and the rates of hotels in Goa at this time are lower than usual. So if peace is on your mind, plan a trip now! Be sure to pack that umbrella and rubber slippers.

The best time, or shall we say, the tourist season in Goa lasts between the months of October and March, with several night parties, festivals and celebrations colouring and flavouring the entire town. Be sure to plan way ahead for travel during these months, as accommodation options tend to fill up quite quickly. Even if they don't, rates will be quite high at the last minute, so make sure to get a good deal while you can. But most importantly, keep up your spirit of fun and adventure with you at all times for a splendid Goa vacation!

The best time to visit goa is between November to March.

But prices of hotels will be much higher between Dec15 to Jan 10. Also most of the places in the goa are crowded in these 25 days.So plan goa trip between nov 1st to dec 15 or after jan 10.

December is the month to party like an animal :)
