Best time to visit Goa
November to February is the best time to visit because its the winter season at this time in Goa. Weather is cool and expect a maximum temperature in the range of 20-25 degrees celsius during this time. Early mornings and nights are cool and breezy while afternoons are sunny ideal for getting tanned. However if you love rains and the lush green then July to September is the period for you because its the time of monsoons in Goa.
