From the flea markets that welcome tourists with open arms to the exciting nightlife that gives you a chance to party and live your best life, Goa is a delightfully beautiful city that offers something for every tourist.

Even when you are aware of the beauties of Goa, you need to have a concrete plan for how you intend to spend your weekend there. With so much to see and do, there is definitely the temptation to just go with the flow and not make any firm plans. But, you would be doing yourself a disservice because you will only end up exhausted and spending lots of money you don’t really need to spend.

To a newbie, navigating the wonders of Goa can be hectic. Settling issues like choosing a great hotel and arranging for your transportation can already be daunting. You don’t need to worry about having a great itinerary to it. Here’s a little guide to help you.

Consider the Season When You are Visiting Goa

I know you would expect to get lots of information about places to visit and having fun. However, if you are planning to spend a weekend in Goa, you will need to first consider the season and Goa’s weather conditions. You don’t want to visit at a time that is not right for you. For example, if you’re not a fan of hot, humid regions, you should stay away from Goa in the summer.

Typically, winter is the best time to visit Goa for a weekend. This is because the weather is cool and totally appropriate for weather sports. Also, it is the season for festivities and, what’s more, you will have lots and lots of fun.

Now that that is out of the way, here are some things you can do while spending a weekend in Goa.


No matter how short your vacation in Goa is, you are definitely not an adventurer if you don’t try out watersports. Goa is a city that allows you to have all the fun in the world when it comes to the water. There is a wide range of watersports you can try in Goa. These include snorkeling, surfing, scuba diving, parasailing, white water rafting, jet skiing, and knee boarding.

Embrace the Night Life

A weekend gives you roughly three nights to spend in Goa; make the most of it. Goa is not just about beaches and the fun you can have in its waters. Allow Goa to bring out the party animal in you. Visit the food shacks, the clubs, and the lounges. Eat amazing food and dance to great live music. You can start your night tour by exploring the night market then end it with partying in a pub. Most of the pubs in Goa are open until early morning so take your time.

Allow yourself have fun in Goa; do not hold back because holidays are meant to be enjoyed.
