      Hi - I just answered your question in the forum. Most tours/watersports don't open until October (usually late October).

      One is "Little" Vagator and one is "Big". You will be fine at either.

      I met my husband in Mumbai - he is Indian so it just made sense to get married there. All total I lived there over 7 years between Mumbai and Goa. Now I get back once a year or so.

    Donna what place do you recommend for a base in Goa? I know north is for amazing sunsets. What beach amazed you more?

    Fine Things-to-Do tips about your former home town. Thanks for explaining the details of the Mehndi skin decoration; I had been wondering about that. Some of my family members have recently been to Goa ? they also did the elephant-bathing thing and loved it.
