Goa is a tiny speck of Sun – drenched, palm- fringed, hillock-speckled,lush-green-field-dappled paradise, skirted by white- topped sprays of salty blue waves. But then,Goa is a lot of things. This little seaside state, with an identity that’s a seamless blend of Latino influence and Indian tradition, was crackling enough to have been one of the Millennium destinations of the world.

Goa is all about relaxed lifestyle, enlivened by the Goan love for music and dance, spiced up by its superb cuisine. Summers on the golden sands, winters in the warm waters, or soaking in the Goan rains- Goa is exhilarating all round the year. The scenic splendor of Goa simply dazzles as nature bares her treasures, unfolding miles and miles of glorious vistas of rivers, ponds, wooded hills and valleys.
