Traveller tips from the experts

Best Time to Visit

Goa has turned into an all year round destination for travellers. The ideal time to visit South Goa is from November to March when the weather is conducive for outdoor and marine activities. However, if you love the rains, do not miss the monsoon season to experience this tropical paradise. During the summer and monsoon, Goa is relatively less crowded which makes the flights and accommodation affordable and makes the overall experience value for money and special.

Please Note

Almost all of Make It Happen experiences are operational throughout the monsoon season.
