Overview

Come embrace this week long vacation in Goa. Stay at 3 different homestays spread across this land of contrasts to experience it like never before. Visit the quiet fishing villages of Morjim where you can enjoy the serenity of the blue sea, taste the traditional meals of Goan cuisine and swim in clear waters of nearby beaches. We are all drawn to the twinkle of the sea, but when the basking hoi polloi become too much, run for the inlands. Take a ferry to Divar island, where the gaze is shifting towards green grassland, backwaters, historical churches & temples. Take another break from the humidity of the coast and head to Netravali to look over mountains, for a trek to waterfalls or to spend time chasing butterflies.
