- Goa All inclusive holidays
From the sun-soaked Konkan coast, to the downpours of the monsoon season and the rich diversity of life and vivid colours they breathe into the landscape, Goa is a destination with hugely broad appeal for all types of traveller, from sun-seekers to rainforest explorers. An all-inclusive package holiday in Goa, the Pearl of the Orient, puts you amongst those making the journey to this compelling area of the world, and takes some of the worry out of your trip as you don't need to budget so much while you're there.
What to see in Goa
Your all-inclusive trip to Goa is likely to include food, so check whether the traditional Goa cuisine of curry, fish and rice is on the menu. If not, you might want to spend some of your 'extras' budget on an authentic dish, ideally prepared over an open fire to give it an extra smoky taste.
Head to Old Goa and the Basilica of Bom Jesus, where the remains of the so-called 'Apostle of the Indies' St Francis Xavier can be found. These are actually visible in a glass mausoleum close to the Basilica itself, and again, although you might find you have to pay the extra to take a trip there, it's well worth joining the pilgrims to visit this holy site whether or not you are religious.
Goa - what does all-inclusive mean?
All-inclusive holidays to Goa should include your flights and accommodation in the ticket price as standard, and the term usually means that you can spend a very comfortable stay at no extra cost - so food and drink should be part of it too. Check whether that includes alcoholic drinks, as these are sometimes an exception.
Your ticket price may or may not include certain excursions or day trips too, or daytime and evening activities around your hotel and resort. If there's anything in particular you want to see during your stay in Goa, you might want to ask in advance to see if there will be a visit included.
When to go to Goa
The end of June marks the arrival of monsoon season, so don't be caught off guard if you want to avoid the rains. Goa is great for some winter sun, culminating in the Goa Carnival in February and a tradition dating back to the 18th century.
Why should I choose an all-inclusive holiday to Goa?
The main reason for choosing a cheap all-inclusive holiday to Goa is the peace of mind it provides during your time away. When you have already paid for your accommodation, meals, drinks and entertainment you can focus on making the most of your time in Goa. Travelling to India is going to be a journey of discovery, so you don’t want to waste a minute worrying about extra costs adding up. With your all-inclusive holiday covering the basics you are free to discover the wonders of Goa, its beautiful beaches and fascinating rainforests, sampling wonderful local dishes along the way.
