Climate

The climate in Goa is humid all year round. We do not recommend a visit between June and October because of the monsoon with heavy daily rains. The dry season is between November and March when the temperature is around 33C daytime and around 21C at night. April and May are very hot.   

People

Many Goans identify themselves as Goans only, not Indian.
