@Juipp, thanks for the info. Well we will probably be looking for the manic patry scene but with a chance to get away when we want to.
As for the day trips I'd love to visit waterfalls, forests, spice plantations etc. Also a huge fan of the Hampi stone mountain temples (as far as I can tell, haven't researched enough yet) but want to make sure that these a doable day trips form Goa.
For that time of year which beaches would be best, North or south?
@ Goahappydays, thanks for the heads up, I will def start looking for places soon. Any reccomendations?
Is it easy to find trasport to get to the day trips by the way, or should we rent a car?
Thanks again guys
