There are lots of little shops around for all the provisions Stalex, When I stayed up thet end i changed my T/C at the Elephant shop when i came down to Candolim central, as i always found they had a better rate,and no hassle. I cannot remember a place near the Santana for changeing money , but you can be sure there is one.

Thanks Vurda, the elephants shop's name always comes up so where exactly is it? Although I've eaten there I've not stayed in Candolim since 2000! Lol

Hi

There's one Elephant shop by Jambalaya (opposite Newtons) and another one next to Magnum Resorts and the leather shop in central Candolim.

I found there was a very good shop to exchange money on the beach side of the main road in Sinquerim by the O Hotel which very near the Santana - often that gavethe best rate when I was there.

And another little shop more or less opposite Whispering Palms.

Plenty of choice ;-)
