Do you want to be a bit more specific? I assume you've done a bit of research on Goa, rather than just booked it blind.

Where are you staying? What sort of things are you looking for?

Goa at Christmas is very busy, lots of tourists, loads of traffic. Our resort had special Christmas eve, Boxing day and New Years eve parties and we had a great time.

Go to travelers shack on baga beach, do the best food. Alex and francis run the place spicy chicken spring rolls are amazing. also try domingos just off tetos road for best stake. Goa is amazing ive been there 3 times.

It is dirty and poor hygene with rubbish over the place but when your there you get used to it, its a poor country so its obv going to be like that. its very hustle and bustle at candolim. watch the roads there busy.

If you sit at one shack then you will be looked after they will do anything for you nice people, couldnt get a better place.

beach isnt the best ever but you get to see diffrent things every day its an amazing experience

Whenever you go to Goa, if its your first time, and I assume it is. You will absolutely love it, or absolutely hate it.

It will be very busy at Xmas time.

I would not describe India as poor. It is rich in many ways, but it does have a lot of poor people that live there. Dont pre judge anyone or anywhere in India. If you go with a devil may care attitude you will enjoy it.

Dont spend a couple of hundred pounds and expect the Oberoi either.

The friends you make there will be the highlight of your holiday.
