The best time to visit Goa is between November and February when the weather is pleasant and clement, though the period between Christmas and New Year tends to be busy. Flights arrive at the Goa International Airport in Dabolim, which is well connected by road and rail. Private taxis, scooters, and bikes are easily available to get around—and between—towns in the state. Konkani is the official language, though English is spoken widely. The currency is the Indian rupee (INR); credit cards are accepted at most hotels, stores, and restaurants, though market stalls and beach shacks might require cash—if so, ATMs are easy to find. It's usual to tip 10 percent. The voltage in Goa is 220 so bring an adapter if necessary.
