Best time to go to Cavelossim

Temperatures in South Goa range from hot to pretty hot. And there’s not much seasonal difference – the mercury hovers around 25°C to 30°C year-round. October to February is South Goa at its sunniest – that’s when to make the most of its winter break potential. Monsoon season hits between June and the end of September. Sure, it’ll stay warm – but it’ll also rain a fair bit.

Passports and Visas
