4. Best Nightlife & The Best Kind Of Parties 

We agree that the majority of the shacks get closed due to high tides and the rains but some of the best still remain open. Remember the party never ends in Goa. These famous shacks and clubs remain open throughout the year - Brittos, Love Passion Karma, St. Anthony's, Mambos, Titos and several others on Bogmalo and Palolem beach as well. Apart from that the majority of the shacks stays shut down in Anjuna And Vagator.

5. The Celebrations Go On!

The festivities never stop in Goa. The fertility feast of Sao Joao is celebrated on 24th of June - people around jump into wells, streams and pond as a way of celebrating the event - it holds a great significance in Christianity. You'll witness localities wearing crowns of leaves and fruits on their heads with drinks in their hands celebrating this festival. Right after this one, Festival of St. Peter is celebrated on 29th June - after the church service, a large feast is held. In August, Divar Island celebrates the famous Bonderam Festival which has a colorful parade with flags of different colours which are tagged along with famous local bands from the city.

6. Cheap Rentals Of Cars & Thars 

Public transport like taxis, buses is also an option but that would only be a hindrance in your zest for exploration. The options are endless if you want to rent a private way of transport. Now, if you are aware of the scooty and car rents during season time then you definitely know how it feels getting a hole in your pocket. So save up huge this time by traveling during monsoons and pay super cheap prices to rent a scooter or your favorite jeep.
