Goa March 2013 - good time to go??

Hi all, I am planning a trip to India in March and debating if it's best I travel North to South or the other way around.

I do like the idea of finishing by the beach in Goa, but I will not get there till around the 20th of March. I am concerned this may be towards the end of the season and that beach shacks, restaurants, bars etc will be very quite or closed? I am keen for a bit of a party or at least not a completely dead place. I have seen older forums some saying they can be quiet around this time, others saying they are fine till after Easter weekend?? Does anyone know?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks :)

DelhiShilpa,We agree that the so called 'watersports' on the beaches at Calangute and Bage are totally unregulated (and expensive - 1000 rupees quoted to us when some friends fancied a go on the 'banana' last week). Last year a friends teenage daughter came back crying with a badly bruised leg after riding the 'donut'. You'll see when you get here.

There are two 'waterparks' here, one halfway along baga creek road by the Royal Goan heritage but we haven't been down that way this season so don't know its status. The other is along the road past the new Saturday night market on the left. That one is open but I have no knowledge of water quality etc. You might want to ask on here for info. Roamers.

Not a good idea to put personal contact details on a public forum, I'd edit your post to remove those details if I were you. ;0)

There will be some great day parties to celebrate the festival of holi... i strongly recommend this one.. i might be in this party too... http://www.goabase.net/72507

there will be lots happening in goa until april end, so don't worry.. the shacks shut down usually during monsoon, i.e. after june 1st week.. check out shati goa at ashwem beach.. enjoy!
