You will have to wait until you get to Goa to change money, you can't get rupees outside of India. Don't bother changing money at the airport, it's a rip-off, wait 'til you get to your resort. Have a great time!

Another tip - do not change all your money at once. Firstly who would need a suitcase to carry it around and secondly you will probably spend far less than you thought. I always seem to bring some back with me so only change it as I go. An initial amount of say 200 euros will go a long way. You are not supposed to bring rupees back with you and in any case if you do not intend to go again, there would be no point. Have a great time.
