Hi, nice post with lots of information about culture's of Goa. I fully agree that the bеaсheѕ are main attraction of Goa. Though it has been dubbed as ‘India’s beach capital’, the state is equally famous for its churches and could well have been called ‘India’s church capital’! Under Goa tour packages, one can plan a visit to all the famous churches in the state. Here is a look at the best churches

i.   Basilica of Bom Jesus
ii.   Se Cathedral
iv.   Chapel of St. Cajetan

I visited Goa during the monsoon time (June to September). You cannot swim at the sea at this time of the year, the waters are too troubled, so the beaches are empty, and so are the towns around. Most of the hotels and restaurants are closed, and there is no “nightlife & parties” at all.
On the other hand, you will find discounts at the hotels still open, no queues, no reservation problems, and the rain is not a main problem, it only rained to me some afternoons, for 2-3 hours. Some days was cloudy, some days sunny…

While in Goa, money exchange is one of the primary concerns. Where to exchange money?

There are plenty of money exchangers here and most hotels also offer this service to tourists who come from outside India. Just to make sure that you travel safe while in Goa, convert your money into Traveler's Cheques. They are easy to use and can be recovered in case of a theft. The standard Indian Rupee is also used in Goa as all over India....

In Goa, South west monsoon winds brings the rain from June to September, and July experiences the heaviest rains. So its better to go Goa after September.

You may not be able to explore the beaches much during monsoon but monsoon surely is the most beautiful time to visit Goa, as natural beauty is at its best. Plus it is also a good time to explore the city attractions and local culture.
