Hi Im moving this november to Goa for around 1 year aprox. and need to know the cost of living in the north, in the seaside: anjuna, vagator, calagunte...

I seen many diferent prices in internet but most of them of years between 2005-2008.
I need one actual list (from this year). How much could cost a house with 1 or 2 rooms?

Could I live there with 100 euros monthly?
I dont matter to eat cheap food and have a cheap and simply accommodation. A

nyone knows a way to earn some money there??

Thank u so much for ur atention.

Love and light from Spain.

No you cannot live in Goa for 100 euros a month.
Not even close.
Goa is not a cheap place anymore.

To earn money you will need an employment visa and a firm job offer to do it legally.

Guessing you do not intend to do that and will be on a tourist visa, the absolute maximum time you can stay is 180 days then you must leave for at least 60 days.

Suggest you read this forum thoroughly and then have a complete re-think?

To rent some thing decent it will cost you between 15,000 to 20,000
Rupees a month.Thats 234 to 300 Euros a month.You could rent a room, which will have a fan, a bed and maybe a sink with a toilet, might cost around 300 Rps.You take your pick.Then there is food to pay for.The hippy life style ended 15 years ago in Goa so my advice is look some where else, like Tamil Nadu around Malibalipuram for instance, just south of Chennai(madras)

A room for a month - 3000 to 4000 rupees. if you can cook or go extremely local... you might just manage to scrape through...

Shashank, for a foreigner, rs9-10000 is rock bottom unless you look somewhere like urban Mapusa or Margao, during the season. Monsoon time maybe?

J5, I know what you mean, even for me its rock bottom, I am not just used to that lifestyle. However I have seen people do it, like in Maddo Waddo in Calangute. Get a One room apartment / house for around 3-4K, drink out of well, smoke Bidi, buy Britannia bread for 10 rups, chai, some butter.. cook some eggs, vegetables..

and mind you, this is not far from the beach...

If you drank from any well in the Calingut area it would be the last drink you ever had on this planet......from Aguada to Baga all of them are polluted beyond redemption from soak pits and buried garbage.Drinking Feni would be healthier for you than the water.

I meant whatever the locals drink. Your system gets used to it. And anyhow, a 20 L bottle is good enough for one weeks drinking needs, that is around Rs.10 a day..

When you make a six month commitment, you can get the same for 3k, the owner is getting assured 18k, without worrying about his room remaining unoccupied or hassle of multiple customer...

Maybe but people still do it and are perfectly content swimming, bird watching, hiking, camping, reading, I've done it myself for 5 months it wasn't so bad. It's all to do with being able to entertain yourself without the boring touristy bar scene many seem to think is important in Goa.
The OP wants to know about cheap I obliged. You would probably need a bottle of fenni a day to brighten up your life LOL, add 50 Rps.

Yep very true, with a six month commitment you can strike a cheaper deal Shashank I just gave the starting prices.....(and I just woke up)

Cooking doesn't always work out so much cheaper Shashank, and you have to do the dishes too, yuch.

As far as houses go I have a prettyy good deal and 1 bedroom/living room/kitchen/cold water shower for 15000 a month in high season going down 12000 in low season, all about 100 meters from the beach.
You won't get to much cheaper than that along the coast.

Of course to live this life properly you will need an italian chillum and some hippy duds, including leather waistcoat, patchuli oil and a guitar
