... or alternatively if you only have 3 days - try the baga/calangute/candolim area; plenty of mid-range places to stay, big choice of restaurants and beach shacks for food/ drink; and take a couple of organised trips to e.g. Old Goa and Spice Plantation.

One of the trips I have enjoyed most was to Hampi. Described as an archeological site doesn't do it justice. Think of an elaborate ancient city, lost beneath the sand, that is re-emerging. And mingled with this are temples and a village that is still in use.

The trip involves one day train journey to Hospet, staying in a hotel that night, exploring Hampi the folowing day, night at the hotel and the train back. This sounds like a lot of travelling for one day in Hampi, but the train journey is an experience in itself. You go up through the Ghats, then across miles of fields, then into a wierd landscape of huge boulders. All fairly slow, so you can sit on the train steps watching the world go by.

The trains don't run every day so look at booking this as soon as you get there if you are interested. The only thing is that it might be a tad hot inland in March?
