You have to be more specific in what exactly you plan on starting and what type of skills you have.

Hmmm not a very original idea, you'll face a lot of competition. And land is pretty expensive in most of Goa, then there will be all the err hoops to jump through for licenses etc...
Don't want to rain on your parade but......

The only way you can run a guesthouse profitably is if it is located within walking distance to the nearest beach. Land near the beaches is very expensive. When are you planning to move?

And the best places are far up north or down south. In between is the money-machine for sure, but the problems are as well.

I am a German living in Germany. First I have to bail out our Greek friends (I mean it, they are our friends) with my tax and rising prices. Hopefully, what's left I can spend in Goa Feb 2013.

Why don't you team up with me and lets start a Cafe/shack at the beach. We'll get the lease from government and we just have to pay the rent. It'll be quite profitable. What say?

Find a marketmaker. I want to be a counterparty to your optimism.
