I am travelling with my father and younger sister to india at christmas; we are flying into Goa the week before but I know from experince that it can be difficult and expensive to find a hostel there at the best of times!

Does anyone know if we would have and easier cheeper and more relaxed christmas if we hop on a plane to Kerela about 22nd. Is it easier to find a nice hut? Does anyone know of a good place we could try and make a resevation? I am keem to make sure we don't end up sleeping on the beach for christmas!

I am also very keen to avoid central Goa ie Baga and Calangulte, they are a little bit like hell for me!

Thanks Ro.

Hey Ro,

To begin with, it won't be all that difficult to find yourself a hotel in Goa around Christmas.
The real fight begins after Christmas.
You can book a hotel on the internet right away.
But it'll be expensive.
More than Kerala, for sure.

From what I know, there are no hostels in Goa - cheap hotels, yes.
Let me know your budget, preferred location in Goa and I'll try looking something up for you.

Have a good one.

hi ro,

finding an accommodation would be even more difficult in Kerala during Christmas, as the rates shoot up during Christmas-new year at both Goa and Kerala.

If u dont like north goa, u can try the places like Palolem beach in the south, for hotels try checking the following sites
