The best time to travel to Goa is between November and March, when the weather is dry and relatively cool, the sea is calm and clear, and all the facilities, from resorts and restaurants to beach shacks and night markets, are open for business. From April until the monsoon rains break in June, the weather gets increasingly hot and humid but on the hill where Summertime is located, there is always a fresh breeze. And then there is the Goa monsoon. Almost like clockwork, within the first ten days of June, the rains arrive accompanied by thunderstorms. The monsoons are truly a spectacular experience from the height and comfort of the villa.
