Stay in Oyo Maharaja hotel at Vasco De Gama which is having a great hotel in basement with good north Indian food. Visit Old and north Goa for all fun / sight seeing activities.

Bro,
Vasco to North Goa is like 40kms (cab fare around 1500-2k).
It’s better to stay near the beach while on vacation

Yes, there’s on hotel called Annapurna in Morjim. They do veg quite good.

But i agree with what you said, finding good veg restaurant is a challenge sweat_smile

Calangute/baga area is happening place. Lots of veg restaurants mostly on SAI name with great food. Prices are on little higher side. south goa good for clean beaches

Try Shree Sagar Near Mac d on calangute baga road, don’t opt for Navtara Or Navratna. Both have many outlets but not good.
Cheap accommodation would be bloomrooms calangute. I was there in March first week.

Hey there, I resided in Goa for 3.5 years, and haven’t had any issues with food. If you stay close by beaches, you may be irritated with lot of non-veg options and limited veg options, but again I didn’t face this whichever/whenever the beach we choose.

In my case whenever we go out, it is mostly biryani, american/chinese cuisine, or naan/roti kind of with vegetables.

By the way I’m vegeterian by birth and teetotaler until now atleast

Hey, I’ve stayed for around 10 days now and here for next 2 days.

Things I’ve learnt :
- If it’s your first time, go to North Goa because that’s where everything is happening. Keep South Goa for exploration next time since you’re staying for short duration,
- Baga, Calangute, Candolim are commercial beaches with lot of crowd.
- I personally found Anjuna beach to be enough popular yet not so crowded.
- Do visit Morjim beach in the morning, it’s a peacful one and at the tip, you’ve back water where you can witness sun rays reflecting on water in the morning.
- Food I can’t say much because I had some outside and mostly at the stay because I booked an Airbnb stay with good internet connection and kitchen setup.
- Your kids can enjoy playing with sand while you can have fun with water sports. Prices are high and duration is low but if you’re here, my guess is you’ll eventually do it for the heck of it. I found price to be a little less at Anjuna beach as compared to Baga beach for the water sports.
- Avoid late night strolling, Goa gets really shady in isolated areas.

I’ll suggest you to try hiring a car, will be costly but you can’t roam on scooty with 2 kids. The reason being, it’s literally insane to book cab and roam around, cost will be way beyond your imagination, instead better you hire a car and make the most out of it.

One more thing to add,
Don’t carry weed in car or scooty,
Late at night, there’s nakabandi towards Calangute – anjuna road.
You’ll be stopped and vehicle will be searched. Even if they find gogo and no weed, they’ll create issue.

Scooter rent is 300/day and Swift I’d around 1100/day (9-9a.m)

And stay away from spa and massage centres, friend got ripped off
