Have just started planning a 2-3 wk trip leaving around Dec 20, and would greatly appreciate some initial advice as I'm still waiting for an updated South India guide book to come out.
Is it normally more cost-effective to buy a package holiday or purchase flight and hotel separately?
Can you recommend a good place for 2 couples in their mid-30's? We would like to stay somewhere with a choice of restaurants, close to the beach, on the quiet side (if this exists in Goa??) Not interested in full or half-board packages as like to leave the hotel and explore. Would also be interested in yoga and ayurvedic treatments.
Might also consider Kerala as a destination.
