update on money situation

Hi there,

How is the money situation in Goa now ???

I went to Candolim December last year and there were a few difficulties obtaining actual cash.

Luckily my hotel allowed me to charge to the room then pay by card at the end of the holiday but it did restrict me enjoying other bars etc in the surrounding areas.

Any info would be appreciated as i am going again this year and would like to visit some of the other foody/drinky outlets.

Yes you can but shop around for the best deals, ask regular visitors to Goa where they change their money.

People don't usually change their sterling at airport ...it's a poor rate...and hidden charges.

ALSO beware when you do change money....unfortunately there are a few unscrupulous people who "miscount/short change" you.....ask other tourists where they recommend.

Elephant shops/Bruno's /little shop at end of beach road all have good reputation.....but as with everywhere in the world - not everyone has good intentions!
