Getting around Being a small and well developed state, Goa is easy to navigate and explore. Taxis are readily available in most tourist areas and often of a good standard, however always make sure you agree on the fare before you set off. Tuk-tuks and auto rickshaws (three wheeled cabin motorbikes) are also common and definitely offer a memorable experience, but can be poorly maintained so use with caution. As a tourist it is not advisable to hire cars or motorbikes whilst on holiday in Goa. The rules of the road are very different to what we are accustomed to in the UK and the roads themselves can be in a poor condition, with limited road signs. Activities Goa has plenty of activities and experiences to choose from. There are excellent spa facilities in many of the hotels with most offering traditional Indian Ayurvedic treatments, as well as the chance to take part in yoga and meditation sessions. For the more active, there is a wide range of sports facilities available in the larger hotel resorts including golf courses, tennis courts and water sports. Outside the hotels, the state offers a wide variety of unique experiences including rich historical sites, striking temples and wildlife reserves.
