I looked briefly on google and couldn't find very much information like this. Have you already booked your campsite? I would ask the people who work at the place that you are staying at.

No havent booked yet,but we have several weeks to do some research ,was thinking late Feb so hopefully most of the xmas traffic will have gone home resulting in more options.
Thanks

I live in Goa, and I'm not aware of any campsites. You might find something in the north area near Calangute. The only one I was able to google up is something opposite Sai Prasad Guest House,South Anjuna.

Weather is nice. Warm during to day, cool in the night. You can take anti malaria pills, but more effective would be to use insect repellent spray containing DEET.

Hi Sharon thanks for your reply,when you say cool at night does that mean i have to put extra clothing on or use a warm sleeping bag,how cool is cool please and thanks again.

Best Wishes

Hi Craig,

No need for extra clothing. Average temperatures are around 26C so the days are pretty warm and the nights are a tad bit cooler. Not cold by any stretch of imagination.

Check http://www.weatherbase.com/ for more information.

Have a great trip.

Sharon

do not go to Calangute for camping, it is full of tourists. 500 rs is verry expensiv even for calangute!!!
may you go more north like Ashvem, Mandrem or arambol and ask in guesthouses if you can camp in there garden. it is verry nice there
i stay in vagator with my bus near 9 bar
