In fact, you can even get cozy in a converted heritage hotel or live with the host family at a heritage

There are plenty of heritage houses in Siolim, Assagao, Saligao, Panjim, and Loutolim. Be sure to not miss out on Fontinhas in Panjim.

4. Head over to an amusement park in Goa

Despite its small size, Goa has a handful of amusements parks that make for a perfect Family trip to Goa.

Spread across 35,000 sq ft, Froggyland Water World in Nuvem is currently the largest amusement park in Goa, with a wave pool, rain dance, bumper boats, zorbing, beach volleyball and more.

Splashdown Waterpark in Arpora is also a great choice and the recently opened indoor Snow Park in Baga makes for some great memories.

3. Shop at Goa’s malls

A family trip to Goa is incomplete without some much needed shopping. Be it toys for the kids or souvenirs for friends and family back home. Head into Caculo Mall in Panjim or the newly opened Mall De Goa in Porvorim. Both guaranteed to leave you plenty of choice for a long shopping session. Mall De Goa also has plenty of games and rides on the top floor. So you can enjoy some peace of mind as you shop through all the different stores in the massive mall.

2. Bird watch on your Family Trip to Goa

On the western tip of the island of Chorao along River Mandovi, mangrove swamps cover this bird-watchers’ paradise aptly named after India’s best-known ornithologist – Salim Ali.

This is Goa’s only bird sanctuary. A variety of local and migratory birds can be found on this island. If you’re carrying a DSLR then you can get some very neat and close shots of the birds from the Mandovi river. A boat ride in Chorao is one of the best ways to get some very pretty shots of the wildlife here.
