Goa on a Shoestring Budget: Learn How it's Done www.borongaja.com

Goa has beaches, water sports, beer, beautiful scenery and brilliant parties. There are many things to do in Goa and even on a shoestring budget, one can experience this paradise to the fullest. Here is a trip to experience Goa on a budget! 

Your first budget tip: Renting a cab in Goa is expensive and can eat into a major chunk of your overall travel budget. Renting a two wheeler is the easiest and cheapest way to get yourself to the popular beaches and the off-beat gems of Goa. You could also hire a four wheeler.
