What will it cost to be in Goa? Most food, accommodation and public transport, especially rail and bus, are exceptionally cheap. There is a widening range of inexpensive but clean places to stay and eat at. Budget travellers (sharing a room) can expect to spend about Rs 800-1000 (about US$16-20) a day to cover cost of accommodation, food and travel. Those planning to stay in fairly comfortable hotels and use taxis for travelling to sights should budget for Rs 5,000 (US$100) a day.
