After numerous personal visits to Goa, we are now ready with this comfortable 5-day trip to explore Goa beyond its beaches, beers, and babes! We will see the 'other' more endearing side of Goa. So for the first two nights, we'll be staying at an old Portuguese mansion which was built in 1590. Which makes it older than the Taj Mahal! We will go on an island exploration tour, a heritage walk, have food in a Goan home, and experience a fenny tasting. The next two nights will be spent amidst nature at an eco-resort situated right next to the Bhagwan Mahaveer Wildlife Sanctuary. Here we go for night trails, watch birds with experts, visit ancient temple ruins and also go on open-jeep safari.

We start early today and have the whole day planned for you to explore a never-seen-before Goa! In the morning we will embark on a guided Latin Quarter Walk. The walk will be through the narrow brightly colored lanes of Fontainhas, also called the Latin Quarter of Goa. From here we will head to Divar Island for lunch. The island is accessible through a ferry ride! Once at our host family's home in Divar, we will enjoy a local musician and also help the host in the kitchen. We will have a Goan lunch with the family. Post lunch, we will explore the island of Divar. We will visit the historic Piedade Church and the legendary Saptakoteshwar Temple ruins. Follow this with a quick cashew feni tasting session and local snacks. Dinner will be at a popular seafood jaunt in Panjim. Back to Loutolim and overnight stay at Figueiredo Mansion.
