  • The rajputana Sheraton at Jaipur and the Jaypee Palace were excellent but The Park in Delhi, wasn't in the same level, the public spaces like corridor were dirty.
    Excellent experience guided and suggested by an excellent tour conductor. Thanks a lot.

Canacona is one among the five taluka which make up southern Goa. It is among the most visited destinations of Goa tourism because of its scenic ambiances. Etymologically Canacona is a distorted version of Konkan which itself derives from Sanskrit word Konvapuram.

This area boasts some of the most outstanding sceneries because of its setting against backdrop of the Sahyadri Hills. It is abundant in lush green vegetation with a diverse collection of flora species.
