Goa is not for people who wish to laze all day long tanning under the hot sun. It offers excellent outdoor activities that use three sources of energy: water, earth, and sky. The sky is the limit, with endless options like parasailing, hot ballooning, or Hang Gliding. At the same time, those with a fetish for the water could opt for scuba diving, snorkelling, or other water sports. Following activities mentioned are just the tip of the iceberg.
