There are 2 ways how to get from Goa Airport to Arambol: taxi 🚕 or local bus 🚌. If you arrive at night, you have only one option – a taxi.
Way 1: take a taxi 🚕 from Dabolim airport to Arambol
Taxi price is varied from 1500 INR (20$) to 2500 INR (33$) and depends on how you order it. If you just go from the airport and take a taxi, it will cost 2500 INR or more.
Another option is to download GoaMiles app before the trip, and order taxi through the app when you arrive. Distance 60 kilometres, time 2 hours. Cost 1500 INR. We used the second option because it was the night 🌌 and buses just did not go. I have read that some travellers stayed at the airport till the morning and after that took the bus. So, you can decide 😉.
Way 2: Use local bus 🚌 from Dabolim airport to Chikalim => Panjim => Mapusa => Arambol
To get to Arambol by bus you should do the next 4 steps:
4️⃣ From Mapusa Bus Stand take the bus to Arambol. Distance 22 kilometres, time 1 hour 50 minutes. Price 30 INR (0.39$).
Let's sum up
As we can see, taking the bus you will spend only 80 INR (1$) and about 5 hours time (I’ve added 20 minutes for each stop where you can wait for next bus). It always matters of choice and priorities what way to choose 🤯😆.
⚠️ When you search your bus at the bus station, do not hesitate to ask bus drivers or conductors. They navigate you really quickly and do not trick you.
Finally, I would recommend taking cash 💵 to Arambol because there are a few ATM’s and without cash 😳. Instead, there are a lot of currency exchange points 💱.
