My husband and I are looking at traveling to Calangute at the end of September and staying at the Citrus. We will be traveling from the USA. After reading through several forums, I am concerned about safety as I have read that women shouldn't carry purses for fear of being robbed and to bring pad locks to use on hotel safes. Also must be careful exchanging money because many will try to count the money back quickly and rip you off. Am also concerned about airport transportation since I have read the airport is about 1.5 hours away from the hotel. Can anyone give me info about the safety in the area and about transportation to and from the airport?
