How to get there
Airport is in Goa-Dabolim. This a national aswell international airport. We arrange airport pick-up for 50 euro to Namaste Yoga Farm which is a 3,5 hour drive, about 150km, and the driver knows where to go. Outside the airport terminal is a taxistand which charges more than 50 euro and the driver does not exactly know where we are located.
Train station Gokarna Road - on the Konkan line - is nine kilometres inland of Gokarna. The station code for Gokarna is GOK. There are hourly local busses for 5-10 rupees bringing you into the center of Gokarna, if you don't want to pay the 250-300 rupees auto rickshaw drivers charge. Trains for Goa and Kerala stop more frequently at Ankola or Kumta stations, both are about 30km from Gokarna and cost about 500-600 rupees to Namaste Yoga Farm with a taxi (no rickshaw's are available).
Bus if you do not get a direct bus or train to Gokarna, catch a bus to either Ankola or Kumta and from there take a taxi cause ricksaws are not allowed outside the towns. One direct bus a day runs between Goa and Gokarna, leaving Margao at 1pm and stopping at Chaudi (for Palolem) an hour later, Ankola and Karwar, before arriving at 5pm.
Taxi from Dabolim (Goa-airport), about a 3,5 hour drive will cost you 50 euro and i make sure you get a safe taxi with a sober driver. There is a taxi stand outside the airport, but i will cost you more than 50 euro and the driver doesn't know exactly where Namaste Yoga Farm is located.
Rickshaw from Gokarna town charges about 80-100 rupees. Make sure you tell them that you want to go to Namaste Yoga Farm, Hilltop, Kudle beach, cause if not, they bring you for 150 rupees to the other end of Kudle beach and then you have to walk all the way back over the beach where we are located.
