we are looking to go on a 2 week holiday to Sri Lanka with our 2 children aged 9 and 11 yrs in late June early July. We have not got an extensive budget so luxuries will be kept to a minimum.
We would like to tour the island first for approx 5 days. Our flight would arrive at about 3am. The rest of our time would we would like to spend in a guest house or villa with pool close to the beach.
We think hiring a safe local driver with car would be ideal to see the sights. Do the drivers organise the route to your specification and accommodation? How much do they usually charge?
Where would be a great place either guest house or villa to stay near a beach for our final days and thinking of getting back to the airport.
Is there a lot of rain in late June/early July to spoil the holiday.
Could anyone give us any advice?
