I am confused about this inter-monsoon period in the south- koggala, hikkaduwa etc
Dave advises that peak season is November (for hotels)
Don't really understand the logic with hotels if the inter-monsoon kicks off towards end of October.
Is it because october is so much wetter than september and november and the inter monsoon relates more to wind rather than rain?
how long does the inter monsoon period last and am i making a wise choice by staggering a holiday between last 2 wks of september and first two in october rather than the whole of october? would going 2 weeks earlier in september make that much difference?
How bad can it get in October and would the rains completely ruin my holiday?
I do not know what to expect as it is my first time in sri lanka (don't mind some rain)
Also will there be a few things to do to keep me occupied whilst in the south- trips etc although i have no real itinery and don't want to travel for days- shorter outings would be good,
Thanks for any advice on this topic
