Me and my mum are going to Sri Lanka, it is her wish to visit the country and this year she's turning 60, so it will be her bday gift. Unfortunately, we didn't go in the Winter as planned due to illness, and have our next chance of vacation in July-August. I know this is not the recommended time of the year, so I was wondering if anyone could advice us to go anyway, or if we should reschedule for next year instead. What we are looking for is renting an Apartment or a house, close to a Beach for swimming, where there is possible to go out and have a meal in the evening or do local grocery shopping. We also want to travel around a bit and explore, so the trip would last for about 1 month.
All tips very much appreciated! :-)
