Hi,

A taxi from the airport to Negombo should cost LKR 1,200-1,500. There 2-3 taxi counters for tourists.

A tuk tuk should cost approx. LKR 700, but you have to go outside the airport gate to get a tuk tuk.

We stayed with Brenda and Ron Cornelius at their guest house. They were great and arranged taxi transfer to the airport. We had to leave at 3 am and they were up and made coffe for us before we left. Very hospitable and the guest house is really lovely. Tell them that Mark and Steve from Toronto sent you. Here are their co-ordinates: brenda_cornelius@hotmail.com

I always stay at Silver Sands, it is friendly, convenienent, and a good place to unwind a bit. The staff are very helpful and kind and you can sort out the rest of the trip from there with help if you need it. I have stayed there since 1998 and almost nothing has changed apart from hot water, better showers and air con in some rooms. It has many people like me who go back many times.

Silver Sands is recommended for a budget place. Its also located next to the beach.
