Overnight near airport then travel to Kalpitiya

Arriving mid evening in December at Colombo airport then travelling up to Kalpitiya. Any recommendations for guest house / Homestay close to airport plus suggestions for transport to Kalpitiya. Taxi prices? Is there a bus network terminal at the airport?

Close to Airport there are few good places to stay. This will be around USD to 50 in a decent place. From Katunayake to Kalpitiya taking a reputed vehicle woulbe be the best. The chrage will be USD 0.50 per km.

You could stay in Negombo.

Taxis cost approx. LKR 70-75/km one-way.

Only buses at the airport are 187 and EX03 which you can take to Katunayake Bus Station and change.

Hi Janaka,

Please STOP violating TA rules about selfpromotion, your messages will disappear soon! Get a registration on TA as supplier of daytrips under e.g. Colombo and then genuine positive reviews, THAT'S the sole representation on TA allowed for Lankan operators.

All the best,
