I've been here in feb 2014. When I arrived I didn't like it, I thought it was a touristic place and the city center was too crowdy and interesting at all. At the end I've found my dimension here and I stayed 10 days more or less. I slept at the sea shore, a beautiful place on the beach. It wasn't a luxury place but the owner and his wife were like a family to me at the end of the trip.
The backwaters are amazing obviously, I would not suggest to sleep in the boat cos after a while it's boring.
There is also an Indian coffee house near the beach and it's really good and cheap.
I hang out at Mandela. An hotel on the beach. Really nice atmosphere and nice owners!
I would like to go back there, walking on the beach and take my time in front of a sunset. I suggest a visit!
