Preparing for Sri Lanka with kids

Jump to last reply

Hi..I'm holidaying in Sri Lanka for 2 weeks with my wife and 2 young kids, 5 and 3 years old.

The health recommendation sites I've visited on the web recommend that we all get malaria prophylaxis before going.

For those in Sri Lanka now or those who have visited recently, would you agree ? I know it's probably safer to do so but am just concerned about the side-effects of the drugs (hallucination,psychosis, nightnmares) especially for my young kids.

I'm not sure how severe the malaria risk is in Sri Lanka.

We are traveling thru Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Ella, Yala and Uduwalawe parks, Tangalle, Mirissa, Galle, Negombo and Bentota.

Thanks!

ERic
