We are traveling to Sri Lanka for our honeymoon this December and I am trying to nail down the itinerary. Below is where I am at, if I were to shave a night off the beaches at the end where should I add it? Also which beaches would you cut back? Or should I move a beach night to Galle?
I am emailing with BSL and have found some of their hotel rates significantly higher than what I can find online. Should I book myself? Is there any reason theirs might be higher? I do see some of theirs have half board while online it is breakfast only but the price differential was large in a few cases. Our hotels are mostly in the $150 - $250 range.
If there are any recommendations for snorkeling locations in December aside from Unawantuna please advise. Any recommendations for places to camp in Yala? I look forward to your input.
