Sri Lanka vacation with 4 year old.... 10 Day Itenerary Review Help...

Jump to last reply

We are a couple travelling with a 4 year old. He loves beaches - we have been to Goa, India before and he absolutely loved it.

We arrive in Colombo on 19th December and depart on Dec 30th from Mattala Airport (near udawalawe national park).

Interests - less time on road, (son gets cranky if we drive for too long) beaches, wildlife. Tea estates and Temples not a immediate priority... (although if there is a amazing buddha or other temple nearby, would love to go see).

1) Arrive in colombo on 19th night. stay near airport.
2) 20th - Drive to Unawatuna / Galle area - stay in beach 4 night.
Some snorkelling ?? Is the Unawatuna area a good place to snorkel ??
Perhaps do a day trip to Sinharaja rain forest - how long would this round trip be ?
3) 24th - Drive to Tangalle - stay 4 nights near beach
4) 28th - Drive to Udawalawe National Park - stay 2 nights
5) 29th - Safari in Park. (Is this better or is Yala better - son gets excited with elephants)..
6) 30th check out and drive to nearby Mattala airport.

PLease let me know if there are other places we should rather visit / stay at instead of the above. Open to changes. Only thing I cant change is the dates of travel and the return flight is out of Mattala not Colombo since it seemed much closer to the national parks.

Thanks a lot for your advise.
TB
