Travel options from Negombo to Mirissa

We fly to Colombo in late January and spend a night in Negombo before heading down to Mirissa and other points in Sri Lanka. Is it worth while taking the train from Negombo to Colombo to Galle and taking a taxi onward to Mirissa OR would it be a better idea to hire a taxi from Negombo directly to Mirissa? Cost vs convenience, I guess. How much time would be saved by taking a taxi? Looking forward to feedback from Fodoeites. Thanks and happy travels!

A taxi will be much quicker and more comfortable.

What time does your flight arrive in Colombo? A taxi from the airport directly to Mirissa will take about 2 1/2 hours via the expressways.
