Glad I found this website.
I am travelling with my 84 year young mother (she’s in good health) for 9 days. Below is my draft itinerary. Please suggest changes if needed – places worth visiting that are not on my list or places that I can skip. If there is some climbing/hiking involved, my mom will stay back in the car/hotel. We love the outdoors, and are looking for nature, culture and good vegetarian food. We don’t swim/dive, so not interested in those. Thanks in advance.

Hi with her age your above itneary suits her spend a day in pasikudah beach which is calm white sand beach i think she wil enjoy itSeptember 23, 2017 at 4:17 pm #18481John – AdminAdmin
I do not think December is the best month to go to Pasikudah, the sea will not be as calm and it can rain a lot during this time of the year. The south coast is better. Are you planning to go to any National Parks? If you are nature lovers then this would be my only recommendation.September 23, 2017 at 8:03 pm #18502malathycUser
Thanks for the replies. Not planning to go to Pasikudah – too far, and we are not water-babies. We like to walk along the beaches and will do that in the south/west coast between Weligama and Colombo. What National Park(s) would you recommend that would be enroute?September 23, 2017 at 8:44 pm #18513John – AdminAdmin
Minneriya is very close to the Dambulla/Sigiriya area and you could also consider Udawalawe as a stop between Ella and the South Coast. It is normal to start the safari early morning or late afternoon so this would need to be taken into account with the drive.October 22, 2017 at 12:54 pm #23096Sarasa WalkerMember
these days South west coast is best,Midigama,Weligama,
Kawdulla Safari is best early morning, You can see bunch of elephants.Its very near Minneriya
