Finalize the number of days. Once this is done, you can pick packages based on your interests- be it beaches, backwaters or hills.
If planning for houseboat tour, check out for packages. Get enticing deals on food menu, most offering both vegetarian and non-vegetarian choices.
You will get great offers on package during off season. But remember, monsoon in Kerala- ie, June-August is not advisable for boating or outdoor activities.
Peak summer (April-May) is also not good for outdoor activities due to scorching summer heat.
