Tours and transportation in the southern region of Sri Lanka
The best way to getting around in Sri Lanka for short and medium distances is using a Tuk Tuk taxi service, the colourful three-wheelers are present everywhere. They are the very authentic way to move around and get some fresh air, the speed is good enough to enjoy the surrounding environment and ask for a stop in every moment.
Villa Saltasia would like to recommend some of the trusted guys working around Mirissa, they are friendly, polite and reliable local English speaking professionals with a deep knowledge of the area.

Tuk Tuk are the best option if you want to do some mini tour, go shopping or reach some special beach, if you are interested in having a personal guide for longer tour or groups, we suggest to contact Shantha, skilled professional tourist guide speaking both English and Italian:

Last option is using buses, they are the cheapest and most used way to move around, the network reaches every corner of the country and the frequency is really high, not every bus is comfortable though and sometimes they could be a bit crowded.
