It was been pouring down in most parts of the island but news is that the rains will stop in the coming days with sunshine predicted in the Kandy region. Bare in mind that forecasts can be wrong but its looking from January onwards.
There are leeches around at this time but once the rain stops they will disappear. During rainy days we provide all our guests with leech socks and plenty of salt to keep them away. If it is raining then it is best to stay indoors and away from thick jungle.
Hope that answers all your quesitons.
