    Depends on whether you are prefer vegetarian or non-vegetarian. I found the cost to be reasonable for the food. For 6 people which included two kids along with chicken and seafood the average cost was close to INR 2000

    Transportation in a private car is extremely inexpensive in India. Or you could take a boat on the backwaters, which we did as well. If not, Tuk Tuk taxi is always available.
