Water and Amusement Parks

Almost each city in the state has a couple of amusement parks on its outskirts. They usually have separate water and dry rides. They have lockers for your valuables and you may even hire out swimwear. Ladies are advised to not bare too much skin, if they don’t want to be stared at all through the outing.

Veega land (Kochi), Malabar Fun City(Calicut), Fantasy Park (Pakkad), Happyland Amusement Park (Thiruvanthapuram) are a few that can be visited. Most of them are excursions of about an hour outside the main cities.

Scuba Diving

It is possible to do some scuba diving in Kerala and enjoy the rich variety of underwater life. Kochi and Thiruvanthapuram both offer opportunities for scuba diving. You should check out their itineraries and the equipment available before picking a company.

Just make sure that you don’t pick a day with bad weather as it can spoil the dive. Also remember not to move out too far into the ocean away from the safety zone. A basic level of physical fitness is a must if you wish to do some scuba diving.

Spa

'Ayur' is life and 'Veda' means science in Sanskrit and so Ayurveda would literally translate into 'the science of life'. Ayurvedic rejuvenating massage treatments are available in all major cities. These practitioners use fresh medicinal herbs along with aromatic oils and special massage techniques to release tension and relax the muscles. Make sure that you choose a place that has a good word of mouth reputation. If there is an in-house Ayurvedic doctor, it is bound to be even better.
