I'm thinking of booking a holiday to Mikros Gialos for the end of September and would appreciate your advice. Are there any tavernas within walking distance at this time of year? Many thanks
Read that there is a public bus service between Larnaca and Lefkara, but the book doesn't provide details and I can't find anything on the internet. Does anyone know the departure day and time, please. Also, is there any public bus between Nicosia and Lefkara, Lefkara and Paphos? Grateful if you can help.
I need to take an early bus from Limassol to Kalavasos. The route planner I've found on a website says, "Depart from Limassol Port (Limassol) Bus Stop and get on bus route Intercity Nicosia - Limassol towards Dionisiou Solomou Square (Nicosia)...." But it doesn't give an address of this bus stop. I need to find a hotel near to this bus stop? Does anyone know if Le Village Hotel or Harmony Bay Hotel is close to this bus stop. If not, any recommendation. Thanks.
I will arrive in Nicosia in the morning of 4/42015, I would like to tour around Nicosia before taking a bus to another city. Is there any place that I can store my luggage in Nicosia so that I don't have to carry my luggage around? It's an Easter Saturday, will places of interests be closed for Easter?
Does anyone know any tour operator for a day trip to Famagusta either from Ayia Napa or Kyrenia? I don't have a car, is there a bus that will take you there, how far away are the main sights/attractions from the bus stop after getting off? Do I need to catch another bus?
Could I please check with you if my planned itinery makes sense?
We are travelling with 2 kids (1x toddler of 2 and 1x baby of *just* 1). Goal for the trip is to recover a bit after a few hectic years with the kids (broken nights and so), so we would like to have some time to relax (sun, beach). However, we wish to see some of Cyprus as well. We wish to start slow, so we booked a holiday village (resort) in Paphos for the first week (something we never did before, we are used to hostels...). Due to the kids, we wish not to change accommodation too often (preferably max. 4 times or so). We have a rental-car for the whole trip.
Does the itinery below seem logical?
Does it make sense to rent another car in the North for what we plan to do?
Is Kyrenia a good place to stay to explore the North?
Are we too long in the Paphos / Polis area? Should we stay longer in the East instead?

I am planning a 2,5 week trip to Cyprus in April, and noticed that almost no car rental company will allow to take the car into the North, not even the larger Avis/Hertz/Europcar ones. I only found one (after I checked around 20!!), and that one was really expensive and seemed dodgy.
As I have to buy insurance at the border anyways, what would happen if I were to take the car into the North?
Reason for me not to higher a "second car" for the North period (however silly this sounds), is that I am planning to enter in the far West (coming from Polis), and planning to go back to the South in Nicosia.
Thanks for the advise whether I could risk being a little naughty or should REALLY stick to the contract.
