    • Areas in Cyprus

      Cyprus Jan 13, 2017 at 4:21 AM

      Hi All,

      Planning to visit Cyprus in Easter Break 2017 ( 10-17th April ). The main plan is to Unwind in beautiful location with couple of Beaches near by for Kids. Possible visit to Couple of scenic villages.

      Is Paphos a good base for this?

      Any recommendation would be highly appreciated? Is Cyprus okay vegetarian food?
      Would weather be okay in April. I checked online and it shows average temp to be 17 with Average max around 21-22. Sounds okay to us.

    • How has Kyrenia changed?

      Kyrenia Feb 18, 2010 at 7:52 AM

      Am planning to visit Kyrenia in June. Last visited about 10 years ago and found it a lovely, enchanting place. However... have just read a scarey couple of postings on TA which say that Kyrenia is much changed and not for the better, in particular, the poster said how run down it has become in recent years etc etc. Could anyone give me an honest appraisal of the situation before I make my final booking?

      Also, I was intending staying at Sammy's Hotel (can't stand 'posh' 5* ones!). Any comments on the hotel? And is it a walkable distance from the harbour? (Looks OK on the map, but maps can be misleading!).

      Any information you can give would be very, very gratefully received.

      Hi there,
      As I would arrive at Larnaca in the afternoon, is there any bus or several buses that let me go through the border to Kyrenia? Please give me more information about the bus number, amount, venue and time table as I am a student and couldn't afford the expenses of having a taxi by myself.
      Thanks for your help.

      I am trying to compare travel times. I would like to know how long it takes to drive from Ercan airport to Karsiyaka (this is near Kyrenia)and also how long it takes to drive from Larnaca airport to Karisiyaka?

      I will not be taking a taxi. Friends will be collecting me in their car. They have told me either airport is ok but I don't want to inconvenience them if Larnaca is a much longer drive

    • Driving from Larnaca airport to Kyrenia

      Kyrenia District May 9, 2008 at 6:21 AM

      It looks like the cheapest flying option from the UK is to go to Larnaca and travel across. How long does it take to drive, will it be possible to buy the additional required car hire insurance at approx 2am and do many of the Larnaca car hire companies actually refuse to let you take the car across?

      I know someone has previously suggested not telling them and then drive carefully but don't really want to take that risk.

      What is the approx taxi fare bearing in mind my flight arrives at around midnight? Was wondering if it would work out cheaper to get taxi to/from Larnaca and hire a car locally.

      Thanks in advance

      Ive recently visited North Cyprus with Mosaic Holidays, they were very poor with their service, and i found that they trully didnt care once they took our money!..

      (they didnt come to visit us at the resort - not even once, even though they brang us to another hotel instead of the one we originally paid for. we had to phone UK to complain, to be told there is nothing they can do!)

      Can anyone recomend another operator for North Cyprus please.. as i really dont want to have such a bad experence again.
      your advice would be much appreciated.
