To avoid using a car or a taxi, we tried the public bus and found it is possible to travel by bus and reach Poovar. We boarded a SETC bus at Kanyakumari and reached the old bus stand at Nagercoil. Post lunch, when we went back to this bus stand, we were told that we could get a bus for Kaliakkavilai only from the new bus stand at Vadasery. So we took an intra city bus and got to Vadasery where we took a bus going towards Trivandrum and got off at the Kaliakkavilai station. At Kaliakkavilai, we took a KSRTC bus going towards Neyyattinkara and got off at Virali. At Virali, we hailed an auto and reached our destination, the Club Mahindra Resort at Poovar. There are many challenges in using buses and other public transport in the above sector. The signboards are all in Tamil or Malayalam with some showing destination in English. One has to be ready to ask for help and directions. However, co passengers and conductors in the buses are helpful and guide one to the destination. Bus quality is poor with the possibility of rain water leak into the bus during rains. Washroom facilities are poor at the bus stations.
