I'm planning trip on 12 March 2011 to 19 Mar
Delhi -> Kochi -> kanyakumari -> Rameshwaram-> Madurai/Trivendrum ->Delhi

I will be travelling with my wife, 80+ mother and younger brother.We will be reaching Kochin on 12th around 11 AM.

Please advise

1)How much time to spend at each of these places?
2)Would like to spend 1 night in kerla backwater house boat? Which one is good? Any suggestions/tips?
3)Is it better to go to Madurai or Trivendrum to go back to Delhi?
4)How many days are sufficient in Kanyakumar and Rameshwaram?

Any other change in plan or suggestion is welcome.

You can stop at Alleppy and spend a night there on the house boat. It is not far from Kochi. Kochi itself has quite a few places to see.

Alleppy to Kanyakumari will take time.
Depending on when you reach Kanyakumari you can spend one or max two days in Kanyakumari.

Kanyakumari to Rameshwaram is a long ride. I would suggest this.

Kanyakumari to Madurai -> Overnight stay at Madurai and see the Meenakshi Temple.
Madurai to Rameshwaram next day -> Stay at Rameshwaram and see all the kunds by auto. It will cover the whole day or maybe part of the next day. One full day maximum.

Rameshwaram to Chennai -> Catch flight to Delhi
