You have only two full days.

If you reach on 20th morning, you can head straight for Munnar which will take about 4 hours from Kochi airport. You can spend the rest of the day and 21st for Munnar sight seeing.

22nd morning you can proceed to Fort Kochi where you can do some boat cruises and visit the nearby islands and other attractions.

23rd morning - If you leave early morning you can reach the airport in about 2 hours.

If you include Thekkady or Kumarakom, you will have a very tight schedule, which will spoil the fun of the trip.
