Croatia :: Thoughts on Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello, In April, my family (2 adults & 1 child-11yr) and I will be spending 8 days/7 nights in Croatia. We fly in & out of Zadar. We're very easy going travelers & prefer spending more time in one location. Museums are wonderful but we prefer to be outdoors enjoying the weather, architecture, parks, walking, and taking in the ambience. The only "must see" on our itinerary right now is to spend the day at Plitvice National Park.

Here is our plan:

Day 1: Arrive in Zadar (late afternoon) Rent car and drive to Plitvice area.
Day 2: Plitvice National Park
Day 3/4: Split
Day 5/6: Hvar
Day 7: Zadar
Day 8: Fly out

Does this sound like a good plan? We prefer to base ourselves in one or two locations but I'm not sure this is the best for this particular trip. Not sure if we should just stay in Split and do a day trip to Hvar. I've also seen some travelers recommend staying away from the islands during off peak season. Any suggestions? Will it be difficult to catch a ferry/catamaran from Split to Hvar in April? Also, we were planning to rent a car the entire time so we could easily drive to Plitvice and then drive back to Zadar to catch our flight home. Will parking/driving be difficult in Split? Can we bring the car to Hvar or perhaps leave it in Split? We haven't booked any accommodations so if there is a place you've enjoyed I would love to hear about it. We usually like to stay within the 100 to 130 Euro/night and prefer B&B's or apartments over hotels. Thank you!!
