driving to Mostar from Dubrovnik

Jump to last reply

In the midst of researching for our upcoming trip to Croatia this July, I came across the town Mostar and now really want to include that in our itinerary. (DH and I love history and culture) Am now debating if we should do it as a day trip from Dubrovnik or drive there ourselves on our way to Hvar via Split. While we think it's good to leave the driving to the local, not sure if we want to do two day trips (we plan to do a day trip to Montenegero) during our four full days stay in Dubrovnik and it seems to be some backtracking as well.

If we do the drive, we probably will either stay one night in Mostar or drive back to the coast for overnight before driving up to Split the next morning.

Would like to get some advice from those who have been there.

1) Is it an easy drive? How's the road condition? Any potential hassles?
2) Is it safe to go there ourselves?
3) If staying a night at Mostar is recommended, any hotel/accommodation recommendations?

W'll be traveling with two children (9 and 5) if that make a difference. They are good travellers so a few hrs in the car is fine though they won't like it.

Thanks in advance.

Winnie
