Croatia Itinerary

Hi.. we will only be in Croatia for eight days. Our flights depart and leave from Split. Right now, I have booked two days in Split and one night in Mostar. I have been to Dubrovnik back in the '70's and don't feel the need to return. So I wanted to concentrate on some areas around Split and North. What would you suggest? I thought about Zadar and making day trips from there, but maybe we should explore and stay overnight in other areas. We will have a car. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Why not go out to Hvar Island for a couple of days? You can take your car over on the ferry, and there is plenty to explore there. Its not really north, though.

Plitvice Lakes National Park, a few hours from Split, is amazing (huge turquoise-colored lakes full of trout, with dozens of waterfalls). By car it's easy to get to from Split. Although you could see the park as a long day trip, staying the night is best - arrive the night before and see the park first thing the morning, before the mobs of tour groups arrive. (I assume you're going in season and not in January.)

A good guide book would probably serve you very well and provide lots of information to help you make your choices.

you're right. I need a good guidebook. Right now my trip is a little weird. We land in Split and spend two nights there and then go on to Mostar, and then from there I want to go back North of Split. Should I land in Split, get the car and then go to Mostar right away and then backtrack to Split and then to Zadar? I really want to go to Mostar but it's out of the way. Since we are only there 7 nights/8 days- does it make the most sense to do day trips out of Zadar and/or Split?

It depends on what you want to see and experience. I liked Split a lot and I liked it better than Zadar, but many people don't like Split. Andrew is right about Plitvice Lakes -- well worth seeing.
