1 Week in Croatia, Recommendations?

We will be in Amsterdam in Sept 2013 and will have I week available to spend in Croatia! Originally had more time but my husbands work got in the way! From what I can see there a only nonstop flights from Amsterdam to Zagreb, so based on that what do u recommend we do for that week? Fly to Dubrovnik and spend most time there? Or a cruise ( any recco's on a cruise or sailing trip)? Any other suggestions? We are in early to mid 50's, looking for midrange places to stay with great views in good locations, good restaurants, culture, shopping (night life not required) although we love to sit and have a few drinks🍻Thanks😀

My friend from New York did a week cruise on a smaller motor yacht in Croatia last summer.She came back with many beautiful things to say and she actually did her own itinerary with her friends, so they managed to see all the hot spots.

As far as I can remember, they started in Split, went to islands of Hvar, Brac, Korcula, Vis and ended the week by visiting Dubrovnik... I think she booked through NY company...I think ti was www.navigarecharter.com or something, but I would definitelly look into that option because you are your own boss as far as timing and destinations...

Hi am going to Croatia myself in October 2013. Look at following sites.

www.etn.nl/lcosteur.htm Low cost flights, Amsterdam to Dubrovnik $222 to $475, 1 stop. Dubrovnik to London $150 Sorry don't know your nationality but prices are in US here but can be found in Euro or Pound.

www.bestsingletravel.com Look for Optional trips on right of page. Anyone can do these. Have booked three trips, one to Montenegro and the other to Bosnia. Also doing a wine trip.

Accommodation, using airbnb, reasonable places, good prices. Place for me is a bed and clean, don't require much but they all look good and someone I know said no problems.

I will be in Croatia late August 2013. I want to sail around the islands.

Can anyone recommend a tour company that runs boats. I've been looking at Sail Croatia, can anyone give an opinion on them? I was looking at booking an above deck ensuite cabin. Are their boats nice? I will be travelling by myself and am 23 yrs old, so something with other young solo travelers would be preferred.

Also which is the best port to leave from? Dubrovnik or Split. I want to head up to Pag after the boat tour so which town would be better to end in? Is there any difference doing a round trip as apposed to going from Dubrovnik to Split or vise versa.

Shufls, deffinetly sail from Dubrovnik to Split. That way you will save cca 5hours on bus drive to get to Pag.

Thanks Goran!

I have booked a tour with Sail Croatia departing from Split and returning there.

Any advice on the best way to get to Pag from Split?
