1st timers....

Well after holidaying all over Europe, and as far as N/Z I am shamed that we haven't ever been to Croatia, BUT that all changes next year, we are staying in Cavtat for two weeks in August at the Iberostar Epidaurus

We would love to hear of anywhere nice to visit inc Dubrovnik.

I am sure we have made a good choice, as we have heard and read great reviews of this country.

Thank's for any advice

John.

If you need more information on Cavtat just look at the post on the Forum today entitled 'Just back from Paradise'. Cavtat is lovely, but just so you know, will be very busy in August like everywhere on the Croatian coast - it's High Season. Apart from Dubrovnik, which you can reach by bus or boat, there are many excursions to Montenegro, to Mostar in Bosnia, not to mention the islands around Dubrovnik.

Great choice in going to Croatia...you could easily get to Dubrovnik when you want and the good thing about Cavtat is that you will get away from all the crowds of Dubrovnik....and DannyG has given good advice in terms of trips from there including Kotor and Mostar!

Do keep in mind that Cavtat is also busy in August, but nothing compared to Dubrovnik. It is lovely and you can find some many swimming spots along the peninsula to enjoy our clear clean water of the Adriatic.

Thank you for your quick reply's, yes we have read "just back from paradise," and are really looking forward to our visit and exploring around Cavtat and beyond.

We arrive on the 27 August so hope we may miss a lot of the crowds.

Thank you once again for the feed back.

John, I hope you will come back to TA after your holiday and tell us, as a 1st timer, how you found your holiday in Croatia. Did you get good advice or were there other things we could have advised you on.

Yes thanks for all your advice, I have looked at other post's as well regarding exchanging money, and it seems Kunas is the best option than Euro's..

Will report back next year, thanks once again for your help.

John.
